Martha J. Davidson

AGE: 70 • Greenville, DE

Martha J. Davidson, age 70, of Greenville, DE, and Naples, FL, passed away August 25, 2016 surrounded by her loving family: husband, brother, sister and children, after a courageous battle with metastatic breast cancer.

Martha was adventurous and loved to travel. She played tennis competitively for 12 years and made lasting friendships. She was a member of the Junior Board of Christiana Care for over 18 years and held many positions including Junior Board President for two years. She was a dedicated wife, devoted mother and grandmother and always put her family first. She was a person who always lifted people's spirits with her kindness and good humor.

Martha was born November 2, 1945 in Macon, GA and is survived by her husband, Edward L. Davidson, Jr. of 39 years, her son, Steven R. Marker and daughter, Julie C. Stedman, step-daughters, Susanne Davidson Parncutt and Dr. Kimberly A. Davidson, her brother, David Jones of Fenwick, DE and her sister, Rena Eller of Hendersonville, TN. She is also survived by seven grandchildren.

Family and friends are invited to at the visitation on Wednesday, August 31 from 9-10:30 am at St. Joseph on the Brandywine Church, 10 Old Church Rd., Greenville. A Mass of Christian Burial will follow at 10:30. Burial will be in the adjoining cemetery.

Although Martha loved flowers, she requested to send contributions in lieu of them to Little Sisters of the Poor, 185 Salem Church Rd., Newark, DE 19713 or to the Sunday Breakfast Mission, P.O. Box 352, Wilmington, DE 19899.
