Ms Davis received an Order of Australia in 2002 for her contribution to the world of puppetry and for her tireless creative entertainment of young children.
She is survived by her sister Jayne Davis, from Lakefront Retirement Village, Toukley.
The two sisters both worked for Channel 9 and travelled throughout Australia with their extensive stable of puppets.
They donated most of the puppets, personal papers and memorabilia to the archives committee, including Ms Davis’s OAM medal.
Ms Davis conceived, made, voiced and operated Amanda the Cat, which appeared on television in the early years of television broadcasting in Australia.
From 1957 Amanda the Cat performed on the program Desmond and the Channel Ninepins, made at Nine’s Willoughby studios.
The cat went on to appear in several shows in the days of live television.
After television, Ms Davis and Amanda performed at shopping centres, outdoor venues, playgroups, pre-schools and kindergartens.
Ms Davis’ funeral was held at the Mackay Family Crematorium Palmdale on Thursday.
