Davidson-Ethel Mary (Hodges) Davidson, 88 years. Born in Windsor, Ontario October 21, 1928. Loving daughter of Val and Edith Hodges and was big sister to her brother and best friend Frank (1995). Married to Scotsman and noted loving handful Donald Macintosh Davidson in 1958, until his passing in 2010. They built a life together with 3 children, Heather (Brian Roth) of Dorchester ON, Doug (Sherry Clark) of Toronto, ON and Sheila (John Murphy) of Midland MI. Loving Stepmother to Glynis Steele (William) and Valerie MacPherson (Sandy) both of Windsor ON. Loving grandmother of Piper and Kieran of Midland MI, Sasha of Edmonton AB, Courtney of Vancouver BC, Corey and Joshua of Windsor ON and Heather of Halifax NS. Auntie Ethel to the Hodges family; sister-in-law Jeanne of Windsor, ON, nephews and nieces Stephen, Patricia, Mike and Susan. Special friend and honorary mom to so many. After graduating from Patterson High School in Walkerville, ON she went on to graduate from Nursing at Grace Hospital in Windsor in 1950, and earned her Nursing Degree from University of Toronto. She was your favorite nurse that told you to quit smoking, do your monthly breast or prostate exam, get your colonoscopy, advise you to get that mole looked at and to get moving and lose a few pounds. As you should! Ethel was always right about these things. After retiring from her career as an Occupational Health Nurse for Terra Inc. she spent her time between her home town of almost 50 years in Corunna ON and her cottage on Manitoulin Island ON, enjoying her love of nature, birding and spending time with the many friends she made. Our girl loved a good auction or yard sale, her pursuit and locating of “treasures” was legendary. She spent her final two years in Dorchester ON, lovingly cared for by daughter Heather and son-in-law Brian. She was blessed with the kindest friends and neighbors possible. She loved and was loved. Special thanks to Dr. Shiraz Malik, the Dorchester CCAC and VON support teams, Alaina Aguanno and the Victoria Hospital Emergency team and D6200 staff for the excellent care she received. Friends will be received at the Knight Funeral Home, 588 St. Clair Parkway, Corunna on Tuesday August 8, 2017 from 11:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. where a celebration of life will follow at 1:00 p.m. with Rev.
