May 30, 1932 – April 3, 2012
Eileen Muriel Davidson (nee Easton) born May 30, 1932 in Edmonton grew up and completed schooling there, except for one year in Calgary as a pre-teen. Her parents Reg and Ethel were well known in the Edmonton business community. Among other interests, she was a C.G.I.T. leader in Edmonton, skilled ice skater and comptometer operator. She married Bob Davidson in 1952 and bore two sons, Robert (Patricia), then Murray (Jacqueline) before moving to Calgary in 1957 with her husband and sons. She and Bob had their daughter, Karen, here in Calgary, where they lived and enjoyed their many friendships and all else that Calgary offers; especially bridge and skiing.
On April 3rd, she left Bob and her children, sister Carol from St. Albert and brother Jack from Edmonton; grandchildren, Ashley, Andrew, Jaime, Warren, Michael and Jordan and many friends and relatives across Canada and the USA. She requested special adieus to her bridge partners.
