Ms. Leslie M. Davis-Zubiate

Born Into Time: August 11, 1958
Born Into Eternity: August 19, 2017

Leslie Davis-Zubiate was born on August 11, 1958 to Betty (Powell) Davis and Larry Davis in Milwaukee WI. Leslie moved to Chicago with her mom in 1965 and attended Murray Language Academy School. In 1967, Betty married Philip Rummel who had a daughter Marsha and a new family was formed that has endured until this day. Leslie attended Harvard St. George School and graduated from St. Thomas Aquinas High School. Leslie attended Hampshire College in Connecticut for a year. 

Leslie worked in Retail and Real Estate in Chicago after college. Eventually she moved to St. Paul MN and worked for the State of Minnesota. She moved back to Chicago in 2007. In October 2014, Leslie became one of her mom's primary caregivers after Betty underwent surgery and helped her every day for the next several years. In January 2016, Leslie suffered from a serious fall that disabled her and required skilled care. She lived in a skilled care facility until her death, assisted by a dedicated, professional group of CNA’s many who became quite dear to Leslie. The family expresses our gratitude for their service.

Leslie passed into eternity August 19, 2017 at Journey Care Hospice. She was a loving and devoted daughter and sister. She loved shopping, reading, live music and her extended family and friends.

Leslie is survived by her mother Betty Rummel, stepfather Philip Rummel, stepsister Marsha, her two half-sisters, Scarlett Finney and Alexis Davis and her beloved McIntosh cousins Phillip, Rodney, Ken and Valerie and many friends.

Come Ye Disconsolate... .Earth has no sorrow that Heaven cannot heal....If you can have it, God can heal it. If there's a void, God can fill it..... In this sorrowful time, i would like to extend to you my heartfelt condolences. May our Lord comfort the Rummel Family and your loved ones.

Dear family,
May you find comfort in Jehovah's promise to mankind that our enemy death is to be brought to nothing, as well as the distresses associated with death will be no more. They will be a thing of the past.
1 Cor 15:26, Rev 21:4
