Roena Elizabeth Davis went to be with her Savior on July 25, 2008. She was born December 10, 1920, near Cassidy, Mo., to Fred and Mettie (Sims) Kerr. She grew up on the family farm and attended school at Maple Grove School and later at Ozark School, where she graduated as Valedictorian of the Class of 1938. She attended one year of college at Southwest Missouri State Teachers College. She worked at several local businesses in the Ozark area, prior to meeting and marrying Wilbur L. Davis on December 7, 1945. To this union were born three children, Wanda, Gayle, and Marilyn. She found Christ as her savior at the age of 10, and was a lifelong member of Cassidy Methodist Church however, she attended church with her children at Mentor Baptist Church for the last 28 years of her life. She always remembered and would tell anyone of her experience with the Lord and her baptism in the creek in the winter. She was preceded in death by her parents; one infant sister, Elena Ruth; and her husband. She is survived by her children, Wanda and Don Steele of Kansas City, Mo., Gayle and Diane Davis of Rogersville, Mo., and Marilyn Kelley of Ozark, Mo.; two brothers, Lanford and Doris Kerr of Marionville, Mo. and Stanley and Mary Kerr of Branson, Mo.; four grandchildren, Sarah and Daryl Steele of Kansas City, Mo., Rebecca Barrett of Sugar Grove, W.V., and Christopher Kelley of Ozark, Mo.; one great-granddaughter, Emily Elena Barrett; and a host of other relatives and friends. Her sense of humor, caring for others, and her ready smile will be greatly missed by all who knew her. She was a great mother and grandmother and was always concerned about the well being of her children and grandchildren. A funeral service will be held at 2 p.m. Monday, in Adams Funeral Home, Ozark, with Dick Bishop and Jim Robbins officiating. Burial will follow in Selmore Cemetery. Visitation will be from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Sunday, in the funeral home.
