Laura Marian Davis Wilson, age 94, died on September 23, 2013, in Eugene, Oregon.

Laura was born in Willis, Texas, to John Crawford Davis and Mary Royston Patton Davis. She grew up in Conroe and graduated from Conroe High School in 1937. She married Fred Bee Wilson, her husband of 45 years, on January 14th, 1945. Laura was a founding member of the Groceville Church of God (7th Day). Fred and Laura lived in Conroe and Houston while Fred worked for the Texas Highway Department. Laura was employed in young adult years at Wackers and McAdams Department Store; however, her main focus was always her home and family. Fred and Laura purchased a home in Conroe after his retirement where they lived until his death in 1990. After Fred's death, Laura shared the home with her two sisters, Dorothy Willette and Lena Helton. In 2005, Laura and twin sister, Lena, moved to Oregon to be near family when Lena was battling lymphoma. Laura was preceded in death by her parents, husband, three brothers (Jeff Davis, Johnny Davis, and Ralph Davis), and three sisters (Eva Davis Kelley, Dorothy Davis Robinson Willette, and Lena Davis Helton). Survivors include two daughters, Mary Jean Wilson Knoll (husband Kenneth), and Paula Wilson Mann (husband Kenneth), both of Eugene, Oregon. Grandchildren: Carla Knoll McKibben (husband Jeff), Kristen Knoll Lang (husband Kurt), Amber Mann Riggs (husband Bryan), and Jonathan Mann. Eight great grandchildren: Nicole, Jordan, and Korban Lang; Anna, Laura, and Faith Riggs; and Jesse and Madelyn McKibben. Sisters-in-law: Verna Davis, Margaret Barnett, Edith Watson, and Mary Mayfield (Dowe) and a host of nieces and nephews.

Laura in a quiet and unassuming way built a strong family of faith. A couple of days ago, she was told that if she sees Jesus to run to Him. Her response was "I can run." Laura always ran to Jesus - spending many hours on her knees interceding for family and friends. Her life exemplified her strong faith in God and the saving power of His Son, Jesus Christ. Laura is most remembered for: her beautiful smile; her dedication to prayer; her hospitality; bedtime stories to grandchildren and great-grandchildren; her delicious cinnamon rolls; her positive attitude ("It will all work out."); and her perseverance ("I'm tough"). Fred and Laura's home was a warm, inviting place where people of all ages were surrounded by love, good conversation, and great food.
