Obituary for Claudine Davidson (Gillon)

Great is Thy faithfulness
Morning by morning new mercies I see
And all I have needed Thy hand hath provided
Great is Thy faithfulness
Lord unto me


Claudine Gillon Davidson was born on May 15, 1941 of Iredell County in Statesville, NC. She was born to James “Jim” Gillon and Myrtle McMullen Gillon.

Claudine was a member of the Belmont Church of Christ, which is now the Highland Acres Church of Christ. She loved to sing and had a beautiful “Tenor” voice.

Claudine was a graduate of Unity High School where she loved to play basketball and softball. Claudine attended Diggs Beauty School in Richmond, VA where she earned a Cosmetologist Certification.

Claudine married Gary Davidson on October 13, 1974 in York, SC. The couple made their home in Statesville, NC. She had one daughter, Regina Gillon Rucker.

Claudine and Gary owned a ServPro Fire & Water - Cleanup & Restoration™ franchise. Their company provided Residential and Commercial Restoration Services to the Iredell County community. Claudine worked 20+ years in the Textile Manufacturing Industry. She retired from employment in 2005.

Claudine enjoyed cooking, decorating, entertaining and landscaping her lawn. She pampered her guests and prepared food as if she was feeding a multitude. All that you didn’t eat she would pack it up for you to take home. She would scour stores, (her favorite, YokeFellow Thrift Store) for things no one else could see the beauty in it to adorn her home. She worked in her yard to create a relaxing retreat. Her favorite hobby was “Yard Sales”, buying and/or selling, she enjoyed every outing.

Claudine departed this life on Wednesday, January 9, 2019 at the Gordon Hospice House of Statesville. She is gone from our presence now but will remain in our hearts forever. “Claudine, “we will miss you”.

Claudine was preceded in death by her sister Joyce Carolyn Gillon, two brothers; George Gillon and Franklin D. R. McMullen, her husband Gary Davidson, and her daughter, Regina Gillon Rucker. She leaves to cherish her memories: one sister Mary McMullen Morrison of Baltimore, MD; one brother Harold (Mae) Gillon of Statesville NC; her son-in-law, Lloyd Rucker of Lilburn GA; two grandchildren Matthew Rucker and Melanie “Amaris” Rucker of Lilburn GA; one Uncle Stanley (Glenna) McMullen Sr. of Gloucester, VA; a dear friend Cathy Bradshaw; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, church family, and other loved ones.
