Ms. Davidson was preceded in death by her husband, Bud, on Dec. 19, 2004.

She was the mother of Gary (Kathy) Davidson, Kevin (Lori) Davidson, the late Dennis (Margaret) Davidson and Linda (Joseph) Radford; the grandmother of Nicole (Matt) Campos, Dana Davidson and Jamie Radford; and the great-grandmother of Emilia Campos.

A funeral Mass was celebrated Aug. 5 at St. Barbara Church in Brookfield, followed by interment at Queen of Heaven Cemetery in Hillside.
