Obituary

Lena Patricia "Pat" Davis, 78, passed away peacefully at her home in San Antonio, Texas on Monday, October 7th while surrounded by her family.
Patricia was born in Jefferson County, Texas to Sam C. and Lydia J. Mazzola. She grew up in Beaumont and attended French High School. After graduation, she worked her way through college and received a Bachelor's of Science Degree in Education from Lamar University. Her first job after college was as an elementary school teacher in Yancey, Texas. It was there that she met Doyle Lynn Davis and after a brief courtship they married in 1965. Patricia retired from teaching and moved with her husband to San Antonio, Texas that same year.
Patricia grew up a Southern Baptist, but converted to the Church of Christ, along with her husband, in the mid-1960s. They first attended the Woodlawn Hills Church of Christ and then several other churches in the San Antonio area. Patricia remained a faithful and devout Christian for the remainder of her life, and at the time of her passing, Patricia was a member of the O'Connor Road Church of Christ.
In the 1980s, she returned to college and studied math, history, and art at the University of Texas at San Antonio. She loved to draw and to paint and instilled a love of art in her children. During this time, she also returned to education as a substitute teacher in the Northside Independent School District.
Patricia raised three children and helped raise six grandchildren. She was a loving person who cared about people and enjoyed being surrounded by family. She took care of her ailing mother for 14 years and in the last few years of her life, she took care of her husband after he was diagnosed with dementia.
She loved to read and was well versed in the scriptures, current events and politics. She loved to travel and meet new people and experience new things. Her favorite activity however, was sitting on the floor and playing with her grandchildren.
Patricia was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in June of 2019. She was lovingly cared for at home by her family and the wonderful staff at Embrace Hospice.
Patricia is survived by her loving husband of 54 years, Doyle L. Davis; her son, Christopher S. Davis (Stacie); and her daughters, Stephanie A. Wersell (Chad) and Kimberly J. Young; her granddaughters, Kaylee N. Rosales, Savannah N. Young and Catherine G. Davis; grandsons, Cole A. Davis, Baylor R. Young and Brayden S. Young; great-granddaughter, Oakley-Rae Davis; her sisters-in-law, Juanita Mazzola, Carol Mazzola, and Margaret Davis; her aunt, Lucille Hinson; and numerous cousins, nieces and nephews. Her three brothers preceded her in death, Salvatore A. Mazzola, Sr. (2006), James R. Mazzola (2007) and John W. Mazzola (2015).
