Loraine Elizabeth Davidson
Loraine Elizabeth (Blakesley) Davidson (age 88) was born Dec. 25, 1929, in Holyoke, Colo., to Glenn and Alice (Goodman) Blakesley. She went to be with her Lord on March 13, 2018, at Imperial, Neb.
She attended school in Holyoke, Colo., and graduated from Holyoke High School.
She was united in marriage to Glen Davidson on Dec. 12, 1948, at the Holyoke Baptist Church, in Holyoke, Colo. They settled on the old Davidson farmstead northwest of Lamar, Neb., and lived there until they built a home south of Lamar in 1959. They resided there more than fifty years and Loraine resided there after Glen’s death until her health precipitated her move to assisted living in Imperial, Neb. To this union three children were born, Ross, Mark and Deon.
Loraine accepted the Lord at a young age and was baptized into His death and was a member of the Holyoke Baptist Church. After her marriage, Loraine and Glen were members of the Lamar Christian Church until its closing. They attended First Christian Church, Holyoke, Colo., until their health no longer allowed.
Loraine was a farmer’s wife and mother, working alongside Glen driving trucks and grain carts during harvest, working cattle, moving equipment and other duties as well as keeping a nice home and raising the children. For many years she participated in all the parties for the children’s school activities. She was a charter member of the Lamar Extension Club and remained a member until its cessation.
Loraine and Glen enjoyed traveling and traveled to Hawaii, England, Scotland, Ireland, Wales, Mexico, Jamaica and the Bahama Islands. She enjoyed visits from her family, particularly her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
Loraine was preceded in death by her parents, husband, Glen Davidson, and sister Holly “Hazel” Lane
