Mary Francine Davis Ney
September 5, 1947 – June 14, 2019
Mary Francine Davis Ney, 71 of Metairie went home to her savior on Friday, June 14, 2019. Mary was born in Houston, Texas on September 5, 1947 and moved to New Orleans when she was 8 years old. Mary graduated from Warren Easton High School in New Orleans, New Orleans Barber and Beauty College, and received a Bachelor of Science Degree in Nursing from Louisiana State University of Nursing. She was a talented hair dresser who worked at The Chatta Box in New Orleans/Metairie and then at her home for many years making all her customers beautiful on the outside. After graduating from nursing school she went on to have a successful career as a 3 East and ICU nurse at East Jefferson General Hospital in Metairie. She touched many lives professionally and personally as a nurse during that time. Besides her family, her other passion in her life was being a Girl Scout leader for many years. She impacted many young girls lives as a mentor to them during those years. Watching her three girls and her grandchildren succeed in life were her proudest moments. One of her favorite things to do was watch her grandkids play sports and of course LSU Baseball.
The family would like to thank East Jefferson Oncology Unit and Anvoi Hospice for their wonderful care of our mother during the last couple of months of her life. We are forever grateful.
A Visitation for Mary will be held at Leitz-Eagan Funeral Home, 4747 Veterans Memorial Blvd., Metairie, Louisiana on Monday, June 24, 2019 from 9:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. followed by a Funeral Mass starting at 11:00 a.m..

I am a nurse and was one of Mary"s coworkers in the ICU at EJGH. Mary was such a pleasure to work with . She had such a big heart. I never saw her angry. She talked so lovingly about Andrew, her beautiful children and grand babies all the time. She was so proud of all of you. I saw her a while back and of course she told me stories of her grand babies. I hope you all find comfort in the love she had in her heart for all of you. May all of your memories of your mom sustain you in this difficult time.

Mary was my daughter’s Girl Scout leader and later, my late husband’s ICU nurse. Great & caring in both capacities. Rest in peace.
