Wilson, OK — Services for Bettie Joe Davis, 77, are scheduled for 11 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 20, 2008, in First United Methodist Church with the Rev. Sherry Kendrick officiating. Interment will follow at Bomar Point Cemetery. The Alexander Funeral Home in Wilson is in charge of arrangements.
Bettie was born June 30, 1931, to the late Richard Alva Mayes and Martha Mae (Henson) Mayes in Wilson. She passed away Sept. 17, 2008, at her home in Wilson.
Bettie spent her childhood years in Sulphur, and attended a private Catholic School in Edmond before attending Wilson High School. She and Wesley Gilbert "Bub" Davis were married Aug. 12, 1948, in Gainesville, Texas, and were married 50 years before Bub's death in February 1999.
Bettie was an active member of the Wilson Homemakers Association and the United Methodist Church in which she served in various capacities. She was employed as a community worker for the Carter County Health Department from August 1971 until her retirement in January 1996.
Bettie had a strong passion to beautify Wilson in many ways by working with the Wilson Community Park, City Council, as well as maintaining the Wilson Public Library landscaping for many years.
The Davis home and gardens on Highway 76 were a beautiful haven for the residents of Wilson as well as anyone traveling down the highway. She received great pleasure in sharing her love of gardening with others through knowledge and sharing the fruits of her labor.
Preceding her in death were her parents, her husband, Bub; and three half-sisters Norma Becker, Marie Brauchie and Margie Ferguson.
Survivors include her three sons Steve, of Mead, Bruce and his partner, Wayne Palmer, of Dallas, Scott and his wife, Kasey, of Lone Grove; one daughter, Susan Gail Clayton, of Owasso; grandchildren, Wesley and Erin Davis, Harrison Clayton, of Tulsa, Natalie and Jared Davis, of Lone Grove; brothers-in-law Ray Davis, of Wilson, and Doyle Davis and his wife, Edie, of Wilson.
Pallbearers will be Gary Claxton, Gene Griffin, Don Buck, Jerry Mashore, Jim Cumpton and Harrison Clayton. Honorary pallbearers will be Ray Davis, Doyle Davis, Bill Mitchell and Carl Cumpton and Chicken Lynch.
Family visitation will be from 6-8 p.m. tonight in the funeral home in Wilson.
