DAVIS, JEANNINE BROWN (1928 ~ 2008). The following is an obituary for Jeannine Brown Davis, spouse of Judge Tom G. Davis. The obituary was published in the September 30, 2008 edition of the Austin American Statesman.

"Mrs. Tom G. Davis, the former Jeannine Brown, the younger of two daughters of pioneer West Texas druggist R.O. Brown and Hazel Brown, was born on December 19, 1928 in Vernon. Her sister, Mrs. Frank E. (Bobbie) Murchison, Jr., lives in Lubbock. Mrs. Davis attended Baylor University, 1946-1948, and graduated from the University of Texas in 1950. She married Judge Tom G. Davis on September 15, 1951.

Jeannine's life revolved around her family, Leslie Ann of Austin, Robert Mark of New York, Tom Brown of Dallas, and Tom's wife, Mary Anne, who Jeannine loved and regarded as one of her own. While grandchildren Meredith and Will of Dallas did not arrive until late in her life, Jeannine regarded them as so special that they were worth the wait. She took great pride in the fact that all members of the family hold degrees from the University of Texas.

Mrs. Davis was a member of All Saints' Episcopal Church. A Tri Delta alumnae, she held memberships in Austin State Official Ladies Club, Austin Lawyers' Wives Club, and Sierra Verde Garden Club.

Jeannine Davis was an extraordinarily kind and loving wife, mother, grandmother, sister, and friend who possessed a beautiful sense of style, a radiant smile, and a hearty laugh. Her sweet nature and kindness to others will always be remembered.

Services will be held at 1:30 p.m. on Tuesday, September 30, 2008 at All Saints' Episcopal Church, 209 W. 27th St, Austin. Burial will follow at the Texas State Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to All Saints' Episcopal Church in Austin or a church or charity of one's choice."
