About Lenora Davies

Born in Black Bayou, LA (south of Lake Charles). Daughter of Anteall and Medora Reon Benoit. Married Charles William Davies. Mother of Emma Vivienne, Lenora Lucille Marie, Althea Juanita, William Yancey, Ruth Earline, and Charles Raymond.

She never met a stranger - she could find kin folks everywhere for everyone. She loved to cook. She was a strict mother. She believed in her peach branch and would swat the kids on the legs when they misbehaved. She ran a restaurant (Waldron's Cafe) in Hackberry when her youngest child was little. She later worked as a cook at Landry High School. She had breast cancer and cancer of the esophagus. She died from cancer of the lung.
