Loghry, Norma Sackett Davy, 94, of Tucson, Arizona left her family and friends shortly after midnight September 21, 1999. She was born to Gertrude Electa Sackett Davy and Will J Davy October 6, 1904 in Bergen, Genesee County, New York. She remembered good times on the farm of her grandparents Albert Henry and Ida May Snyder Sackett in Fancher, NY, happy hours in the Bergen carriage shop, livery stable and blacksmith shop operated by her father and grandfather John W. J. Davy (grandmother Anna Bella Gordon), horse drawn sleigh rides with jingle bell harness and buggy rides with Dad, while he was Highway Supervisor on the Tonawanda Seneca Indian Reservation. She said recently, "We had fun." She graduated from the Rochester Institute of Technology in 1926. She lived in Plainfield, New Jersey and taught home economics in several schools (1926-1933). In 1928 she visited California, traveling by steamship through the Panama Canal. On August 15, 1931 she married Clarence K. "Pic" Loghry and the newlyweds moved to New York City, while she commuted to Plainfield by ferry across the Hudson River. They moved to Westchester County, living in Mount Vernon, New Rochelle, and White Plains, NY. After Pic's retirement from the New York Telephone Company in 1965, they moved to Boca Raton, Florida, where they spent 14 happy years until Pic died unexpectedly on June 1, 1979. In 1984 she moved to Tucson, the Flower Square Apartments (now the Oasis Apartments). In October, 1998, she contracted pneumonia, enduring two hospital stays. She was no longer able to live alone and moved to the Desert Gardens Clinical Care Center. We are very grateful for the care and consideration given to her by the caregivers at Desert Gardens and her Oasis friends. She is survived by her sons James D. Loghry (Margaret R Lascelle) of Tucson and John S. Loghry of Bronxville, NY and grandchildren Michael Andrew Loghry, Elizabeth Lascelle Matthias-Loghry (Bryan W.), J. Douglas L. Loghry of Tucson and Lisa Ann Loghry of Yonkers, NY; former daughter-in-law Barbara L. Whyte, Debra Barnard Matthews (William James) and children Chelsea and Billy of Yorktown, NY, Susan Barnard Morelein (Andrew), and children Alex and Drew of Bow, New Hampshire and Gregory Barnard (Ann) and sons Ian and Evan of Kendallville, Indiana. A modest and unassuming woman, she never realized how many people she influenced in a positive way. Norma insisted there be no memorial service.
