Graveside service for Elizabeth "Becky" Caldwell, 86, of Douglass, will be at 2:00 PM on Friday, October 15, 2021, at Garden of Memories Cemetery, in Lufkin, with Bro. Randy Arnold officiating.
Elizabeth “Becky” Davis Caldwell was born and raised in the Houston area. When she was a young lady, she found herself on a double date with her sister. After an enjoyable evening, and several more dates, both girls knew they were destined to marry these brothers. And that, they did. On August 1, 1952 Becky and Bill Davis were joined together in marriage. Their life was filled with the kind of joy that only true love can bring. They traveled the country due to Bill’s job and Becky was quite content with her perfect life. They loved their children without boundaries, and although they raised them to be independent they were overjoyed anytime the kids needed them for something. Becky and Bill were the perfect example of what a marriage should be. Their travels took them, literally, from coast to coast and the moments they had together with their family were priceless. In 1971, Bill was sent to East Texas for his job with the dump-truck business he and his brother had established. They came to Moscow, Texas to help with building roads and Bill and Becky were happy to be right where they knew they belonged. In 1978, tragedy struck and Becky had to say goodbye to her precious Bill. This was truly hard on Becky. She began to realize her life would never be the same. In 1987, Becky was working in a doctor’s office where she was introduced to a gentleman named Dale Caldwell who had also lost a spouse. The two of them, through each other’s grief, became great friends and fell in love. They were married on June 6, 1987 and spent a very happy 29 years together. They loved traveling and constantly visited their favorite places to visit family or simply get away. In 2016, Becky once again found herself saying goodbye to her husband. The loss of a second husband led to Becky seeing just how important being with family was. She spent every moment she could with the ones she loved the most. Her children and grandchildren were the most important thing to her and she loved them without reservation or boundaries. She also enjoyed watching her hummingbirds and the roses she grew so beautifully. Her caring, sweet disposition, her motherly advice, her perfect chicken and dressing and the unmistakable smell of her famous pumpkin pie are only a few of the things that her closest family and friends will miss dearly.
Becky is survived by her children, Jerry Davis & wife Teresa, James R. Davis & wife Seletia and DiAnna K. Baker & husband Keith; bonus children Margaret Timme & husband, Steve and Roger Caldwell & wife Judy; grandchildren, Kristi Spears & husband Cedric, Olivia Davis, Joshua Baker & wife Bree, Amanda Baker, Luke Baker, Sarah Hildebrand & husband Ronnie, Jenny Tousha, Meredith Guzman and Hope Guzman; 15 great grandchildren; 4 great great grandchildren; and sister, Verna Corb.
She is preceded in death by her first husband and father of her children, W.O. “Bill” Davis; Son, Darrell W. Davis; and second husband, Dale Caldwell.
