Little Falls - J. Keith Davy, age 87 years old, of 49 Jackson Street, Little Falls, New York passed away peacefully at home on Friday June 22, 2018.

Born August 7, 1930, to Wells Sponable Davy and Ruth Johnson Davy, he married Marion Davis of Dolgeville New York on July 19, 1952.

A graduate of Little Falls High school, and president of the class of 1948, Keith Davy graduated from Norwich University in 1952, served on active duty with the United States Army from 1952-1954, and then graduated with a master's in Public Administration from the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs at Syracuse University in 1954.

Keith's entire life was spent in public service of one form or another. Living in Maryland from 1956-1991, Keith worked for the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission (later Department of Energy).

She married Walter Simpson, her high school sweetheart, on Oct. 3, 1948. The Simpson's lived in Winslow, where Walter worked as a dairy farmer on Walter F. Simpson and Sons Farm.
The farm originated in 1893, and had been passed down to different generations. Faith helped on the farm and raised her three children. In the late 1960s, she was a substitute teacher in the Winslow school district, until starting her own nursery school - called Country Day Nursery School - in the early 1970s. She taught at the nursery school for 12 years.
Faith loved to entertain and host gatherings. When she wasn't working on the farm, she was in the kitchen cooking wonderful meals. She loved having guests over for dinner parties and barbecues, or just getting together. She also enjoyed knitting, sewing, beach outings, gardening, antiquing, and most of all, spending time with her family.
She was an active and dedicated member of the Second Baptist Church in Waterville for many years, and loved serving the Lord. She was a kind, generous, thoughtful, witty individual, who loved her family and the Lord. She often volunteered at Thayer Hospital making dolls and hats for babies.
Ms. Simpson is survived by her daughter and son-in-law, Pamela and Richard Greene, of Shapleigh; her daughter, Deborah Bowden, of Claremore, Okla.; her son and daughter-in-law, David and Susan Simpson, of Kennebunk; three grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.
She was predeceased by her husband, Walter; her brothers, Russell and Richard Jose; and her long-time companion, Alex Turbyne.
A celebration of life ceremony is scheduled for 10 a.m., May 19, 2018, at the Pine Grove Cemetery, in Waterville.
Pastor Steve Rogers will officiate the ceremony. All are welcome to attend and celebrate Faith's life.

In lieu of flowers, please send donations to:
