Born in Massillon, she was the daughter of the late Albert & Bertha (Hartman) Shattuck and had lived in the Stark County area all of her life. She was a 1942 graduate of Massillon Washington High School and attended the University of Cincinnati Conservatory of Music. In 1947 she married George M. Davidson, Jr and they were married 67 years. Ginnie was a wonderful wife and mother and had a gift for hospitality. She cooked delicious family dinners that her grandchildren soon dubbed “1-800- plumb me up”. She was a woman of faith who loved the Lord and was very active in Calvary Presbyterian Church as she and George both served as Sunday school teachers for many years. They later became members of Christ Presbyterian Church where they formed many close friendships especially with their Agape Bible Study.
She was a founding member and past president of P.E.O. Chapter CX, past president of Canton Junior Women’s Club, past president of Timken Mercy Service League, member of Stark County Lawyers Wives Club and Oakwood Country Club.
