Ora Mae Medlin Davis
Ora Mae Medlin Davis, of Kermit, 104, went home Saturday, August 21, 2010.  The daughter and granddaughter of West Texas pioneers, she was born on June 22, 1906 in Stanton, TX to J. H. and Bessie Jones Medlin.   In 1917, the Medlin family homesteaded land in New Mexico near Ochoa, west of Jal.  Ora Mae went to the one-room school and after obtaining her teaching certificate, returned to Ochoa and taught there for two years.  Then she was sent to the White School on the Drinkard Ranch south of Eunice.  The next year, she re-opened the Jal School and taught there until she married George Edward Davis in 1930. 

She was a talented oil painter; learning old world techniques from Miss Flora Farnsworth, an English expatriate who had come to the rootin’ tootin’ boomtown of Jal for the dry climate.  We think she could have had a good reputation as a regional painter had she continued after the 40’s.  

She lived a good, long life.  We will miss her and never forget her.

Davis of Texas; son:  Glenn G. Davis of Connecticut; daughter-in-law:  Charlotte Davis; seven grandchildren:  Georgia Ann and husband Lloyd Griffith, Terry Lynn and husband Terry Holt, Donna Hammack, Clay Davis, Andrew Davis, Dr. Jonathan Davis, and Susanne and husband Michael Garza; ten great-grandchildren:  Terra, Tanya, Tami, Jennifer, Sonny, James, Daniel, Candice, Michelle, and Kyle; and nine great-great grandchildren.    

She was the last of her generation and was predeceased by her siblings: Ruth Marion, Beulah Baird, J.H. Medlin, Elbert Medlin and Annis B. Hollis, and cousin:  Jo Dorsey.  Her husband of almost 63 years, George Davis, also precedes her in death. 

Funeral services will be at First United Methodist Church at 10:00 am Wednesday, August 25, 2010, officiated by Rev. Rod Peacock and assisted by Rev. John Wade. Interment will follow at Kermit Cemetery.  Arrangements are entrusted to Family Services Funeral Parlor of Kermit.
