Lucia Noleka (Davis) Youngblood
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
Dear Linda , I am so sorry to hear of your loss. I’ll have your family in my prayers. 💕Deb Winans
I’m very sorry to here about your Mom passing, my prayers are with you. Sincerely Joy Aiken
Condolences to Ralph, Morgan, Stone, and the rest of the family. Noleka was such a special and unique person that loved her family very much. I will always appreciate what she did for Morgan. She will be missed. God Bless Her. (Mark Finn)
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
