STUMPFF FUNERAL HOME
BARTLESVILLE, WASHINGTON CO, OK
Dora Faye (Hickinbotham) Davis, long-time Nowata resident,
left this life to meet her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ early Friday morning,
She was born on Jan. 21, 1930 at Melrose, KS, to Roy Washington Hickinbotham and Mona Belle Kelley Hickinbotham. She was reared in rural Barnsdall and attended school there also. She was married to Claude L. Davis on May 22, 1946 and they lived for eight years in Barnsdall. Five children were born in Barnsdall while living there; Claude L. Davis Jr., Linda F. Davis, Peggy L. Davis AND Patsy a. Davis (twins) and William R. Davis. They moved to Skiatook and began a dairy and farming. While living there, one more child was born; Timothy A. Davis. They moved to Nowata in 1961 and continued with a dairy called Sleepy Valley Dairy where they milked 100 cows twice a day. She worked right alongside her husband and taught her work ethic to all her children. They retired from the dairy and farming in 1972 and built their dream house on Oologah Lake in 1973.
A devoted and loving wife, mother and grandmother, Dora was a long-time member of the First Baptist Church of Nowata. She enjoyed her family so much and enjoyed sharing her cooking expertise with all her daughters. She also took all her children to church and taught them about the Lord by example. She will be truly missed by each of her family every day because all six of her children live within five miles of her home. She taught us the definition of a Godly marriage by being married to our Dad 62 years before he passed in 2009. She was wearing his wedding ring when she passed Friday morning, February 8.
Survivors include three sons, Claude Jr. and wife Linda and William (Bill) and wife Kay of Nowata and Timothy (Allen) of the home and three daughters, Linda (Davis) Rush and husband Lonnie, Peggy (Davis) Calvert and husband Joe, Patsy (Davis) Knight and husband John all of Nowata, 16 grandchildren, 40 great grandchildren and 10 great great grandchildren and numerous nieces and nephews and a brother-in-law, John Hudson of Ft. Smith, Arkansas.
Interment will be in the private Claude L. Davis cemetery located southeast of Nowata on Oologah Lake under the direction of the Stumpff-Nowata Funeral Home.
In lieu of flowers the family suggests donations to the ministry of the First Baptist Church of Nowata who she faithfully supported throughout her life.
