Dorothy Marie Davidson

Feb. 13, 1925

Feb. 11, 2017

Dorothy, a longtime resident of Sparks, died in the home of her devoted youngest son on February 11th. She was 92 years old.

Dorothy was born in New Rochelle, New York in 1925 to John and Mary (Keenan) Coleman, of 611 Main Street, Irish immigrants from County Galway. She was a pupil at Blessed Sacrament School and a graduate of Isaac E. Young High School, where her lovely singing voice and vivacious spirit brightened musical productions. She was a WWII veteran, a physical therapist in the Women's Army Corps. She and her husband Earl, a career U.S. Army NCO, lived in New Rochelle, Avenel, New Jersey, Okinawa, Honolulu, and Dublin, Ireland, raising six children. She was a career federal civil service transcriber. In 1989 Dorothy and Earl retired to Sparks. She was a talented oil painter and enthusiastic volunteer in local civic and community events. For many years she was a member of the Sierra Nevada Celtic Society and the Scottish American Military Society, and always a faithful parishioner of Immaculate Conception Catholic Church.

Dorothy is preceded in death by her baby sister Elizabeth, her brother John, her husband Earl and her beloved daughter Patty. She is survived by her sons Randolph (Elisabetta), James (Joann), Robert, and Kermit (Sharmila), her daughter Virginia, eight grandchildren and six great-grandchildren, and her son-in-law John Howett (Tanya). There will be a private service for family.

We will love her forever. Mom's ashes will rest beside Dad at the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific, Honolulu, Hawaii.
