Sadie Elizabeth Davila passed away on January 6, 2023. Our loving, vivacious and kind girl was only 7 years old. She was born July 23, 2015, in Baton Rouge, Louisiana to Michael Israel Davila, II and Monique Keh Poirier.
Sadie was in first grade at Woodlawn Elementary School and attended church with her family at Riverbend Baptist Church. She was loved by her teachers and friends alike. The teachers always knew they could go to Sadie any time they needed an extra hand. Her friends always looked to her, as she was the constant nurturer – even known to give her candy to others during annual trick-or-treat festivities, rarely keeping any for herself. That was just Sadie, forever taking care of others. She was always the center of attention, anywhere she went – whether she was singing “Old Town Road”, “Bohemian Rhapsody”, “Jolene” or every song ever written by Katy Perry, you would not only hear her coming, you would see her too – as she loved to dance!
Sadie was a girl’s girl. She loved anything Disney princess, unicorns, rainbows and makeup. It wasn’t unusual to see ‘Princess Sadie’ with a tiara on her head. She was our Elsa! Sadie loved to make videos and was destined to be an online influencer with all the creativity she possessed. Sadie enjoyed drawing, DIY projects, swinging and taking her babies for a ride on the bike she received for Christmas. She would never pass up an opportunity to eat macaroni and cheese, or as she said ‘mac-a-noni’, ice cream, candy or her favorite meal served on ‘Taco Tuesday’.
In all of this, she was also an old soul. Sadie was strong, competent and a support to her family, often even having to remind them that ‘you’re the adult, I’m the child’. It was as if she lived a million lives in her short time here with us. We will forever be blessed with the time we had, it would have never been long enough. We love you more than words can say Sadie Elizabeth.
She is preceded in death by her loving mother, Monique Keh Poirier; her paternal grandfather Robin Poirier; her aunt Teresa ‘Terry’ Anselmo; her maternal great-grandfather Russell Anselmo; and paternal great-grandmother, Edith Davila. Sadie is survived by her devoted father, Michael Israel ‘Mikey’ Davila, II; her beloved brother Kayden Michael Poirier; her paternal grandmother Christy Anselmo; her maternal grandparents Suzi and Kevin Brown; her maternal grandfather Shane Laird; her paternal grandfather Michael Israel Davila; her maternal great-grandfather Richard Laird and her paternal great-grandparents Joy Anselmo and Ed Seay; and her paternal great-grandfather, Israel Joseph Davila. She is also survived by her uncles: Wesley Brown and wife Deryn, Preston Poirier and wife Heather, Dusty Anselmo and husband, Jason Spinner, Michael Laird and Joseph, Brandon and Jason Davila; her aunts: Andi Talbot and husband Tustin, Christy Brown, Tracy Ashley and husband Randy, Haley Anselmo, Terry Ashley and Rosa, Lydia, Jaina, Bella and Jackie Davila; as well as countless cousins, family and friends.
Private services were held for Sadie. The family asks that in the days, weeks and months to come when you wear pink – please think of our precious Sadie Elizabeth Davila, as that was her favorite color.
A foundation is being set up in the future and will be published either on the funeral home site or through social media.
