Robiel Davis Tallant

April 23, 1924 ~ July 20, 2019 (age 95)

Robiel Mae Davis Tallant passed away in Ocean Springs, MS on Saturday, July 20, 2019 at the age of 95.

Robiel was born April 23, 1924 in Tupelo, MS to Charles and Wilma Davis.  Mrs. Tallant, being a southern belle, was conscientious of her appearance and fashion. She used the skills to help others while working at Brumfield's Department Store for many years.  More important than her outer beauty was her beauty that came from her love of her Savior Jesus Christ.  She was a longtime member of First Baptist Church of Pascagoula and was active in the Adult Choir and all the other Senior Adult Activities as long as her health allowed.  It was always a pleasure to be in her company. She will be greatly missed.

She was preceded in death by her husband Ralph B. Tallant; her siblings, Linnie Napp, Leon, Homer, Elton, and Charles Davis.

She is survived by two children Barry Tallant and his wife Frances of Ringwood, NJ; and Jan Avery and her husband Brig of Grand Bay, AL; three grandchildren,  Kelly Frye (Chuck) of Ocean Springs, Clint Avery (Brandi) of Pascagoula, and William Talllant of Ringwood, NJ;  great-grandchildren, Will, Caroline, Elizabeth and Griffin Frye and Vivian Grace Avery.

Visitation will be Wednesday July, 24, 2019 from 1-2 pm at O'Bryant – O'Keefe Funeral Home with funeral following in the chapel at 2pm.  A private entombment will conclude at Jackson County Memorial Park.  In lieu of flowers the family  suggests donations in Mrs Tallant's memory to Gideon Bibles.
