Martha Melinda Harris


Martha Melinda Harris passed away at the age of 60 on Nov. 11, 2012, near her home in Lockhart.

She was a woman of powerful consciousness and intellect. She was a great wife, daughter, sister, friend and nurse of 40 years. She highly valued her friends and her patients and deeply loved animals and the outdoors.

Humanity has lost one of its best examples and our lives are

now a little less full.

The last six years, her nursing career brought her to Texas Nursing and Rehabilitation in San Marcos where she was dearly loved by all the staff, patients and families.

She is survived by her husband and soul mate of 26 years, Bill Davisson, of Lockhart; mother, Dorlene; sister, Nancy Harris McBee and husband, Arnie, niece Julie Clarke, great-niece and –nephew, London and Ayden, of Corpus Christi, Texas; nephew Adam McBee, of San Antonio, aunts and uncles: Ethel King, of Beaumont, Edna Revel, of Austin, Judy and Joe Hallmark, of Granbury, Patricia and Jim Bowlsby, of Garland, and John and Hilda Underwood, of Dublin; cousins, Alice and Larry Cockrell, of Inez, Texas; and numerous other cousins and relatives, as well as innumerable friends and loved ones.
