Obituary for Imogene Davis York

Imogene Davis York was called to her heavenly home on July 14, 2018. She was loved by those who knew her and had the blessings of a full and beautiful life.
Jean was 87 years old, born Sept. 23, 1930, to Holman "Smoky" and Cassie Colbert.

A proud Native American, Jean had Choctaw and Chickasaw heritage. She was raised in and graduated from high school in Gerty. After marrying Othell Davis, they resided in numerous small communities in Texas before moving to Brisbane, Australia, where they raised two children, Delena and Jimmy Davis.

Upon her husband's passing, Jean moved to Oklahoma, where she met and married Freddie York. They had a son, Christopher York. Her later years were spent in and around the Allen and Gerty communities.

An avid sports fan, Jean was a professional bowler in Australia in the 1960s and in later life followed the NBA as a passionate supporter of the Oklahoma City Thunder. Some of her fondest memories involved attending Thunder playoff games.

Professionally, Jean was a teacher's aide, a nursing assistant and a caregiver to numerous senior citizens and at one point even helped her second husband as a roofer.

She is survived by her three children; Jimmy Davis and spouse, Karen, of Yukon, Delena McKerley and spouse, Ed, of Allen and Christopher York of Gerty. Her grandchildren include Jaime Booth, Andrea Dowell, Brian Davis and Darren Davis. Her great-grandchildren include Dillon, Austin and Logan Davis, Avyn and Kinsler Dowell and Emerson McKerley.

Jean was preceded in death by her first husband, Othell Davis, and her second husband, Freddie York.

A public viewing will be held between 9 a.m. and 8 p.m. Friday at Hudson's Funeral Home in Holdenville. A celebration of her life will be held from 1 to 4 p.m. Saturday at the Chickasaw Community Center in Ada.
