Joan Dorothy Davidson Joan Dorothy Davidson passed away at 9:53 a.m. January 3, 2018 surrounded by family at Mercy West Hospital in West Des Moines.

Joan, or “Josie”, was a woman with impeccable style and a smile that could light up a room. She was strong in her Catholic faith, enjoyed spending time with her family, and keeping up with current events. She knew how much sports meant to the family and would always have the play by play for our favorite teams!

Joan was a loving mother to Shelley Scott and Tracy Lukavsky; grandmother to seven and great-grandmother to nine. She is also survived by her sister, Joy (Paul) Maske; and many nieces and nephews. Joan was preceded in death by her loving husband, Ivan Davidson; three brothers; one sister; and her parents.
