Tribute

 

Peggy Jo Davis entered her Heavenly home March 24, 2022, at the age of 89.  She was born July 25, 1932, in Rogers, Arkansas, to O.P. and El Givvia Rogers.

 

Peggy grew up in Rogers, Arkansas, and graduated from Rogers High School in 1950.  She went on to attend the University of Oklahoma and was a member of The Pride of Oklahoma.  It was there that she met the love of her life, Vernon Davis.  The two were married on September 1, 1953, at McFarlin Memorial United Methodist Church, where they were members for 67 years.  They both were in the Church choir, and Peggy served as Church receptionist for several years.

 

Peggy took on the role of military wife and supported Vernon in his career with the U.S. Army until his military retirement in 1973.  While living in the islands, Peggy and Vernon enjoyed scuba diving.  In 1968, Peggy was featured on the cover of Skin Diver Magazine.  She was also a Girl Scout leader for her daughter’s troops from Brownies to senior year.  She then began training future Girl Scout leaders for the Sooner Girl Scout Council.

 

Peggy loved to read and was an avid bird watcher.  Above all, she and Vernon enjoyed traveling the world together.  Whether in their RV or on trips with the Church choir, they traveled the United States extensively, Europe, and every continent except Antarctica.  They even went on an African safari in their 80s.

 

Survivors include her sons, Dennis Davis and wife Mary of Frenchtown, Montana, and Randy Davis of Goldsby; daughter, Cathy Fegett and husband James O. of Noble; grandchildren, Kyle Scott Davis and fiancé Lindsy Brasier, and Danielle Davis and significant other Ryan Taylor; great grandchildren, Dominic, Ethan, and Lillian; nieces, Jean Ann Jones and husband Johnny, and Alexa Geyer; as well as many other family and friends.

 

Peggy was preceded in death by her husband, Vernon; her parents; sister, Ada Mae Geyer; and nephew, Roger Geyer.

 

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the McFarlin Chancel Choir in Peggy’s name.
