Anna Mae Davison

Anna Mae Davison, 95, passed from this life in Stillwater, on Wednesday, Jan. 2, 2013.  Her services have been entrusted to the care of Palmer Marler Funeral Home of Perry, and will be held on 10:30 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 5,  at the Calvary Baptist Church in Perry.  Visitation will be held from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Friday, Jan. 4. Burial will follow at 3 p.m. at the Roscoe Cemetery in Fairview. The family will greet friends from 6 to  8 p.m. Friday at the funeral home.

Anna was born on Jan. 23, 1917, in Corn, to Ben B. Brown and Flora B. Wichert Brown. She grew up in the Fairview area, and attended Red Top School. On Dec. 2, 1933, in Arapaho, Anna married the  love of her life, Clyde Davison. She is remembered as an immaculate housekeeper. She canned and sewed, and taught these skills to her children. She was an accomplished musician and passed her passion for music down to her children, teaching them to play instruments and use their talents in music. She will always be treasured by her children as a wonderful mother whose love for her children was evidenced by the life she lived for them each day.
