Lenore Coburn Davis Mott

1938 ~ 2023

On February 9, 2023, our beautiful mother returned to her Heavenly Father after a long battle with Alzheimer’s. Lenore was Born August 24, 1938, to Cecil and Alice Coburn in Treasureton, Idaho. Lenore was the 3rd of their 11th children; raised in Preston, Idaho, and graduated from Preston High. On June 22, 1956, she married Demar R. Davis in the Logan temple and together they had five wonderful children, Gregg (Janis), Brad (Tammy), Lisa (Dirk), Robin (Rich), and Julie. They were later divorced. Lenore married Theral J Mott in 1988 and made their home in Cottonwood Heights. They later became snowbirds in Beaver Dam, Arizona.

Lenore had a successful career at USWEST for over 30 years, where she made many lifelong friends. She started as a switchboard operator working her way up as a Business Office Supervisor. She was a hard-working smart savvy businesswoman who was loved by many coworkers.

Lenore was a loving Mother who taught her children to be kind and the meaning of hard work. She enjoyed crocheting, scrapbooking, sewing, quilting, tole painting, camping, gardening, traveling, and playing cards. When it came to playing cards, Lenore was fiercely competitive. Lenore was a faithful member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in which she served in many callings including serving in the humanitarian center.

She is survived by 4 children, 3 stepchildren, 18 grandchildren, 28 great-grandchildren, and 6 siblings. We know Lenore is having a joyous reunion with her parents, husband, and daughter, Lisa, along with four siblings.

We would like to give a special thanks to the staff at Carrington Court and the hospice staff who helped us take care of her so lovingly.

Memorial Funeral Services will be held at Larkin Sunset Gardens at 1950 E. 10600 S. in Sandy, Utah on Friday, February 17th at 11 AM. There will be a viewing on the same day from 9:30 to 10:30 AM. Interment will be in the Preston cemetery.


I have known Lenore for over fifty years. We lived in the same neighborhood and raised our kids together. We went on many camp outs, cookouts and did many other activities as family's. After retirement we had many fun times in Beaver Dam Az. with her and T. J. She was a beautiful person both inside and out. Both myself and both of my wife's just loved her. Our condolences to your family.

Gregg, Brad, Robin and Julie; Lynn and I send our love and condolences to each of you in the passing of you mother. She has been a friend for so many years. We even reconnected down in Beaver Dam. She made the best pecan pies.
Remember living up the street from us right by the church? We hope you find many good memories in the love she had for each of you.
Love of family is Eternal. Bless you all at this time.

To the Davis-Mott family, may our Father in Heaven comfort your heart with peace at this time in your lives. Aunt Lenore will be missed a lot, she was always a classy lady and I always enjoyed seeing her and being around her may she be at peace and enjoy being reunited with her family members and parents in heaven.

I enjoyed taking care of Lenore in her short time at WhisperCove. On Sundays, she dressed to perfection and never missed her chance to put on some red lipstick. May you all find comfort during this time.
