Plan Ahead

Lucia Noleka (Davis) Youngblood

March 2, 1932 –
 December 9, 2022


Lucia Noleka (Davis) Youngblood, 90, was called home by her Savior on Friday, December 9, 2022, at Park N Plano Nursing Home. Noleka was born to Lou Ella and Hartridge Ebenezer Davis of Pooler, GA on March 2, 1932. She graduated from Savannah High School in 1950; and later, obtained her Registered Nursing degree from St Joseph’s Hospital School of Nursing in 1953.

Noleka was blessed with four children that she raised in Pooler, GA and later relocated to Texas. She always maintained a beautiful home and prepared home cooked meals for her family. Noleka returned to work as a registered nurse once her children were older and she found great honor in serving others through her retirement. Even though she left, Noleka’s heart remained in Georgia and she was always studying Savannah history.

Noleka is remembered by those in Pooler as having the best hang out house and she was present for so many who needed her. Those who knew her in Plano will miss her hand-weeded yard and beautiful flower beds that she often tended to for free therapy. Noleka was an avid sports mom as her sons were active in baseball, football, basketball, and track.

Noleka is remembered by her caring spirit and infectious smile. She enjoyed many hobbies including singing, playing the piano, and crafting. She had an extensive collection of her handsewn quilts, none of which ever touched a sewing machine. She made her daughter’s clothes as they grew up and she adjusted and patched clothes for her grandchildren in later years. Noleka was seen for years working on crocheted blankets, knitted baby blankets, and her beautiful quilts.

Noleka is preceded in death by her beloved mother, Lou Ella Davis, father, Hartridge Ebenezer Davis; brother-in-law, Eugene Howard Walker; son-in-law, Timothy Jerome Walls; and daughter-in-law Deborah Cole Youngblood. She is survived by her adoring sister, Gloria Ann Walker of Waycross, GA; daughters Linda Lou Walls of Winston Salem, NC and Cheryl Jean Moore (Terrence Moore) of Seabrook, TX; sons Ralph Augustus Youngblood III of Plano, TX and Everette Stone Youngblood of Frisco, TX; grandchildren Jennifer Ashley Lambeth (Stephen Lambeth) of Winston Salem, NC, Charles Stanley Ballard III (Nicole Ballard) of Frisco, TX, Jason Anthony Bugna (Christina Black Bugna) of Winston Salem, NC, Chrystel Nicole Matthews of Pearland, TX, Morgan Ashley Hefton (Zachary Hefton) of Sherman, TX; great-grandchildren Eleanor Grae, Stone Patrick, Claire Francis, and Miriam Belle Lambeth of Winston Salem, NC, Lucille Lou and Mathis Graham Bugna of Winston Salem, NC, Olivia Marie, James Robert, and Jennifer May Hefton of Sherman, TX; and a host of cherished cousins, nieces, nephews, and great nieces and nephews.

    Noleka was the kindest, caring mother, daughter, grandmother and cousin. She loved her family and it showed in everything she did. I guess that’s why she decided to be a nurse. Her gentle way of treating everyone. I have missed talking to her for several years. But have precious memories of our conversations. Loved spending time with her when she visited Pooler. Fly high, and watch over us from above. Love you Cuz.

    Noleka was my sister in law, but I view her as my sister. I always looked forward to visiting her in Plano, but I have not seen her in many years, due to my age and the long distance between us. She was a great Mom and a wonderful person. I knew her when we both were in our teens. She was staying in My Mom,s home when Ray was in Korea. She was pregnant with Linda and I drove her to the Hospital in Savannah with my mom when Linda was born. I always Remember that. Her Mom could make the best she crab soup in Chatham County. I always looked forward to getting and invitation with my brother Ray and of course Noleka. She always set aside time to talk with me at family gatherings making sure I was doing OK. She did that on my last visit at her Plano home years ago.
    I know this sister of mine now resides in Heaven. She can look down on earth and say she raised a nice decent family, always caring and always doing the right thing as example for eveyone to follow.
    I know our Lord has received you with open arms and you will reside with him for ever and ever, Amen

    I had not seen Noleka in years but always held her in my heart as a wonderful cousin.
    I know she was a loving Mother to her children and grandchildren. She was 9 years and 6 days older than me but when we would visit Bloomingdale I always enjoyed being with her. Rest In Peace sweet lady. Judy Nesmith Helms

"If I could give 6 stars I would. Aria made a difficult easier to deal with by basically taking care of everything in an efficient but very empathetic manner. I can speak highly enough of Dusty Martin, who helped us with all of the planning and logistics. He was incredibly understanding and helpful."

"Nothing prepares you for the grief you go through when losing a child. I called this funeral home at 2:00 am broken and could barely talk. The amount of compassion and empathy they showed me immediately let me know I found the right place to cremate my son. I cannot thank them enough for their professionalism, SINCERE concern, and commitment to making sure my son was honored in the most respectful way. I hope this Funeral home values her as much as my family and I do."

"I can’t say enough about how helpful and professional Dusty Martin, the funeral director at the Aria Cremation location on NW Highway has been. From my initial call, he was kind and informative. My friend died at home while on hospice and she was picked up in about an hour after receiving the call from the hospice nurse. The person who arrived to pick her up was also very professional/respectful and allowed us to take as much time with her as we wished. When I met with Dusty the next day about arrangements, he explained the process and options available without being pushy or trying to “sell” extras. Throughout the process, he kept me informed and, for example, was careful to be certain I understood the cost of the obituary I wanted and offered some options for reducing that cost if I wished. When I stopped by for another reason and started talking about some of the problems I was having with the pictures and media I hoped to use at a memorial lunch I was planning, he not only listened patiently but offered technology advice and let me use his personal media player. I have had experience arranging cremations for four others using two other local companies, and this experience with Dusty at Aria has been by far the best one I have had."

"My Daddy’s service and our family experience at Aria Northwest Highway was truly blessed. Funeral Director Dustin Martin is the kind of person that you would like to see on a more regular basis – but in his industry – you hope to not see him that often. That being said – THANK YOU DUSTIN for your unending kindness, compassion and friendship through the process. Meeting you and discussing Dallas History, Find A Grave and my Dad’s lifelong contributions to the great City of Dallas was simply wonderful! In memory of my dad James A. Dodd, Sr. – I want to personally thank you and let you know that you made everything better in that moment. Your calling to “Be There” is spot on. Aria has a one in a million guy in you! Bling Blinky of TEXAS Shout Out: God Bless You!!"
