SHREVEPORT, La. — Born of a deep southern heritage and nourished by loving parents, Syble was always smiling, cheerful and positive. The perfect example of the embodiment of God’s purpose of love, she cheerfully served Him each day of her beautiful life.
Visitation was held from 1 to 2 p.m. followed by a memorial service on Jan. 31, 2013, in the chapel of Osborn Funeral Home with Dr. Larry Williams officiating.
Syble Davis Hatcher was born on June 26, 1921, in Jena, L. Orphaned at the age of six, she was raised and adopted by her loving Aunt Mary and Uncle Jack Willis. The strength of their unconditional love and Christian home molded her into the incredible lady she became.
A lifelong resident of Shreveport, Syble loved Broadmoor Baptist Church and Fair Park High School. A graduate of Fair Park, she served as the principal’s secretary for more than 20 years. Her very special friends from Fair Park, church, and The Styles have always meant the world to her.
Preceding Syble in death was her husband, Leonard Joseph; a son, Jack Dalton; parents Jack and Mary Willis; and a brother, Max Willis.
Left to cherish beautiful memories are her son, Donald Ray Hatcher and wife Carol of Heath; granddaughters Jill Alison Mahan and husband Travis of Heath, Rebecca Bolda and husband Gary of Shreveport, and Ashley Bell and husband Jeffrey of Richmond, Texas; beloved great-grandchildren, Avery, Piper, Karsen, and Emery Mahan and Jacob Bolda and Trevor Brown; along with extended relatives and very special friends of the Hatcher family.
As the family closes this remarkable chapter in their lives, we open a new one with cherished memories that will strengthen us throughout our journey with her by our side.
The family would like to express their sincerest gratitude to the exceptional caregivers at Arbor House and Heritage Hospice.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made in her son Jack Hatcher’s honor to the American Nephrology Nurses Association, P.O. Box 38062 Shreveport, LA 71133.
