Rest in Peace Our Sister
Davida T. Thomas, 63, a resident of Scranton, died Thursday after a courageous battle with colon cancer.
Born in Scranton, she was the daughter of the late David Morgan and Renee P. Thomas. A 1972 graduate of Scranton Technical High School, she recently retired from General Dynamics, Scranton Plant, after 34 years of service. Davida was a devoted mother and grandmother who will be deeply missed. Her love for crocheting was cherished by all of the new babies that received her homemade blankets. Whenever presented with a new project she would be sure to complete it as quickly as possible. She loved to spend time with her grandchildren and their friends and all the little ones that blessed her life. Animals were also very important to her. As a believer in giving back, she was a sister with the Fraternal Order of Eagles, Scranton Aerie 314, for more than 12 years. She enjoyed her time there and was past madam president for the auxiliary.
Her family would like to thank the staff of hematology and oncology for their help and support in this long battle, especially Dr. Kashuri and Sara. They would also like to thank the staff of Regional Hospital of Scranton for its kind support and compassion.
Surviving are a daughter, Jessica A. Thomas and her fianc√©, Gerard M. Gambo, Scranton; granddaughter, Alexandria Morgan Thomas and partner, Jamie G. Fernandes, Taylor; cousins; and countless that referred to her as “Grams” and “Great Grams.”
She was also preceded in death by a brother, David Morgan Thomas Jr.; and grandson, David “Bubba” Thomas.
Services will be held Thursday at 8 p.m. from the Davies and Jones Funeral Chapel, 135 S. Main Ave., by the Rev. Sam Ferretti.
Friends may call from 5 until the time of service.
