Becky Ann Davis

September 26, 1939 ~ May 9, 2024

The birth of Becky Ann Stewart Davis, September 26, 1939, gave us a gracious, caring, loving person. She gave of herself in many ways.

Becky graduated from Central School and Lake Charles High School. She went to McNeese State College and graduated with a degree in Elementary Education. She taught at Fairview Elementary, met and married Gayle Davis and they moved to Beaumont, Texas with Gayle’s job for a few years before moving back to Lake Charles. Becky began her own school, Wee Wisdom Pre-School in 1976, which later became St. Luke Simpson Methodist Pre-School. Here she molded little ones, preparing them for first grade and life in general. She was always gentle and kind with the children, even when correcting their behavior. Becky always remembered her students’ names and their parents and loved hearing about their present lives. She and her family traveled extensively abroad and in the United States. In later years, Becky and Gayle had a goal to visit every Presidential Library in the United States, which they completed.

Becky belonged to First United Methodist Church, First Methodist Women, L’Argent Investment Club, Petroleum Wives Club, The Caring Ministry of FUMC, Open Door Sunday School class and LCHS Class of 1957 Lunch Group. She served as needed in all her activities. She was an avid reader and attended many religious studies classes, always prepared.

Those left to cherish her memory are her son, Stewart Davis; her daughter, Susan Colvin (Doug); her grandchildren, Kim Lyon (Bud), Nicholas Colvin (Loren) and Kassidy Colvin; her four great grandchildren, Dominic, Kooper, Bronson and Pierce Davis: and her sister Janice Fruge. Becky was preceded in death by her husband of 61 years, Gayle Norman Davis. Becky was also preceded in death by her parents, Jesse and Elsie Stewart, and her husband’s parents, Willie and Elsie Davis.

All events will be held at First United Methodist Church, located at 812 Kirkman St, Lake Charles, LA 70601. Visitation is planned on Thursday, May 16, 2024, beginning at 3:00 PM, and the service will begin at 4:00 PM.

A special thank you goes out to her friend, Fifi Martin, her caregivers, Judy Bellow and Beverly Granger and Pastors, Weldon Bares and Stephanie Pace.

Memories Timeline


  1. May the peace God cover Stewart and Susan during their time of grief and give them comfort in the days ahead.

  2. Mrs. Becky and Mr. Gayle were my grandparents’ next door neighbors on Dolby St. I have fond memories of them and their dog, Ruby. They were the kindest people and so good to my grandparents.

  3. Stewart my thoughts, prayers, and condolence are with you and Susan, as well as the rest of your family.

  4. I loved Becky! My son attended St. Luke Simpson Daycare and Kindergarten, so I knew her well. Then in later years, I exercised with her at University Center. She always asked about my son and what he was up to. A truly caring person!

  5. Becky was one of the most special people I have ever known—a teacher to my own boys, my employer for many years, but, most of all, a dear friend. Our “Golden Girls” coffee group will not be the same without her.

  6. Heaven has gained a most loving angel with the arrival of beautiful Becky. I have missed being with her these last several months but will always cherish the special times we did have together. Sending prayers of peace to Stewart, Susan & your families.

  7. Candle 2I’m sorry to hear of Ms. Becky’s passing. She was such a wonderful person. What a special lady. My mom (Mary Moffett) and Ms. Becky were friends for over 50 years. I will never forget how my mom’s face used to light up when Ms. Becky would come over. They use to laugh until all hours. She was truly like a sister to my mother. Erin and I are so sad to hear this news. I’m so sorry for your loss. What a sad day.

  8. Candle 4Becky was a gift to all who knew her. She had a genuine love for her family and friends and mostly for her Lord, Jesus Christ. We shared many laughs and stories when we were together. Heaven’s gain is our loss.
    With sympathy and love,

  9. Candle 4Ms Becky Davis had a wonderful gift for nurturing children. I was attending St Luke Simpson at the time when she started the preschool when Rev Tommy Dunbar asked me if I could help with the bookkeeping and payroll. I volunteered for about a year until they made other arrangements. It was a very good time getting to know Becky at that time. Praying for your family at this time.

  10. Stewart and Susan,
    Your mom was such a special person! She never met a stranger, nor was ever at a loss for words. I so enjoyed visiting with her. Some of my fondest memories are of the “neighborhood moms” getting together, because they always seemed to have such a good time (I can hear Ms. Eva’s laugh, and Ms. Betty giving the low down). You were truly blessed to have such wonderful and caring parents. Praying for God’s comfort at this time.
