Cloris was born on January 20, 1931 in Stillwater, Oklahoma, the older of two children and the only daughter of Ruben and Laura (Biberdorf) Trompler. She was raised in Coyle and went to school at Payne Center and Paradise. After graduating from Coyle High school, class of 1950, on October 5, 1950, she married Vernon Davis. They set up home, and before long added two sons, Ronnie (1953) and Jimmy (1957).

Cloris loved her boys, but also had a great love of animals. The boys have many memories of her bringing in struggling newborn piglets to bottle feed them. Cloris was well known in her community for her beautiful quilting abilities. She would work year around on making lovely quilts and gifting them to her family at Christmas. Her quilts would always award a large sum of money for the yearly 4-H and FFA Auction. At holidays, her family always gathered around for her homemade noodles, peanut butter fudge and peanut brittle. Out of all the fond memories, she will mostly be remembered for her sweet and gentle spirit. She was a very loved mother, grandmother, sister and aunt; she will be greatly missed.

Cloris was preceded in death by husband, May 22, 1972.

Cloris is survived by two sons, Ron Davis and wife Sherre of Purcell, Oklahoma; Jim Davis and wife Diana of Coyle, Ok; one brother, Jr. (Ruben) Trompler, of Laurie, Mo; four grandchildren, John Davis and wife Melissa of Coyle, Ok; Maegan Tompkins and husband Rodney of Newcastle, Ok, Sabrina Legget and husband Jeff of Stillwater, Ok; Abby Sizelove and husband Blake of Purcell, Ok; eight great grandchildren, Landon, Gage, Landri, Elbryan, Haddy, Truett, Jasper and Ivy; a host of nieces, nephews, family and friends.
