Barbara Rae Davis, 82, longtime Dewey resident, achieved her independence from her earthly bonds Wednesday morning July 4th.
Barbara was born July 22, 1929, near Dewey, to Joseph and Cina Haugh. Her family moved to Texas for a short while before returning to Dewey.
Barbara attended Dewey High and during her senior year, she was the Basketball Queen while her high school sweetheart Bernard Trent (BT) Andy Davis was the basketball captain. They graduated together in 1948. Andy joined the military and served in Korea. When he returned, they were united in marriage on April 4, 1953.
Barbara began her career at the First National Bank of Dewey, then Westar. She was a teller and rose to become head cashier before retiring in 1978 after 30 years of service.
She also was active in the community, volunteering her time and talents at church, as well as for Indian taco dinners and the wild onion dinners. She was a member of the Dewey VFW Post #10099 Women's Auxiliary and ran the VFW bingo concession stand. Barbara enjoyed quilting and often donated her handiwork to raise funds for charity. She will be greatly missed by friends and family.
Barbara is survived by her two sons David Davis of Dewey, and John and Catherine Davis of Copan; two sisters Madolyn June Mull of Copan, and Beverly Booth of Dewey; four grandchildren: Debra (Davis) Hanmer, Lacey Dion Davis, Justin Trent Davis, and Alannah Mae Davis; and one great-grandchild Brayden Austin Harris. Barbara was preceded in death by her husband of 56 years in 2009, and her parents.
