Victoria Joanne Starr passed away in Houston, TX on January 18, 2021. Joanne was born on July 7th, 1960 to Jim and Nancy Davis of Menard, Texas. She will be laid to rest at Rest Haven in Menard, Texas. She will be remembered as a loving Wife of 24 years to Thomas Starr, an exceptional Mother to Michael, Claire, and Erik, an unforgettable Mojo (Grandmother) to Nash, a favorite Daughter to Nancy and Jim Davis, a tough Sister to 4 brothers Keith (Karen) Davis, Charlie (Colleen) Davis, John (Jayne) Davis, and late Brother Chris Davis, and an impactful teacher to many young students over an illustrious 35 years of teaching 2nd, 3rd, and 4th graders. Joanne wrote, “I know the Lord has plans for me - not sure what they are yet - I would love to be a testimony to others - if that is the Lord’s will. I definitely have the personality to help others. Helping others has been my calling for over 35 years.” She LOVED to teach, and the family has been overwhelmed reading stories of how she has impacted students and their families over the course of her career. Joanne’s 60 years were full of life. She loved God, danced like no one was watching, could bake a mean buttermilk pie, was the life of the party, and loved her Family and friends fiercely. In the words of her Father, Jim Davis (Pappy), “Joanne, why do I love you so much?” Everyone feels that way about her. She will be deeply missed by all of her family and friends. A Memorial Service will be held on January 30th, 2021 at 4:30pm, Community of Faith Church, 16124 Becker Road, Hockley, Texas 77477. A personal graveside service for close family will be held in Menard, Texas on January 23, 2021. In remembrance of Joanne’s life, the Family asks that any charitable donations be made to the Alzheimer’s Association, a cause that Joanne cared about deeply. http://act.alz.org/donate Joanne wrote these words during her battle with cancer and the Family believes that they capture her essence: “God does not disappoint. I am thankful for the love He shows me, the comfort He gives me, and the family He gave me.” Funeral arrangements are entrusted to Heritage Funeral Home of Menard.
