Lucille Davis Obituary

Lucille Davis, beloved wife, mother, grandmother, and proud Oklahoma centenarian was called Home to Heaven on February 6, 2024, just a little over six months after her 100th birthday. She was born Wilma Lucille Dobbs on July 17, 1923, to Florence (Hallford) Dobbs and Otto Dobbs.

Lucille cultivated a rich and diverse range of interests throughout her lifetime. She took great pleasure in cooking, delighting in preparing delicious meals for her family. Lucille 's culinary skills were perfected over many years, and from frying the perfect chicken, to making entire Thanksgiving dinners from start to finish, she could do it all.

A proper lady through and through, Lucille was always sure to look her best. She was not only meticulous about her own presentation – she personally cut and styled her husband’s hair and ensured that her daughters’ outfits were changed three times per day while they were growing up. Faith and family were everything to Wilma. Due to her husband Baxter being a Deacon, Lucille spent much of her time at church, with her faith remaining deep and strong through the ebbs and flows of her life. She was a longtime member of the Garden Club in Okemah and loved growing and tending to her roses. She also volunteered her time to help with the USO dances, and she loved to sew and crochet.

One of her favorite pastimes was watching the OKC Thunder, who she affectionately referred to as “my boys”. Wilma never missed a game and loved watching her boys play ball. On her 100th birthday, she was delighted to receive a special visit from mascot Rumble, who gifted the brand-new centenarian her own basketball and tons of Thunder swag.

As we reflect on the life of Lucille Davis, let us remember her for the beautiful moments she shared, the love she showered upon her family, and her unwavering commitment to the things that brought her joy. Her legacy lives on through the recipes she perfected and the memories she created. Lucille will forever remain in our hearts as a beacon of light, reminding us to savor each day and find delight in the simple pleasures that bring us together. 

She is preceded in death by her parents, Otto and Florence Dobbs, her husband, Baxter Davis, two daughters, Connie Tollison, and Karen Langford, son-in-law Gilbert Langford, her brother, Wayne, and sisters Norma Jean, and Cathleen.

Left to treasure her memory are four grandchildren, Kim Newman and husband Steve, Kelli Selby and husband Carl, Kenny Tollison and his wife Gina, and Lori Langford; and her son-in-law, Kenneth Tollison. Lucille is also survived by 7 great-grandchildren, 6 great-great-grandchildren, and many nieces, nephews, extended family, and friends.
