Loving wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, friend, Mary Davis Odom, quietly passed away on Friday, February 7, 2014 surrounded by her family and loyal pets. Mary was born near Rockdale, Texas, January 24, 1932 and blessed us with her presence for 82 years. Residing in West Monroe for most of her life, she was a faithful lifelong member of the Claiborne Church of Christ where she was loved dearly. Mary obeyed the gospel of her Lord at the early age of 11 and exemplified His life in humble service to her family, church, and community. She graduated from Ouachita Parish High School in 1950, retired from E.A. Conway Memorial Hospital in 1997 and served as a Notary Public in Ouachita Parish for many years. She filled her life with many deeds as she enjoyed cooking, gardening, acrylic painting, traveling, family genealogy and organizing family reunions. Having a gentle heart and soul, she was a very giving person and was loved by many and will be truly missed by each.
She is survived by her husband of 63 years, Carl R. Odom of West Monroe; five children, Randy K. Odom of Walker, LA; Carla O. Meyers of Baton Rouge, LA; Janis O. Pruett of West Monroe; Gary R.
