Obituary - Jean Eileen Davison

Jean E. Davison

Jean E. Davison died July 2. She was 84. The following was provided by her family.

Jean was reunited with her best friend and husband on July 2 at the age of 84.

Jean was gracefully placed on this earth on Nov. 7, 1936, in Jackson Hole, welcomed by loving parents Phil and Pauline Baux. Later she welcomed three sisters: Carolyn, Mary and Cindy.

Beautiful Jean attended and graduated from Jackson Hole High School.

Just a few short years later she met Jim Davison, her knight in shining armor who became her one and only. They built their life together, adding two handsome boys, Bret and Scott, to the family. Jean was a stay-at-home mom while the boys were in school so she could attend school and sport activities. Once the boys were grown Jean obtained a job as a nutrition specialist at St. John’s Hospital.

Jean was a lady of class and a mother who helped both her boys achieve things they never thought possible. She was funny and kind and always ready with a good story.

Jean loved to sew, knit and crochet. She was always coming up with new projects to make for her family.

One of Jean’s great accomplishments entailed training in Austria with the Olympic ski team as an alternate.

Shortly after Jim’s passing, Jean moved from Driggs, Idaho, to Joliet, Montana, for a few years. Then she moved to Carrollton, Georgia, to be closer to Bret. She lived there for the remainder of her journey.

Jean was a mother of two, a grandmother of five — Nik, Crystal, Austin, Tess and Cooper — and had one great-grandson, Landyn. She also was blessed with three step-grandchildren, Joshua, Kyle and Melissa, and five step-great-grandchildren, Dean, Sam, Robert IV, Ethan and Liberty.

Jean was preceded in death by her husband of many years and her parents.
