Addie Davidson

Adeline “Addie” Levitt Davidson was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, sister, and caring friend. She died on November 19th, 2021 after a long and courageous battle with the rare, neurological disease PSP. Selfless to the end, she remarkably lived through the worst of the COVID pandemic despite the debilitating disease, making it possible for family and loved ones to visit her and share a final moment to make her ultimate passing more bearable.

She was born to Samuel and Sarah Levitt on June 2nd, 1943 in Washington D.C. While earning her bachelor’s degree from George Washington University, she met her future husband, Edward Davidson who was attending Georgetown University Law Center. They were married on August 22nd 1965 and eventually settled in Framingham Massachusetts in 1972, where they raised three children and four standard poodles.

Addie served as a Director of Marketing Services for the New England food brokerage Deli Dynamics. A member of the industry for 30+ years she was well respected by clients and colleagues alike and was known for her strong work ethic and dedication to the company’s success. A tireless supporter of her children’s endeavors, she was a constant and enthusiastic theatre patron and sports fan. In the early 80’s, she coached her daughter’s soccer team to three straight Bay State League Championships, amassing a 28-0 record over a three-year period despite never having coached or played the game before. She retired from coaching without ever losing a game nor ever fully understanding the rules.

A voracious reader and endlessly curious, she possessed a hilarious dry wit, and was a timeless beauty, often mistaken for Farrah Fawcett. Her many interests included her love of dogs, fitness, sports, music, and the arts. Her favorites included “Seinfeld” and “The Producers” and was the undisputed household “Jeopardy” Champion. She enjoyed hosting celebrations, treasured her many friendships, and loved trips with her husband especially to their beloved Aruba.

Addie is survived by her husband Edward, their children, Scott Davidson and his wife Elyse, Sanford Davidson, Marcie Davidson Foster and her husband Kenny and her brother Edward Levitt and his wife Ellen. She will also be greatly missed by her four grandsons Max, Koa, Jake and Ryan.

The family wishes to thank Sunrise of Wayland and Faith and Family Hospice for all of their support and love they gave to Addie the past few years. The kindness they showed her provided great comfort to the entire family.
