Alain K. Davis

Alain K. Davis, a passionate mother and wife, caring, loving, supportive and fiercely loyal, left us on Thursday, January 26, 2023.  The beloved wife and partner of Colin Davis II and mother of Blake Duane, Marleigh Alain and her unofficial son, William Moore, departed this world and left us in pain and shock to mourn and ask why.
The daughter of Larry and Kay Serven, Alain was born in Battle Creek, Michigan on November 8, 1976.  She leaves behind her sister and brother-in-law, Kristina and Christopher Langmaack; nephew, Cameron and his wife, Skyler Langmaack; niece, Kirsten Langmaack with her partner, Martin Fabrik; as well as her father and mother-in-law, Colin and Nancy Davis; sister-in-law, Angela Joslyn; her extended family of aunts, uncles and cousins plus her dog and sidekick, Ruger.
Those left behind are struggling to understand this sudden and tragic loss, but all recognize she truly was one of the good ones. Ever fearless, she was up for whatever activities that included her husband and kids, family, and of course her friends.  For Alain everyone was her friend, and she would lead, guide and persuade everyone to join in. If in doubt, she could be very clear on everyone’s role and her expectations of them.  She was well known for her parties and made sure everyone’s birthday was their special holiday.  Her birthday was a day to celebrate as her dad always made her favorite meal – fried bologna and homemade french fries.  Everyone enjoyed her New Year’s parties with games- even if they had to put their faces in whipped cream to find the bubble gum then be the first to blow a bubble and whomever got the honor of shooting her grandpa’s gun at midnight! Her seafood boils were a favorite, where she would prepare the food and she and Colin would spill it out on a long table for everyone to enjoy.  She made sure her family was celebrated and knew how much she loved them on Valentine’s, St. Patrick’s Day, Easter, Memorial Day, 4th of July at Silver Lake Dunes, and every other holiday of the year. She was particularly angry though that her “Black Friday” and 24 hours (or more) of straight Christmas shopping with her sister Kris and others was ruined by stores closing and the economy. Yes, she did take that personally as that was one of her pleasures and she wanted to continue that tradition. Traditions were very important to her.  If you were fortunate enough to have her in your life you know what a void, she leaves behind. For her family, especially Colin and the kids along with special friends, Steve and Kaci, Cam and Amanda, BJ and Katie, Mike and Mallory, Chad, Scot, Chuckie and Jason and so many more, every day was better with her in it.  She loved you all with a passion that only Alain could share.  To say she embraced life fully doesn’t say it all and we know her greatest regret is leaving Colin, Blake, Marleigh and William whom she loved so deeply. Everything she did she poured her entire self into, and she worked hard so that each one around her would know how much she loved them; her foremost thought was to be sure that her family was on the right path.  It would be her expectation that everyone continues that work for her.  Col is devastated but with the love, support and help of family and their many friends, he will continue her work.
Soar high Lanie, we know you are watching over us!
