Note for:   Clara Louise Fuchs\Fox,   23 FEB 1910 - 13 NOV 1976         Index
Burial:   
     Place:   Forest Park Cemetery, on Lawndale, Houston, Texas

Note:    Clara Louise Fox

She loved her family and took care of them all. She loved flowers and
to garden. She loved to fish. She loved to crab. She loved to cook.
Clara Louise, called Louise, was born to Ernest and Ida Fuchs (Fox),
nee Stelzig, on February 23, 1910. She died on November 13, 1976
with complication of the liver and is buried beside her husband,
Jeptha Boone Davis in Forest Park Cemetery on Lawndale in Houston,
Texas. Jeptha Boone Davis was born on October 7, 1907 to Jeptha
Chambless and Betty Davis, nee Chambless, in Montgomery, Texas, and
died on October 10, 1984 in Houston. Smoking caused him to have
breathing problems that led to death.

Louise and J. B. were married in 1933. Three children were born to
them, Robert Gene, Edith Louise and Jeptha Bryan.

Louise worked in banks. First City National Bank was the last bank
she worked in before retiring. J. B. worked as an accountant for
Henke and Pilot Grocery later named Kroger's. He was the only person
running the credit union, until a few years before retirement when he
had a helper. He was underpaid and overworked. When he retired, it
took six people to take his place. He then helped his son, Robert at
his place of business.

Louise, the super mom of the century, loved to cook and Christmas was
her favorite time of year. She fixed candy and took it to work and
gave much of it away as gifts and sold it to make money also. She
baked cakes through the year for all occasions. Everyone loved her
cooking. She fixed the best roast and gravy, the best turkey and
dressing you can imagine as well as all of the fixins, soup, gumbo,
fried chicken and fish. You name it and she could fix it better than
anyone else. Her husband chopped and cut up vegetables, grated
fresh coconut, picked out crab meat and was a great assistant in the
kitchen. He could really barbque too They were a team. Both were
deeply loved and are sorely missed.
