Marisela Haydeé Dávila Téllez

May 25, 1955 – September 10, 2020

Marisela Haydeé Dávila Téllez, 65, entered into eternal rest on Thursday, September 10, 2020. Marisela was born and raised in Laredo, Texas. Marisela was a graduate of J.W. Nixon High School and Laredo Community College.  For half of her professional career, she was an Executive Assistant for Anzon Inc./Great Lakes Chemical Corporation.  She gave 25 + years of service to the company. She, also simultaneously and successfully, managed the family business, Blue Knight Enterprises. In the latter part of her career, she dedicated herself to assisting high school age students with Special Needs. She was a true educator at heart who had a strong connection to her students.  She had a great passion for teaching and working with this diverse population at United High School. She loved celebrating anything and loved decorating everything. She was known to never forget someone’s birthday, even in the Summer. She would mail birthday cards to colleagues and staff. She is remembered fondly by friends and colleagues as fun-loving, considerate, highly organized, the celebration planner, decorator and for always being willing to go above and beyond to help others. She had a true heart of gold. She knew how to make people feel loved and special with her thoughtfulness. She decorated the world with color, her laughter and her kindness.

Marisela was a dedicated daughter, sister, aunt and friend. She was an inspirational wife, mother and an amazing Nana who gave to her family, without thinking twice, whole-heartedly. She found her greatest moments of happiness when surrounded by her family, especially her five children, their spouses and her grandchildren. Her grandchildren were “Nana’s pride and joy”. She was known for her listening ear, her compassionate ways, her non-judgmental view, and her giving and considerate heart.  She most enjoyed holiday celebrations and travel which often brought her family together. She thoroughly enjoyed gardening, painting, crafting, re-decorating, organizing, baking, planning trips and traveling all over the world with family and friends.

Left to cherish her memory are her beloved children, Michael David Dancause, Richard (Laura) Tellez, James (Mary) Tellez, Mónica Marie (Christian) Arste, Marisa (Elias) Ramos. She will also be greatly missed by her loving grandchildren, Jorge (Amanda) Lozano, Jr., Roxanne (José Angel) Valdez, Jonathan (Delia) Treviño, Serena Zulema, James Eli II, Darius Richard, Mason Anthony, Bella Grace, Michael David, Mariela Mia, Angelik Daniela and Eva Ausma, as well as by her twelve great grandchildren. She is also survived by her sister, Nora Alicia (Phillip) Barron-Blinn, nieces, María Elena(Rick)Sullivan, Michelle Angelique (Greg) Woskow, nephew, Donald Andrew (Mindy) Barron and her many adored aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and cousins from Washington to Cancun who all loved “Mari” so very much.

Marisela Haydeé is preceded in death by her husband, Felix Ricardo Téllez; her parents, Bulmaro Jesus Dávila, Jr. “Mayo” (father), Rafaela Guerra Dávila “Fela” (mother) and her brother, Bulmaro Dávila III. Marisela took her final breath only 33 days after her beloved husband, Ricardo. We know she has reunited with him, for their final destination on a Heavenly journey. They are dancing together again, for all eternity, in the loving and inseparable bond they held in their hearts for each other and their family. They are still shining beacons of love, warmth, and joy, and Rick and Mari will remain so to all who knew them.
