CULVERHOUSE, Joy McCann - Tampa  
Joy McCann Culverhouse, died peacefully in Tampa on Tuesday, April 26, 2016 after a long and distinguished life. She was 96. Joy was never one to sit idly on the sidelines. She moved at lightning speed, as a pioneering athlete in women's golf, as a business woman and philanthropist, and as wife of the one-time owner of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Hugh Culverhouse, Sr. She was known for her endless energy, her knack for commanding a meeting and her eagle-eye focus for getting to the heart of an issue. Her small stature belied her intimidating force at a boardroom table; she's been described as tiny as a tack and sharp as a whip. "Mrs. C was really a great lady. She was a treasure to us all," said Scott Lynch, a longtime employee of both Hugh Culverhouse, Sr. and Mrs. Culverhouse. "Through her charitable efforts, she had such a positive impact on so many Bay area individuals and institutions. She was truly one of a kind - those who met her will not forget her. We are so thankful for having her as long as we did." Her pioneering days began early, as Joy was one of the first women to win an athletic scholarship when she started as a freshman at Louisiana State University where she played golf as the ninth player on the Tigers' men's squad. She later transferred to the University of Alabama where she played on the Crimson Tide's men's golf team. Joy received her degree in Sociology from the University of Alabama in 1942, a degree which gave her an academic background to later use in her philanthropic work. Joy went on to win the Alabama Women's State Golf Championship in 1941 and 1947 and the Florida Amateur title in 1961. She remained a strong sup-porter of women's golf and established women's golf scholarships at the University of South Florida and Jacksonville University, while her son established one in her honor at the University of Alabama. Joy met Hugh Culverhouse and the two married in 1942 and were married 52 years. Their business success began in Jacksonville where the couple made their home for many years and attained business success through Hugh's work as a tax attorney and their business endeavors in utility companies, oil, orange groves and real estate. Hugh Culverhouse, Sr. purchased the Tampa Bay Buccaneers franchise in 1973. The team began play in 1976 and a few years later the couple made Tampa their permanent home. Perhaps Joy's most famous contribution to the team was her color choice for the Bucs' "creamsicle" orange uniforms. During the years the family owned the team, Joy was the Bucs number one fan - attending games, often present on the sidelines, and championing the players through hard seasons. After the death of her husband and the sale of the team, Joy began actively managing the family's business interests as well as undertaking extensive charitable work. Her legacy includes gifts to charities and non-profits totaling millions of dollars, including gifts to universities, community programs, and women's and children's causes. More information on Joy's philanthropic efforts can be found at www.mccannfoundation .org. The family plans a private ceremony to honor Joy's lifetime. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Joy's honor to LifePath Hospice, Inc., 3010 W. Azeele St., Tampa, Florida 33609, chaptershealth.org .

DAVIDSON, Mary - Inverness  
DAVIDSON, Mary Helen, 90, of Plant City went to her eternal reward on April 20, 2016. Helen was born the second child of four to Eva and Baden Carter in Trenton, Tennessee on April 6, 1926. In high school she was a starting member of the girls' varsity basketball team, as well as a member of the band. Helen met her future husband, Lonnie M. Davidson, at the age of twelve, while visiting her older sister in Keiser, Arkansas. Upon his return from six years service in World War ll and Korea, Helen and Lonnie were married on September 16, 1948. Her role as the wife of an Army officer had begun, taking her to life in Europe and different US states. Helen was known as the "Dolly Madison" of Army wives serving as gracious hostess to generals as well as to the Nation's Senior Ambassador. Her children would be born in different states; Pamela in Texas, Suzanne in Tennessee, and Deborah in Georgia. As an Army wife, Helen had to quickly acclimate the family to new surroundings as her husband's average tour of duty was three years. She would also be a single parent while her husband was away at duty a year or longer. Upon her husband's retirement, she led an active community life. She was golf champion of the ladies golf in Walden Lake, active member of First Presbyterian Church of Plant City where she was recognized as Woman of the Year 2004, and served as Elder 2003-2005. Her hobbies included reading, golf, and bridge. She was a talented still life water-colorist and also sang in Billy Graham's Crusade Choir. Helen will be most remembered as being a devoted wife to Lonnie and caring mother to "her girls". She is survived by her husband of sixty-seven years, Col. Lonnie M. Davidson, her sister, Lucille, of Dyer, Tennessee, and remembered by her daughters, Pamela (Donald) Hotz of Sacramento, California, Suzanne (Louis) DiJiacomo of Downingtown, Pennsylvania, and Deborah Davidson of Santa Rosa, California, seven grand-children, and fifteen great grandchildren. "To God be the Glory". A service of honor will be held on April 26, 2016 at the First Presbyterian Church of Plant City. Viewing will be at 1:00 pm, followed by the service at 2:00 pm with a reception to follow. Burial will take place at the Arlington National Cemetery, Arlington Virginia, at a later date.
