Valerie Davidson Mason

November 25, 2018

Valerie Davidson Mason, age 90, a native of Frisco City, Alabama, and a resident of Molino, Florida, passed away, Tuesday, November 20, 2018.

Valerie was a former cashier at the Cantonment Winn Dixie Market Place. She started that career prior to turning 70 years of age and was so proud when she was featured in the local news journal portraying the older worker in the workplace. She loved her job, which enabled her to see old friends and acquaintances from over the years. Valerie loved having her family for holidays and Sunday dinners; which often turned into a competition between her and Howard, her faithful sous-chef. Those of you that were fortunate to grace her table know that she was an excellent cook. Her talents weren’t just in the kitchen either. Those caring and nurturing ways were extended to being the ultimate green-thumb lady. She would organize and plant flower gardens for her many friends or help them nurse neglected plants back to life. She especially enjoyed gardening with her special friend and neighbor, Norma Rush.

Valerie is preceded in death by her husband of 70 years, Howard Allen; her parents, Homer and Edna Thompson Davidson; and her beloved daughter, Roxanne Griffith.

She is survived by her two sons, Bobby (Eddiemae), and Roger (Susie); grandchildren, Rob Mason (Phoebe), Greg Mason (Chris), Julie Swank (Sean), Amy Currey (Michael), Matt Lee, and Mandie Presley; great-grandchildren, Austin (Randi), Kylie, Tori, Matthew, Ryan, Brooklyn, Brittany, Cortney, Shane, Janey, Haley, Mallory, Mason and Jackson; brother, Liston Davidson (Betty).

One of Valerie’s greatest joys was the pending birth of her first great-great-grandchild.

Memorial services were held Saturday, November 24, 2018, at Faith Chapel Funeral Home North. Officiating was Chaplin Jason Adams.

Burial was at Walnut Hill Baptist Church in Walnut Hill, Florida.

Pallbearers were grandsons.

Faith Chapel Funeral Home North is entrusted with arrangements.
