Lorena Hart Davis Bingham

Pauls Valley Democrat

Pauls Valley, Oklahoma — Lorena Hart Davis Bingham, 93, died December 24, 2012. She was born June 28, 1919 near Maysville in the Story community to R.E. and Mont (Vaut) Hart.

She was preceded in death by an older brother who died as a very young child, her second brother Marshall Hart, sister Alice Hart Guion and a second husband, K.P. Bingham.

Rena is survived by her son, Thomas W. Davis and his wife Linda of Florida; a son, Donald C. Davis of Norman, Oklahoma; and a daughter, Mary Davis Wilson of Moore, Oklahoma; as well as numerous grandchildren, great-grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren, nieces and nephews.

In the very early 1950s Rena went to work as a medical secretary for the hospital in Pauls Valley, Oklahoma and then for the Pauls Valley Medical Center.

Rena was the ultimate professional and was highly intelligent, using her secretarial skill to work diligently for the doctors and patients at the clinic. After 44 years of service she finally retired in her mid-70s.

Until her health started to fail Rena was an active member of the Paoli Methodist Church. Over the years she served as secretary, a communion steward, MYF sponsor, adult Sunday School Class leader and choir member. With K.P.'s help she provided many, many gallons of lemonade to the volunteer crews who helped construct the new Methodist Church building.

Funeral services will be held Saturday, December 29, 2012 at 10:30 a.m. at Stufflebean Chapel of Remembrance, officiated by Rev. Kay Karen Kennedy. Interment will be at Paoli Cemetery under the direction of Stufflebean-Coffey Funeral Home.
