Tina Davis was born June 9, 1959 in Cincinnati, Ohio, and died on June 12, 2022, at the age of 63. Tina was the loving mother of Matt (Megan) Corcoran, Kara (Vikram Vaidyanathan) Keeton, and the late Brent Keeton; the dear grandmother of Kylie, Phil, Mason, and Eli Corcoran; and beloved dog mom of Tammy Pancake. Tina also left behind her partner, Mike Murray; her parents, Joyce and Phil Davis; her sisters, Vicki Conneighton and Jill (Tim) Feichtner; and her nieces, Ashley (Jeff) Ayers and Amanda (Joshua) Walls. Tina will also be missed by her uncles, aunts, cousins, and many, many friends.
Tina grew up in Erlanger, Kentucky, with her parents and sisters. She graduated from Dixie Heights High School, class of 1977. She had a prosperous 33 year career at UPS, starting as a loader/unloader, and progressing through driving package cars, and culminating in her favorite role, feeder truck driver. Through her career, developed friendships and touched the lives of hundreds of colleagues and customers.
Not only was Tina a devoted mother, but she became a second mother to her kids’ friends, neighborhood kids, or anyone who needed a little extra love. Her grandkids were the apple of her eye. Tina loved to bring people together, whether they were family, friends, or strangers, everyone was family to her.
Tina’s motto was to “always celebrate life.” She loved to cook (a special shout out to her casseroles and ranch dip), host parties, go boating, gardening, and volunteering. There’s no place she’d rather be than drinking a Coors Light on her boat or around the fire at Dale Hollow Lake. She brought together 100+ people at the Cincinnati Light the Night Walk to raise money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, she started a scholarship fund in Brent’s name at St. Martin of Tours school, and launched an annual toy drive at UPS benefitting the Ronald McDonald house of Cincinnati.
Tina was fiercely independent and a force to be reckoned with, while demonstrating more strength and courage than most in fighting through the adversity she faced. After losing her son, Brent, to cancer in 2005, she was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2013. Through these events, laughter (and Big Mac’s) was her medicine. She drew creative hairstyles on her pictures after losing her hair, and bought countless ridiculous hats, wigs and scarves that she bought knowing she would never wear in public but would buy just to put on a fashion show in her living room.
Visitation will be 9:30am to 10:30am on Saturday, June 25, 2022 at St. Martin of Tours Church, Cheviot, Ohio 45211. A Mass of Christian burial will begin at 10:30. A celebration of life will be held at Keller’s Cheviot Cafe immediately following the services. Memorial donations in lieu of flowers can be made to the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Greater Cincinnati in her honor at the link below.
