DAVIDSON, Eileen Mary - Peacefully at home on Thursday, June 13th, 2019 in her 90th year. Eileen Davidson (nee Kelly) of Pembroke, beloved wife of Doug Davidson for over 70 years, cherished mother to Coleen Davidson (Jean- C. Carriere), Brian Davidson (Janice Ovelson), Patrick Davidson (Diane Weeks), devoted grandmother to Zacharie Davidson-Carriere (Kayley Patterson), Darija Davidson, Dreuanah Davidson. Predeceased by mother Rose Kelly (Penny) father Bill Kelly, sister Rose Gaudaur (Kelly), brother in-law Clair Gaudaur. Eileen was the pragmatist in the family, keeping things real. She was known for her generosity, her kindness, her sense of style, her extraverted nature – a great listener, everyone told her their secrets (she always kept the confidence) – her capacity for having fun with her friends and family is legendary. Growing up in Kapuskasing, she was known as one of the “beautiful Kelly girls” – my father always called her Kel. She was a beautiful woman inside and out. Always stylish, in her favourite colours of yellow or red, sporting her signature perfect long red nails. She was the queen bee of her social circle. She was instrumental in creating the “ski-doo gang”, organizing card parties, attending many dances. My parents enjoyed 23 winters in Florida. My mother loved the sun, walking on the beach, and her wish of retiring as a “beach bum” in Florida with my dad came true. The great work of Eileen’s life, is the life she created with each of her actions of generosity, kindness, joyfulness and most importantly love. A Funeral Service will be held in the Chapel of tthe

on Tuesday, June 18th, 2019 at 2 p.m. The family would like to express sincere gratitude to Dr. Weatherston, PA Bethany and receptionist, Brittany. An especially heartfelt thank you to all of her many Caregivers, including her first and longest serving PSW, Lisa Hennessey, the caregivers from Bayshore and Care Partners, the amazing team at Champlain LIN, led most recently by Stephanie Knox, Care Coordinator, and the caring staff at Chartwell Pembroke Heritage Retirement Residence. In lieu of flowers the family request that donations be made to Carefor Renfrew Region. This will honour Eileen’s legacy of generosity and caring.

“Our Birth is but a sleep and a forgetting:
The Soul that rises with us, our life’s Star,
Hath had elsewhere its setting,
And cometh from afar:
Not in entire forgetfulness,
And not in utter nakedness,
But railing clouds of glory do we come
From God, who is our home:
Heaven lies about us in infancy.”

We will always remember Eileen with such fondness. She had a wonderful love of life and baked the best cookies! I loved the fact that you mentioned her sense of style in her obituary. As a child, I always thought she was so glamorous! We lived across the street from the Davidsons for almost 25 years, and they were family. My grandmother adopted Eileen as her honorary daughter, and we spent Christmases with them. On behalf of the Boucher/Gondosch family, we send our deepest condolences to the Davidson family. You are all in our thoughts & prayers.
