Taylor Shae Davis


POLSON – On Aug. 17, 2015, Taylor Shae Davis, 18, of Polson, passed away. Her beautiful blue eyes and infectious smile will forever be held in our hearts.

She was born Dec. 19, 1996, to Dean Davis and Denise Amundson. She graduated from Polson High School in 2015. As early as 2 weeks old, she was in the gymnasium cheering on her Aunt Darci, brother Derek and sister Diana. Growing up she was involved in soccer, softball, volleyball and track. She had many friends that she always wanted to spend time with, making sure she could get them to laugh by making silly faces and with her sense of humor. She loved nature and enjoyed hiking and being at the lake with her dogs, Onyx, Koda, Sinbad and Lucy.

Friends would say she was very supportive and encouraging. She always made sure other people's happiness was a priority over her own and was always there for them if needed. Her great love for animals (horses especially) started at a very young age. This endless compassion and unconditional love carried through all aspects of her life.

She had a knack for always being right, or at least convincing you that she was. She stood up for herself and others when the situation arose or just being a voice of reason if needed. She would make sacrifices no matter the cost to herself if it meant helping someone else. It was amazing how much spunk, love and compassion fit into that little body.
