Alexina “Alice” (Perusse) Davis, 103 years of age, passed away peacefully on March 31, 2017 at the Golden Living Nursing Home in Plymouth, Massachusetts.
Alice was born in Hartford, Connecticut on – and was the daughter of Adelard Charles Perusse (Machinist/Fireman) and Amelia (VanderHayden) Perusse (Housewife). Alice spent her early life in Milford New Hampshire with her parents and siblings, Elsie, Lilly, Eva and Joe.
Alice was the beloved wife of Howard G. Davis, and was married on Nov. 29, 1940 at the age of 26 in South Berwick Maine.

After retiring as an employee of the University of New Hampshire, Alice and Skip moved to Titusville Florida, in Brevard County, where they lived for over 35 years together. Alice had two step children, Allen Davis of Dover Point New Hampshire, and Elaine (Davis) Waugh of Hingham.
