Davison
Phyllis Marie Osterhout Davison, 87, of Madbury, N.H., died peacefully at home on Feb. 21, 2014, surrounded by her loving family.
Born June 24, 1926, she was the oldest daughter to Earl and Hazel Dille Osterhout. She grew up in a tiny town in Idaho with her siblings Dale, Twylla, Demar, Earl and Dorothy.
Davison graduated from Albion High School in 1944, where she received her “A” for playing basketball. After graduating, she worked in the office at International Harvester and at Camp Rupert, a World War II prisoner of war camp.
In 1953, she moved to Riverside, Calif. It’s there that she met the love of her life, Grover, at a New Year’s Eve party. They were married six months later in Las Vegas. Their first date was bowling, something the two of them enjoyed together for many years to come. The family eventually moved to Massachusetts and Japan before finally settling in New Hampshire where they raised Skip, Darla, Tammy and Kim.
Having married a serviceman who was often gone, much of the household responsibilities and child-rearing fell on Davison. She never complained, but took joy from it. Summer days were spent at “our” beach or White Lake. Winter days were filled with playing board games and making snow cream. One Christmas, she even dressed up as Santa Claus and made an appearance at Kim’s kindergarten.
Davison was a Camp Fire Girls leader and volunteered at an elementary school where she was affectionately called “Ma.” In 1978, she and Grover purchased the Chestnut Hill Market in Rochester, N.H. She made many friends in the six years they owned it. After that, she held positions at A. Lipson Fruit Co., Foster’s Daily Democrat and The Friendship Inn.
When she wasn’t working, she liked to do anything “crafty,” from making Barbie clothes to dried flower wreathes. She loved to bake. Homemade doughnuts or popovers on weekends were not uncommon. Her legendary stuffed hot dogs are a family favorite.
She and Grover loved to travel, whether it was driving cross country or cruising the ocean blue. Washington is the only state she never got to visit. Saturday afternoons were often times spent at the mall – if it was purple and fit, it was coming home with her. She never, ever left the house without lipstick. Her style and elegance were timeless.
She is survived by her devoted husband of 58 years, Grover “Dave” Davison; three daughters, Darla and husband Jeff Donahue of Newmarket, N.H.; Tammy and husband Bill Whipple of Rochester and Kim Dustin of Nottingham, N.H.; a son, Gaylen Luke of Riverside, Calif.; a sister, Twylla Pfeiffer of Pocatello, Idaho; eight adoring grandchildren, Darla and husband Johnson Lent, Brandon Whipple, Billy Whipple, Hannah Gagnon, Haley Dustin, Kelsey Dustin, Lacey Luke and Cheryl-Ann Luke; and three great-grandchildren, Kyle Linteau, Aleeyah Johnson and Adrian Whipple.
Davison was predeceased in death by her parents, Earl and Hazel Dille Osterhout, brothers, Demar, Dale, Gary, sister, Dorothy George; and great-grandchildren Jade and Avery.
The family wishes to express their deepest gratitude to Linda from The Homemakers Health Services. She has been our matriarch’s caregiver, daily companion and friend for eight years. Also, sincere appreciation goes to the staff at Beacon Hospice over the last few months for making a difficult time a little easier to understand.
A celebration of Davison’s life was held Wednesday at Cedar Grove United Methodist Church with burial in Cedar Grove Cemetery.
