  1. My grandmother was so serious about her role as a grandparent that she created a title all her own, and for 30 years she has been “Granna” to my brother and me. Granna shared her many interests with me, and without her I would never have learned how to crochet, play Bunco, or fix my hair without a brush. Now if only my hair could ever look as good as hers always did… Granna loved penguins and eating shrimp, and playing games at the table with friends. She loved her family well for many years, and we love her.

  2. Our thoughts and prayers are with this wonderful family during their time of grief. Sis was one of a kind! Pat and Phyllis Dugan

  3. Dean: My sincere sympathy goes out to you at this time when such a heart wrenching loss has come into your life. Thank you for letting me know about Maybelle. I will always cling to the happy and precious memories of the time Nora and I shared with Maybelle and with you. The real Doug – WA5VUX

  4. What wonderful life time of memories my parents, Phil and I have had of the Davis family.We all are sadden but are richer God has blessed us all with someone like Maybelle. May God bless and be with you Dean, DD. and Dale

  5. Dale, I’m so sorry to hear of your mother’s passing. My condolences to you and the entire family.

  6. Dear Pop,Dean,Dale,Marlyn & Family, Thank you all for letting me be part of the family. I recall many fond memories spent with all of you. I recall a trip to Austin to visit Dale and Marlyn while she was carrying Chritopher. Mom and Pop were with us and Pop slept in Mom’s lap while she stroked his hair. I recall Stephen and Granna at the deer lease trying all day to catch a fish that is probably still there today. They had fun. She accepted Laura and her children as family. God Bless her. We were all lucky to have known such a wonderful woman. Liz Davis

  9. Dear Dean and Family: Miss Maybelle was ever cheerful and attendant when visiting with those around her. She heard me express an interest in learning to tat, and at one of the next QCWA meetings presented me with a tatting shuttle that must have been a near-antique. Her presence will be felt even though she is no longer with us except in treasured memories. Sincere condolences.

  10. Dean and family, We sympathize with you in your great loss. We will miss her. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

  11. Dale and Family, Our thoughts and prayers are with you as Maybelle’s family and friends gather to say goodbye. She will always be remebered for her friendly smile, strong faith in God, and love for her family. God Bless.

  12. We have many fond memories of Maybelle and Dean. It occurs to us that we have known her since she was our current age. Both were mentors to us in our early years of Amateur Radio — especially to MaryBeth as there were few women participating in Amateur Radio activities. MB fondly remembers sitting together and doing needle work during ham meetings.

  13. She sounds like someone we would have enjoyed knowing and talking to. She must have experienced many things and weathered many changes. We know how much she will be missed.

  14. So sorry to hear about your mom. Please know that our thoughts and prayers are with you. It was really great to see you guys this summer and neat to visit with you dad. I can still remember you mom as our Cub Scout Den Mother.
