Obituary for Laura Lee Whitaker

Laura Lee Whitaker (nee Davisson) passed away on July 22, 2021.

She is survived by her life partner (together 14 years) and caregiver (eight years) Charles Stoner; her son Derrick (Shelly) Whitaker; and her grandsons Gage and Alexander Whitaker.

She is also survived by her mother, Mary Ellen Davisson and her sisters Kathy Davisson Kihata, Mary Ann (Marty) Powers and Cindy (Chris) Bozied. She is further survived by her nieces and nephews Justin (Laura) Powers, Jacob (Chelsea) Powers, Chantel Norris, Jenna (Laurisa) Bozied and Noah Kihata. In addition, she is survived by great nieces and nephews Elizabeth, John and Jessica Powers and Drayk and Nelli Norris.

Laura Lee was preceded in death by her father Randy Davisson, her sister Julie Davisson, her great niece Faith Powers and her cousin April Melzer.

She graduated from Oxford High School in 1982. She continued to play volleyball and went to a tournament in Chicago as part of a four-person team. To the delight of all, but not a surprise, Laura Lee and her teammates won the championship.

Laura Lee, a life-long resident of Oxford, owned her own hair salon behind Patterson Pharmacy for 23 years. She and Charlie also hosted karaoke nights at the American Legion for many years. She released a CD of songs, “Finally”, which can be listened to on Youtube (google Laura Lee Styles) as well as a Youtube video of her song, “Proud but Afraid.” Google Laura Lee Styles Proud but Afraid.

Laura Lee shone a light upon the world and was a friend to all. Her laughter was infectious and her beautiful voice filled our hearts. We will miss her more than words can say.

A Celebration of Life for both Laura and her father Randy Davisson will take place at the Oxford American Legion; 130 E Drahner Rd, Oxford, MI 48371 on Saturday, August 28, 2021 at 1:00 PM.
