MARION EVELYN DAVISON

We are sad to announce the passing of Marion Davison, 86, of Vernon, B.C. on May 19, 2015. She was proud to be from the Swift pioneer family of Vernon. Marion was the last surviving child of thirteen children born to Reuben and Mary Swift.

She is survived by her loving husband of sixty-five years, Art Davison; two sons Guy (Lisa) and Todd and daughter Brenda (David). She also is survived by nine grandchildren: Josh, Kori, Leigha, Trevor, Christopher, Brandon, Chelsea, Brianna and Connor and by four great-grandchildren.

Marion was an early member of the Vernon Pipe Band playing the pipes and drumming. She enjoyed curling and was an avid hockey fan watching Art play for the Vernon Canadians. She worked for the T. Eaton Co. and the Hudson Bay Co. at the old store and later at the Mall. She loved golfing, arts and crafts and hiking the hills of Vernon. She instilled a love of music in all of us as we listened to her favourite jazz songs or sang along to pop pieces. She created memorable times for us picnicking in Polson Park or Okanagan and Kal Lakes. She was the glue to having everyone attend family reunions and get-togethers. Everyone loved Auntie Marion! Her garden gave her much happiness; spring planting was her favourite time of year.

Mom will be greatly missed by her family and friends.
