Beloved Mom, Daughter, Sister, Niece, Cousin and Friend, Lon joined other family members in heaven on August 4, 2019. She was born January 24, 1972. She’ll always be remembered for the love she has for her three children, Gabby, Jilly and Eli. Lon is all around us and is guiding us as our newest guardian angel.

Lon is survived by her three children, mother and stepfather - Kathy and Mike Reeves, father and stepmother - Lonnie and Pat Clement, grandmother - Gloria Clement, husband - Chad Davis, stepbrothers and wives, Jamie McCollum and Kristy, Joseph McCollum and Kelly, and a multitude of loving aunts and uncles, cousins and friends. Lon was preceded in death by her paternal grandfather, Emery Lloyd Clement, maternal grandparents – Mary Joyce Britt, Maj. George Thomas Keys (USMC, Ret), Golden E. Britt, and Pearl Louise Newton.

Lon read the bible daily this last year and was amazed at, and thankful for, all she learned and the peace it gave her.

With over 30 thousand followers, a vivid Twitter fan @MammaLon, she describes herself as: “God first. Cajun! conservative. Love Cops & Vets. Hate Monsanto and Pedos. Fighting Breast cancer like my life depends on it!” She will always be remembered as one strong, loving, caring and opinionated woman who fought for her life for her children.

There are special people that Lon would like acknowledged as very important in her life: Jacoby Cole, Rich, Kristen and Chase Knapp, Pat and Gene Shifflet and daughters Denise McElyea and Dana Slovacek, Gwen and Ken Smith. In her last three weeks, Lon was taken care of by the ICUs at UTMB, League City Campus and Galveston. The staffs of these hospitals were very caring and giving, particularly the respiratory technicians, nurses and doctors, who in some cases were with her all night.

Visitation will be held Wednesday, August 7 from 5:30-8:30 at Forest Park East Funeral Home located at 21620 Gulf Freeway Webster, Texas. A Celebration of Lon's life will be held Thursday, August 8 at 10:00AM in the Chapel of Forest Park East. Immediately following she will be laid to rest at Forest Park East Cemetery.

Kathy and Mike,

My heart breaks for you both in the loss of your amazing daughter. I didn’t have the pleasure of knowing Lon. But after reading the loving memories of her, I can imagine what a bright light and strong spirit she was. I know your deep sorrow must be in unfathomable.
Kathy, I know you struggled right along with her every step of her battle. I know also that her soul is embraced in the loving arms of our Father in heaven. Know that I will do anything I can for you in this time of sorrow.
