Jeanne Marie Lamoureux McCauley

Jeanne Marie Lamoureux McCauley peacefully entered the Gates of Heaven on January 7, 2017, following a prolonged illness. She had been living near her children and grandchildren in Tulsa, Oklahoma for the past several years. Jeanne was born in Dayton, Ohio, on March 20, 1940 to the late Charles and Mary Lamoureux. She graduated from Julienne High School in 1958 and from Good Samaritan School of Nursing in 1961 in Dayton. In her younger days she proudly sang with the Dayton Inland Children’s Chorus. She was a committed Christian, reared and baptized in the Catholic faith, and then as a Methodist in her later years. She was commissioned as a 2nd Lieutenant in the United States Air Force assigned to the 805 Medical Group in the Strategic Air Command at Whitman, A.F.B. It was during this time when she met and married Stan Davis who also served in the Air Force medical corps. Together they were blessed with three children, Chris, Mark, and Maleah. “The sunshine of her life” were her grandchildren who brought her great joy and happiness, Alexi, Aleigh, Alec, Annaston, Emilie, Caden, and Katie.

She was a dedicated nurse for 50+ years and working in the emergency room, maternity, psychiatric units. Even in her final days she explained being a nurse was not just what she did, but defined who she was. Jeanne loved to travel, and with wings on her feet she traveled at any opportunity that came her way. As a traveling a nurse she was privileged and thrilled to work all over the country. She was a member of the local La Sertoma club, which funds scholarships to nursing students. Jeanne was preceded in death by her parents and beloved sister Martha Hughes. She is survived by her children; Chris Davis (wife Adora, granddaughter Emilie) of Broken Arrow, OK; Mark Davis (wife Valerie, grandsons Alec and Caden, and granddaughter Katie) of Topeka, KS; and Maleah Rowe (husband Cliff, granddaughters Alexi Eisner (husband Taylor), Aleigh, and Annaston); her beloved brother Phillip and his wife Mary Kay Lamoureux; her nieces and nephews, Laura Shady, David Hughes, Jim Lamoureux, Tom Lamoureux, Rob Lamoureux, and Joe Lamoureux; her brother-in-law Larry Hughes, and many dear friends all over the country.

Jeanne’s family would like to express their gratitude to the medical staff at Saint Francis Hospital, Saint Francis Hospice, and Clarehouse, in Tulsa, Oklahoma. They would also like to acknowledge eternal thanks to the pastoral staff at Tulsa’s Asbury United Methodist Church who walked with Jeanne and helped carry her across the finish line, especially Pastor Jim Lindermann, who was with her in her final hours.

Jeanne was extremely proud of her service to the Country and will be interned at the National Cemetery at Ft. Gibson, Oklahoma on President’s Day, February 20, 2017 at 10am. Also on that date at 1pm will be a Celebration of Life service at Clarehouse in Tulsa (7617 S. Mingo Rd, Tulsa, 918)893-6150). Memorials should be directed to Shawnee Mission La Sertoma, for nursing scholarships. 629 Troost, Olathe, KS 66061, 913)815-3287.
