Blanche Olive Davison
December 19, 1915 - September 27, 2012
Blanche Olive (Sayre) Davison went to be with her Lord on Thursday, September 27, 2012 at the Parma Living Center in Parma, Idaho. A memorial service will be held Saturday, October 6, 2012 at the First Baptist Church in Notus, Idaho at 11:00 a.m. Private interment will be at the Lower Boise Cemetery. A viewing for friends and family will be at Dakan Funeral Chapel in Caldwell from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. Friday evening.
Blanche was born December 19, 1915 to Sherman and Inise Sayre of Roswell, Idaho. She was the youngest (and cutest) of eight children. That must have been a wonderful day. She attended 12 years of school in Roswell and following graduation she took clerical and secretarial courses, learning shorthand and business skills.
When she was nineteen, she married David Daniel Davison and they raised two sons, Bill and Dale. They lived in numerous work camps during the Great Depression and worked in the Tacoma shipyards during WWII and later in and around Nampa. She worked as a meat wrapper for Albertsons and Waremart and retired as a member of the meat cutters union.
Blanche was very entertaining. In school plays she had character parts which she was most suited for because she could be herself. Later in life, she volunteered at the Parma Senior Center and played in the Washtub Kitchen Band. She loved family reunions and is now attending the best one ever with family and friends who are also with her Lord Jesus Christ.
Blanche was preceded in death by everybody. She was the last woman standing.
She is survived by 7 grandchildren and 20 great grandchildren and numerous nieces and nephews.
Memorial contributions may be made to the First Baptist Church of Notus, Idaho.
