Ranger Exes Memorial - RHS Class of 1952

Betty Jean Maddux Davis BETTY JEAN MADDUX DAVIS, 78, of Denison, TX, departed this world on Oct. 24, 2012. Jean was born Nov. 5, 1933 to Stayton and Lula Maddux in Ranger, TX. She attended Ranger High School in the Class of 1952. Jean was married to her true love, R.B. Davis, in August of 1950 and they made their home in various towns in Oklahoma and Texas before settling in Denison in 1960. Everyone who knew Jean knew that she put others before herself and God above all. She was a humble and inspiring woman whose faith never wavered and her mission field was anywhere she happened to be. She offered her advice to anyone that wanted it and offered her heart and home to anyone who needed it. She was privileged to have the opportunity to do mission work in Romania and Japan, and spent seven years serving at the Texarkana Baptist Orphanage. She was faithful her entire life in church and was a member of Mt. Pleasant Missionary Baptist Church. She loved her family and friends with all her heart and never met a person she couldn't love or didn't try to help. Her grandchildren and great-grandchildren were a delight to her and they loved being at her home. The best food, hugs, back-scratches, and fun times were at Gramm Camp. Jean was preceded in death by her parents, husband, and three brothers including Robert "Bob" Maddux (RHS-1956) and survived by her sister, Mary Carter (RHS-1959), and brother, Wayne Maddux. She is survived by daughter, Tawana Crawford and her husband Bud of New Castle, VA, Ricky Davis and his wife Roni of Denison, and Sherri Lamar and her husband Kenny of Pottsboro; and by grandchildren, Nicole Donihoo, Crystal Roberts, Cliff Davis, Carla Davis, Danielle Lamar; and great-grandchildren, Kennedy, Madison, Tyson, Kaymann, Caiden, and Jackson.
