Obituary

Columbus, MT – Eileen Davey passed Monday, Dec 3th.
Eileen was born October 1, 1925, in Omaha NE to Edward and Dorothy McCaffrey. She attended Our Lady of Mount St. Mary’s College in Los Angeles, CA for a short time, but soon returned home. While working at Creighton University, she met her future husband, Michael Eugene Davey - “Gene”.
After marrying in Omaha, Eileen and Gene moved to Gene’s hometown of Columbus, MT and Gene joined the family business - Davey Motor Company. Eileen was a very proud mother of seven children and raising them was her priority. Once the older children became teenagers, she found her second true passion – snow skiing.

When the snow was flying, the norm was three or four trips each week to Bridger Bowl outside Bozeman, MT, a mere 232 miles round trip. If the roads were clear, the Ford station wagon was difficult to catch at 100+ mph.

Eileen watched as her children scattered east to west. She very much enjoyed visiting all in locations much different from Columbus. She continued to ski until she reluctantly retired the skis after celebrating her 84th Birthday.

Eileen loved working in her yard (and any neighbors that needed attention) and running a rescue shelter for any stray cat, dog, rabbit, fox, skunk or raccoon that found themselves homeless in Columbus. They shared the rock house which Eileen proudly called home.

She is preceded in death by her husband Gene and her sister Dodie Cleasby. She is survived by her sister Mary Jane Harvey and brother Owen McCaffrey. She will be greatly missed by her daughters Mary Bliley (Chip), Teresa Hawkins (Tom), and Dorothy Davey; her sons Mike (Maureen), Joe (Nancy), Mark (Joan) and Timothy; her grandchildren Paul, Mark, Katie, Scott, Phil, Robert, Thomas, Heather, Timothy, Molly, Mark, Michael and John; and her 8 great grandchildren.

A Memorial Mass will be held at 10:30 a.m. on Friday, December 7, 2018 at Saint Mary’s Catholic Church in Columbus. The Rite of Committal will follow at Mountain View Cemetery in Columbus. Condolences for the family may be shared at smithfuneralchapels.com.
In lieu of flowers please make a donation in Eileen’s name to:

My sincere condolences to the Davey family members. I met Eileen's daughter Dorothy /D Ann nearly 5 years ago in Minneapolis while I was caring for my dear 100 year old mom there . D Ann and I have been friends ever since. My dad, Oscar bought Gene and Eileen's cattle for packing plant processing and my Dad also bought a Ford from Gene. We discovered this when D Ann and I got to know each other. Small world ! Wow! Sure wished I could have gotten to meet dear Eileen but always kept up on her thru D Ann . Eileen and I shared the passion and love for skiing as I live near Deer Valley Resort in Park City UT now. Again my deepest sympathy to DAnn and her brothers and sisters . May she rest in peace and God Bless Her Real Good!
