Sylvia Davidson Obituary, Death – On Thursday, April 6, Sylvia (Gilvarg) Davidson, who had spent her whole life in the Worcester area, passed away at the age of one hundred. She was the daughter of Max and Dora (Shufrin) Gilvarg, immigrants from Ukraine and Belarus, and the sister of the late Eva Narcus and Charles Gilvarg. She was born at home on November 8, 1922. Her parents were immigrants from Ukraine and Belarus. She was the devoted wife of Kenneth Davidson for 63 years until he passed away.
She was also the mother of Linda Sagor and her husband Mark, Jeffrey Davidson and his wife Janet Cady, and Lainey Rabinow and her husband Elliot Levine. All three of her children are married. She adored her grandchildren, Joshua Sagor and his wife Tara, Rachel Sagor and her husband Nick Maselli, Ben Rabinow, Lily Rabinow, Will Rabinow, and Daniel Davidson and his wife Abby Colella.
She also cherished her great grandchildren, Eliana, Isaiah, and Noah Sagor, Max and Sylvia Maselli, and Dorothy Davidson, in addition to her many beloved nieces and nephews. In 1940, Sylvia received her diploma from the Classical High School in Worcester, and the following year, she began working at Narcus Brothers stationers. In 1943, she tied the knot with Ken, a Coast Guard radarman serving on the USS Gloucester, and thus started a life that would be full of children and involvement in charitable organizations.
She started a new work as an operations manager at a toy manufacturer after her children went off to college, and she also began writing her memoir and a number of poems around the same time. She was a bright lady who had immense energy, intellectual curiosity, and a deep sense of right and wrong that was anchored in her lifetime dedication to Judaism. She was devoted to her religion throughout her whole life. She was kind and affectionate, and she cherished her relationships with her family and friends.
In addition to that, her rhubarb pie is considered to be the greatest in the entire globe.
