Ida's Story

Text size

Ida Jane Davis was born October 23, 1912 in Corum, Okla. to Will and Cora Stewart. She has lived in Corum, Hastings, Fleetwood and Grady, Okla., all before age 10, when she moved to Edmond, Okla. after the loss of her father.
Ida was married to Willie Davis on October 29, 1932. They celebrated 51 years together before his death in 1984. She was an active member of First United Methodist Church since 1923, and continued to be active until her health wouldn't allow her to attend anymore. She got her first car in 1932 and tells the story of first driving at the age of 12. She got her first television in 1946 and first phone in 1941.
