    SULLIVAN - E. Izola Fitzgerald Davis, 90, of Sullivan departed her life on earth to rejoin her husband, Harold F. Fitzgerald, who left us on January 14, 1985. Izola was born in Findlay, on May 13, 1918, the daughter of Ester Scroggins, farmer, and Margaret Ringo Scroggins, homemaker. She was raised in Bethany, graduated from Bethany High School, and married the love of her life, Harold Fitzgerald, on November 28, 1939. In 1940, Harold and Izola began the business of Fitzgerald Insurance Agency, located in Bethany, and ran the business as co-owners for many years, before passing the reins over to their son and grandson. Their business remains family owned and operated. Izola was an avid bridge player for over 75 years. In addition, she enjoyed her family, cooking, fishing, dancing, listening to Lawrence Welk, and playing golf. Her meaning in life came from helping to raise her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. In 1990, very soon after the birth of her first great-grandchild, Izola married Horace "Hice" Davis, in Sullivan, where they lived together until his death. Her family will always remember her famous apple pies and chocolate cakes, her comfortable lap and warm embrace, and her tirelessness in playing cards and Scrabble with her grandchildren. Left behind with these memories are her sister, Valria Candage, her daughter and best friend, Imogene Fitzgerald, her son and daughter-in-law, Jim and Marilyn Fitzgerald, her grandchildren, Mike and Gina Fitzgerald, Michelle and Ray Preiksaitis, and Margaret and Mark Dieringer, and her precious great-grandchildren, Ken Preiksaitis, Kristy and Christopher Stewart, Joe Wheeler, Sean and Wesley Robinson, and Anna, Grant and Reid Dieringer. A private burial will be held for immediate family, as per the wishes of Izola. She will be buried next to her husband, Harold Fitzgerald, in the family plot at St. Isidore's Cemetery, Bethany. Memorials, in lieu of flowers, can be made to the donor's choice. McMullin-Young Funeral Home, Sullivan is in charge of arrangements. Condolences may be made to the family at She is preceded in death by her two brothers, Dalace and Don. Obituary written by family members. Online guest book at
