Patsy Carol Davis was born on April 12, 1937

in Blaine County, Oklahoma to Lester and Opal

(Owens) Fee and passed away on June 17, 2020

at the age of 83 in Hydro, Oklahoma. She was a

lifetime resident of the Watonga area and graduated

from Watonga High School. She held various

jobs throughout her life such as waitressing,

heat set operator at Hollytex, and her last job

was as a lunchroom cook at Watonga

Elementary School.

Patsy married Dewey Halverson on

September 18, 1954 her senior year of high

school. Dewey and Patsy divorced in November

of 1968. Patsy later married James S. Davis in

September of 1977 and added another daughter

and son to her family.

In 2011 she added another member to her

family- “Bear.” Bear was carved by Jim Sinclair

out of an old tree that had been damaged by hurricane

Aaron. Later, she decided to wish Donnie

happy birthday and posted a sign on the bear- its

life of announcing community events, seasons,

and holidays had begun!

She was an active member of the Watonga

Christian Church helping in many capacities

throughout the years. One of the most recent was

The Ladies on Their Own group. She as a member

of the Friends of The Library, Friends of

Roman Nose, Friends of the Ferguson Museum,

a HEC member, Cheyenne Quilting Guild and

several other quilt clubs, She chaired the local

blood drives; was a certified Blaine County

Reserve Officer, made and donated Quilts of

Honor to area veterans, and numerous other volunteer

works in the community. One year, she

was honored with the Chamber of Commerce

“Volunteer of the Year Award.” Patsy was excellent

at recruiting volunteers for various projects,

you come to visit- you are drafted!

Patsy had always wanted to go on a mission

trip. When Church Growth Ministries went to

Copeland, KS to add onto their church, she took

the opportunity. Since construction wasn’t her

strong suit, she volunteered to head up the

kitchen for the week. She kept three meals a day,

snacks, and drinks ready for the entire week (as

well as providing cinnamon rolls throughout the

week!) She knew she hadn’t gone far but she

was proud that she had done a small mission trip.

She often put many of us younger ones to shame.

Patsy was proceeded in death by her parents,

Lester Fee and Opal Seedorf; her son, Danny;

her husband, James Davis; granddaughter, April

Teply; her great-granddaughter, Cassandra

Downey; her brother, Glen Fee; and step-sisters,
