May Perpetual Light Shine Upon Her

Dolores Davister is the mother of Holy Cross parishioner Gary (Pat) Davister.

Dolores M. Davister (Mrs. Louis) 88, Sugarbush, died unexpectedly, Friday evening October 28, 2011, surrounded by her loving family at St. Vincent Hospital, Green Bay. She was born August 04, 1923 in Walhain to the late Amand and Laura (Monfort) LaCourt. On September 16, 1941 she married Louis Davister at St. Amand Church, Walhain. He preceded her in death on April 29, 2005. She and Louis farmed the homestead until retirement. She enjoyed dancing at Riverside Ballroom on Friday nights. In recent years, she looked forward to going to the Chapel of Good Hope in Champion and the Senior Citizens meal site in Luxemburg. She also enjoyed her meetings at the Belgian Club. We can’t forget those burgers that she enjoyed at Joe Rouer’s. Mom was a very faith filled person and prayed many rosaries each day. If she knew that her children and grandchildren were traveling, she made sure she prayed an extra rosary and sprinkled holy water for their safe travel. Her greatest joy was being with her family. Mom was a good baker and cook. She baked many loaves of bread, sometimes as many as 10 or 12 at a time and 1,000’s of Belgian pies that she shared with family, friends and church activities. The day before her passing she assisted in preparing and serving the parish soup supper. She also helped make many roasters of chicken dumpling soup. Mom always tended to her large garden and shared the produce with family and friends. Green beans never went to waste as sometimes, over 100 quarts in a season, ended up being canned. Oh, we can’t forget the Davister dill pickles and Mom’s casserole that she shared with many as well as her fruit punch that was served at the holidays. Mom was always busy crocheting kitchen towels, clothes hangers and she made sure that her children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren and great-great-grandchild each had one or more of her afghans.

Survivors include her five children, Gary (Pat) Davister, Green Bay; their children Andrea (Matt) Jones and Alyssa Davister, Karen (Bernie) Skaletski, Green Bay; their children Brian (Julie), Scott (Theresa), Gregg (Nicole), and Curt (Jill) Skaletski, Larry (Judy) Davister, Sugarbush; their children Tina (Jeffrey) LeRoy, Patrick Davister, Tami (Jeff) Theys, and Kevin (Jamie) Davister, Shelby Davister, (and special friend Paul) Luxemburg; and her children Stacy (Kevin) Bouche, Robbie (Kim) Davister, and Bobbie Jo (Ary) Mulder, Dean (Connie) Davister, Humboldt; and their children Dan (Cora), John (Tiffany) and Jamie, Ken (Sue) Davister, Ashwaubenon; and their children Nick (Jennifer), Michelle (Tim) Boland and Alison (special friend Adam); and 32 great-grandchildren: Fiona; Claire, Evan, Emma; Kyle, Jack; Logan, Peyton; Ella, Dylan; Amanda (Brian), Alexander, Ashley, Adam, Austin; Derrick, Devin; Logan, Jordan, Lillian; Emilie, Lauren; Morgan, Bryce, Graham, Bailey; Hunter, Andie, Courtney, Addison; Jacob and one great-great-grandchild due in December, three step grand-children, Nick, Evan, and Michael, one great-great grandchild Carson. She is also survived by one sister-in-law Grace Allen, Green Bay, as well as many nieces, nephews, relatives and friends. Dolores was preceded in death by her husband Louis, one son Robert, her parents Amand and Laura; grandchildren Dennis and Angela Davister and Therese Skaletski; sister Marie (Ben) Hock, brother Aaron (Loretta) LaCourt and her brother-in-law Sylvester Allen, father-in-law and mother-in-law Ernest and Rose Davister.
