Patricia Marie Davis (Nichols) left this world on June 18, 2023. She was born on November 10, 1952, to John H and Dorothy (Deveny) Nichols
Patty was a loving and loyal wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother. She is survived by her husband James, her daughters Michelle, Tina, Melissa and son James, her sons-in-law Chris and Mike and daughter- in-law Joanie. She is also survived by her fifteen grandchildren, Michael, Nicholas, Meghan, Devilan, Shaylyn, James, Sarah, Tyler, Alex, Allyson, Dylan, Lucas, Grace, Elizabeth, and Timothy as well as five great grandchildren, Damien, Michael, Gabriel, Aria, and newborn Maisie. Her grandchildren, whom she truly adored and spent boundless amounts of time with knew her as their beloved Meme who guided, protected, and supported them in countless ways.
Patty left the city of Boston, where she was born and raised, for the adventure and the security of military life with her husband Jimmy who was in the Air Force. They set out to create a life for themselves and their growing family where they would face the many challenges of life, head on and together. Through thick and thin, they built themselves a beautiful family in which they would share many adventures together as military life provided lots of opportunities for such. She wouldn’t necessarily reflect back on service life with great reverence, but military life offered them stability for their growing family. She traveled tirelessly with Jim, each of them always having the hopes of one day settling close to their hometown of Boston, Massachusetts.
Patty’s personality was selfless, fearless, authentic to her core, inclusive, warm-hearted, fun-loving and when it had to be, fierce! Patty had a natural way with children and loved to dote on them. She was always spoiling her many grandchildren with love and affection. She constantly showered them with gifts she saw fitting for each and every one of their unique interests and talents.
Pat had a love of family and friendship, both of which she certainly had quite a bit over her 70 years. She never missed an opportunity to dance and always wanted everyone to join in on the fun. She was so playful with her family and friends, and even if she didn’t always admit it, she (mostly!), loved the dynamics of a large family. She also never missed an opportunity for a shopping trip to the city and enjoyed indulging in all that life had to offer.
The shopping trips and travels, along with all the celebrations, created unbreakable bonds with friends and family. Pat reveled in spending time with her loved ones and was always up for fun. She focused on providing for her family and friends with anything they needed while rarely worrying about herself. Pat never missed a chance to lend a helping hand to anyone in need.
Pat was a wonderful human being whose impact will be forever imprinted on all those lucky enough to have known her. She was a selfless woman whose passing created a hole in our hearts that can never be filled. Her wish for us to all to live our lives fearlessly and selflessly will forever remain in the hearts and minds of all those who love her. Her ability to unconditionally love and protect, provide, support and forgive is permanently etched into all our hearts.
Visiting hours will be held in the Burns Funeral Home, 354 Boston Rd., (Rt. 3A), Billerica, Saturday, June 24, from 2:30 - 4:30 PM. Relatives and friends invited.
