Norma Rene Davis (Seely), 91, passed away peacefully on Friday, May 10, 2024 in her home in San Angelo.

Private interment will be in Andrews, Texas under the direction of Robert Massie Funeral Home.

Mrs. Davis was born and raised in the small farming community of O’Donnell. She attended the Joe Bailey School and then in the O’Donnell school until she graduated from high school.

Shortly after that, she married Larron Davis. Their first child, Edward was born in 1952, while Larron was serving in the Army in Korea. After his return, Larron was employed by the Halliburton Company and moved to Midland. Over the next several years that job took them to Odessa, Rankin, Monahans, and Kermit. During this time their second child, Julia, was born in 1955. When the family was transferred to Andrews, they put down roots until their children graduated from high school.

While living in Andrews, the family owned and operated the Davis Horse Stables at the old rodeo grounds in McKinney Acres. Both Larron and Norma were involved in 4-H leadership and activities while their children were growing up. Norma was employed at the Kirby Vacuum Cleaner factory after it came to Andrews, until she and Larron went overseas.

At that time Larron went to work for Dowell Schlumberger as a lead service engineer and he and Norma moved to Southeast Asia. That job took them to Djakarta, Sumatra, Borneo, Burma, Tiawan, and then on to France and later to Scottland.

After Larron retired they moved to Cleburne and then to Sweetwater where they owned a window and door business until Larron’s death in 2000. Norma moved to Rio Concho West Senior Living Community in San Angelo, where she lived until her passing.

Norma had a very exciting life and collected antiques from places all over the world. She traveled extensively during their time overseas. She was an accomplished artist and painted mostly in water colors.

She and Larron were members of the Church of Christ in all the places they lived. Growing up in World War II had a profound effect on Norma. She was deeply patriotic and studied history and followed politics avidly.

Norma is survived by her son and daughterin- law, Edward and Jan Davis of Salt Flat; and her daughter, Julia Taylor of San Angelo; and her one and only granddaughter and her husband, Lacy Davis and Marty Mendes of Carlsband, New Mexico.
