Mary T. Davidson, 89, beloved mother, grandmother, great grandmother and friend to all, passed peacefully on February 8, 2020, on a crisp New England night with a full moon to lead her home in Heaven.
Mary was born on June 25, 1930 in Roxbury, Massachusetts the daughter of Leo and Beatrice (Arsenault) Gallant.
Mary met and married Robert D. Davidson, Sr. on January 26, 1949 and raised six children together; where Mary was primarily a homemaker, and kept the household running efficiently with a good dose of humor. She was an excellent cook and baked all her cakes, cookies and pies from scratch. She was the glue that kept the family together and also the disciplinarian of the family!
Both Mary and Bob believed in giving back to their communities and found lifelong friendships with their memberships with the Ruth Chapter #14 Order of Eastern Star in Springvale. Throughout the years she held many officers and was a true example of service to others. She also delivered Meals on Wheels locally and belonged to the Red Hat Society. Mary and Bob were longtime parishioners of Alfred Parish Church and made their home in Alfred for over 40 years.
Together as a family, they took trips to Northern Maine, Canada and drove cross country to Missouri; where Mary drove in five lanes of traffic with ease – going over 80 mph! Needless to say, she kept her foot to the pedal with her ever present smile intact! She looked forward to her craft meetings which were known as the “Stitch-n-Bitch Group.” They discussed world politics, religion and what was new with each family member. Mary was kind hearted, loved her family and many friends and was always there when you need her. She will be dearly missed and is now at peace.
She is lovingly survived by her children, Bruce C. Davidson, Jr. and wife Barbara of Westbrook; Jon S. Davison and wife Mel of Mesa, AZ; Patricia J. Sheehan and husband James of East Baldwin; and Mark P. Davidson and wife Sharon of Nevada; 12 grandchildren, 13 great grandchildren and two great-great grandchildren; three sisters, Peggy Flynn and Priscilla Macland, both of Bath and Lorraine Williams of Missouri; and many nieces and nephews.
Mary was predeceased by her husband of 69 years, Robert D. Davidson, Sr.; her son Robert Jr. and daughter Linda.
