Service today for Virginia Davison of Portola Valley

 

A memorial service will be held Sunday, Dec. 18, in Menlo Park for Virginia B. "Ginny" Davison of Portola Valley, who died at home Dec. 1. She was 81.

She was active in the community as a past president of the Woodside-Atherton Auxiliary and on the board of the Children's Hospital at Stanford.

The service starts at 2 p.m. at St. Denis Church, 2250 Avy Ave. in Menlo Park, and will be followed by a celebration of her life at the Sharon Heights Country Club, 2900 Sand Hill Road in Menlo Park, starting at 3:15 p.m.

Born in Spokane, Washington, she grew up in Boise, Idaho. She attended Stanford University, where she met her husband, Orrin "Dave" Davison.

They were married in 1952 and eventually moved to Portola Valley, where they raised their four children, Susan, Kathleen, Mike and Scott.

Survivors include her brother, Ambrose "Ham" Burroughs, her husband, four children, and 12 grandchildren.

The family prefers donations to Pathways Hospice Foundation, 585 N. Mary Ave., Sunnyvale, CA 94085; or to the Lucile Packard Children's Hospital at Stanford.
