Louise Davis, age 85, a servant of God, was called to be with her Lord on May 14, 2020. She was born to Everett and Eleanor Brixey of Cravens, Oklahoma on August 27, 1934. She was the oldest of three children and graduated high school at Panola, Oklahoma (Latimer County).
Bill Davis (her husband) found his way to Catoosa (1957) early in his teaching and coaching career. Soon after arriving, Bill and Louise were married on March 8, 1958. She supported him and went to every ball game and weekend fishing trip. Dana and Tammy were born in 1964 and 1968, respectively, while Bill was coaching. He also taught History, drove a school bus, and supported Louise after retiring from coaching. Louise worked at various places in Catoosa such as the Dairyette and Toles Grocery Store, and ultimately found her way to a long term of service at Catoosa Public Schools. She served as Director of Concessions while driving a school bus every day. Today, the Davis Sports Complex is named in honor and recognition for Bill and Louise Davis, for their long time dedicated service to Catoosa Public Schools and the Athletic program. Louise loved working with the young people at school.
Louise was a long time member of the Rolling Hills Baptist Church in Catoosa, now known as Good News Church. She was faithful in teaching Sunday school classes, helping with vacation bible school, and attending many church activities. She was definitely known for her Coconut Cream Pie at church auctions to raise money for the kids or a mission work abroad.
Louise was preceded in death by her loving and devoted husband Bill, and her parents Everett and Eleanor Brixey. She is survived by her daughters Dana Harp of Sulphur Springs, Texas (her husband Randy), and Tammy as well as her grandchildren: grandson, Darin Peters of El Reno, OK (his wife Mackenzie), and great grandson Dash Peters; granddaughter Jessica Anderson of Edmond, OK (her husband Chase), and great grandchildren Kamryn and Kendall McGaugh and Jack Anderson; and grandson Logan Harp of Shawnee, OK, and great grandson Zachary Harp. Louise is also survived by her brother Jim Brixey (his wife Minerva) of Coalinga, California, and Peggy Hilburn (her husband Larry) of Yuma, Arizona; nieces and nephews, many friends and church brothers and sisters.
