Christine Davidson

Christine "Chris" Davidson, 69, formerly of Plattsburgh, N.Y., died on April 19, 2014, in Beaufort, S.C., of complications of Alzheimer's disease, with her husband and son by her side.

She was born Jan. 15, 1945, in Plattsburgh to the late Clyde and Helen Miller of Dannemora, N.Y.

Chris was a graduate of Dannemora High School, attended Buffalo State and graduated from the State University of New York at Plattsburgh. She served in a variety of executive secretary positions as she and her husband traveled the country. While raising their child in Virginia, Chris worked as a civilian at Marine Corps Base Quantico, as a computer programmer and later as a health educator. She retired in 2007 and returned to Plattsburgh with her husband. As Chris' illness progressed, they moved to Beaufort in 2012 to be closer to their son and his family.

Chris was a yoga instructor for the last 20 years, and she and her husband loved to sail their boat along the East Coast. They also spent many years exploring New Zealand, Australia, France, Italy, Turkey, Canada, England, the Bahamas and all 50 states together.

She is survived by her husband of 49 years, Larry; her son and daughter-in-law, Nick and Holly; her grandchildren, Taylor and Hannah; and her sisters, Linda Whitlock and Nancy Wheeler.

Chris was predeceased by her brother, Timothy Miller.

Services will be held at 1 p.m. Thursday, April 26, at Dannemora United Methodist Church, 86 Clark St., Dannemora, N.Y.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to the Alzheimer's Association or to the American Cancer Society.
