Coleen M. Weathers, the daughter of William and Mae (Duvall) Weathers was born June 24, 1943 on the family farm near Manson, Iowa.  She was raised and educated at Manson and in Minnesota and gradated from Manson High School.  She married Delbert Wendt and to this union, two children, Paul and Carmella, were born.  In September of 1972, she was united in marriage to Frank Davis and the couple had one child, Denny.

Coleen enjoyed bowling and was active on several bowling leagues for many years.  She enjoyed camping with her family and loved watching the wildlife in the yard of her home.  She especially loved the time she spent with all of her grandchildren.  She will always be remembered by her family and many friends for her contagious laugh and always putting others first.
