Brenda Sue Welch, 70, of Pensacola, Florida passed away on Thursday, July 2, 2020.
Ann Terry Davis, loving partner, mother, mother-in-law, aunt and friend passed away peacefully at home on Thursday, July 2, 2020, with family by her side. An illness that no one expected took her too quickly. We will never understand exactly why.
Many people counted Ann among their “dearest” friends. She was an adventurous woman and engaging conversationalist with a sharp mind and a spunky sense of humor. Ann was a kind hearted listener and confidant…with a soft spot in her heart for people in need. She possessed an intuitive sense of fairness. For Ann, treating others graciously and with respect came easily. She poured love into the world, and she will be profoundly missed.
Born in Pensacola, Florida on January 20, 1945 to Louis H. Davis and Ann E. Herrington, Ann spent intermittent years in Arkansas, Pensacola, Japan, California and Michigan before graduating from Pensacola High School in 1963. She attended college in Orlando, Florida while working at Orlando Regional Hospital, where she developed her passion for the field of medicine. She moved to Pennsylvania in 1969, where she remained until returning to Pensacola in 2003. In 2008, Ann began the next chapter of her life and entered the work of real estate, retiring at the end of 2019. Organizations including the League of Women Voters and American Pen Women brought much enjoyment to Ann, and she had great dreams and aspirations for her post-retirement life…but that was not to be.
Ann is survived by her loving sons Brian Lapp, Brent Lapp (Katie), and Scott Lapp (Nancylynn); grandchildren Mia, Max, Vance and Anderson, brother Scott Davis, sister Gloria Shine, and loving partner in life since 2003, Gerald G. Day.
Due to the restrictions of the COVID-19 pandemic, there will be a graveside service for family members only. However, the family would like to express its utmost appreciation for the support and caring hearts of so many of Ann’s friends who have reached out to do what they could for Ann and her family during these past few weeks. Your friendship is so cherished. Please remember her in your own special way.

Kara Lindsey Allen, age 39, was born on June 8, 1981 in Fargo, North Dakota and raised in Pensacola, FL until her untimely passing on Tuesday, June 30, 2020. Even as a young girl it became evident Kara embodied the essence of a kind heart and nurturing spirit. She had an affection for swimming and was a valued member of the East Hill swim team as a child. Some of her most treasured memories centered around trips to the family hardware store and days spent with her Dad. More recently, she looked forward to taking out of town trips with her Dad to various cities across the country.
Kara also expressed an appreciation for painting landscapes with her grandpa’s brushes, and an unabashed fondness for dressing up in her grandma’s jewelry. Above all else, was Kara’s immeasurable love and sincere devotion to her family and friends. She spent a portion of every summer with her Mom and Grandparents in Minnesota enjoying time on the farms of all her family in that area.
She attended Woodham High School in Pensacola where she inevitably became known for her friendly personality and welcoming disposition. Kara never met a stranger in her life and loved all animals big or small. Kara often served as a beacon of light for those in need of solace and comfort, animals, and humans alike. People were drawn to her lighthearted nature and quirky sense of humor; with Kara, there was never a dull moment.
Kara is preceded in death by grandfather, Don Halvorson of Moorhead, MN; grandmother, Joyce Allen of Milton, FL and cousin, Andrew J. S. Allen of Gainesville, Ga.
She is survived by her adoring parents, Brad Allen and Brenda Owen, in addition to stepfather Jimmy Owen; grandmother, Linda Halvorson of Moorhead, MN; grandfather, William ‘Bill’ Allen of Pensacola, FL; sisters, Lindsay Owen (Justin) Cooey, and Emily Owen (Taylor) Gray, all of Pensacola, FL; as well as numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews.
Please join us in her memory for a Memorial Service on Wednesday, July 8, 2020 at Family-Funeral & Cremation, 5627 North Davis Highway, Pensacola, FL 32503. Visitation will be from 2:00-3:00pm with service at 3:00pm.
