Doris Jane ‘D.J.’ Davidson, 78

Doris Jane Davidson, 78, of Pot Nets Park, Millsboro, Del., passed away peacefully Friday, Nov. 28, 2008, in Beebe Medical Center, Lewes, Del. She loved the lower Delaware area and entertained her children with stories of growing up in Bethany Beach, Del., and happily returned to the area upon retirement, spending the last 16 years of her life living in Pot Nets.
Davidson was a loving mother and wife and spent many years raising five children. Her last years were spent with the close companionship of her eldest daughter, Debbie, who selflessly devoted herself to providing her with the care she required while allowing her the independence she craved.

Davidson was preceded in death by her parents, John Elwood and Elsie Simpler; her husband, Robert Davidson; and children, Bruce Davidson and Judi McDermott. She is survived by her daughters, Deborah Harvey and Brenda Voigtritter; and her son, Robert G. Davidson III.

A funeral service will be held Saturday, Dec. 6, 2008, at 2 p.m. at the Chapel of Melson Funeral Services, 32013 Long Neck Road, Millsboro, Del., where friends may call after 1 p.m. Interment will be in St. George’s Cemetery in Clarksville, Del. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorial contributions to Best Friends Catnippers, 35135 Breakers Street, Long Neck, DE 19966.
