On Sept. 20, 2022, Winifred “June” Davis Hathcock passed away peacefully in Amarillo, Texas. She was 96 years old. A lifelong Texas native, June was well-loved in towns she lived in throughout the state, including Amarillo, Wichita Falls, Graham and Newcastle. She was wife, Mom, Grammy and June to those who knew and loved her and was called beautiful by everyone she encountered.
She was preceded in death by her husband of 62 years, Jay Lewis Sr.; mother, Avis Neal Middleton; father, Jack Davis; son, Jay Lewis Jr. (Sharyn); daughter, Olivia Blankenship; grandson, Jason Hathcock (Kirsten); great-grandson, Shawn Hathcock; and sister, Patsy Roberts (Dale).
She is survived by five grandchildren — Jeremy Hathcock (Amy), of Lakeside, Arizona; Ian Hathcock (Jessica), of Phoenix, Arizona; Olivia Smith (James), of Scottsdale, Arizona; Julie Clarke (Jeff), of Amarillo, Texas; Sheryl Caldwell (Tony), of Tallassee, Alabama; and many great-grandchildren.
Our beautiful Grammy loved all things pink, big band and choir music, daily walks, sunshine, dancing, and sweet treats — lots of them. She had an incredible memory, and her fondest memories were always of her childhood in Newcastle and Graham, and of her family. She is finally reunited with so many of them now. Our hearts are so sad for ourselves, but we rejoice that she is in the arms of Jesus, fully healed.
A service will be at 10:00 a.m., Thursday, September 29, 2022, in the Boxwell Brothers Ivy Chapel, 2800 Paramount Blvd. Graveside service for the family will be at Newcastle Cemetery in Newcastle. Arrangements are by Boxwell Brothers Funeral Directors, Amarillo.

Knew you as June Bug. You were only a month older than your cousin Barbara Allen my mom. Y’all favored a lot.
I loved your dad. He was always so sweet to us.
The funniest story I remember is when mom rolled your hair thinking coclebur’s were the best rollers. You cried when they had to cut them out.
June was and always will be one of my most favorite clients of our beauty school. She was always so sweet to our students and always had a “God Bless you” for everyone. God Bless you, June and rest in the peaceful arms of our Lord.
She loved you and your ladies so much. Thank you for alllll you did through the years.
I only knew June for a few years through our Ladie’s Freedom Class at Coulter Road Baptist Church. She was the sweetest, kindest, most gracious lady I had ever met. She loved her family so much and always spoke about them. All our class loved her and enjoyed her wit and godly wisdom. She really did make this world a better brighter place!
June was a very sweet and kind lady. She was a member of my Sunday School class taught by Jan McCathern at Coulter Road Baptist Church. She loved everyone and was appreciative of everything. She will be missed.
What a sweet, sweet lady!! I was in the same class at AHS as Jay & also went to church with them. Just always a very kind, sweet, smiling lady. Lots of fond memories. Will be praying for the family. Dick Rice
