Dannette Davidson was born to Francis and Sophie Davidson on March the third, 1949 in Healdsburg, California. They relocated to Renton, Washington where her and her two brothers attended school. She had many great times going to movies, listening to music and dancing, cooking, being creative and meeting new people.

After graduating from Renton High School in 1967, Dannette and James Dale Fernan eloped to Reno. Not too long after that she was gainfully employed at the Boeing Facility in Renton, Washington where she drove a forklift and was graced with two beautiful daughters. She later retired and spent her days in nature lovingly caring for her pets and her family which meant so much to her. Always smiling, laughing, and making jokes. She just loved everyone and everything in her life.

In 1985, James and Dannette parted ways and she relocated to Enumclaw, Washington where she raised horses and peacocks. She also always had cats, dogs and birds to make her smile. But she was always chasing away those pesky slugs getting into her plants. She remained there until 2002 when she relocated to Soap Lake, Washington to be closer to her family. Dannette then moved to Idaho for a few years before returning to Eastern Washington where she worked at the senior center kitchen in Everett meeting new and exciting people every day. Then returned to Ephrata to be under a watchful eye.

She loved being crafty and making special items for people. She also loved gardening and playing card and board games. Her friends at TOPS and Seventh-Day Adventist Church in Ephrata were very special to her. She loved talking and helping people.

After three and a half years residing in Ephrata, she was moved to Prestige Senior Living in East Wenatchee where she passed peacefully on September 16, 2018. She is survived by two brothers; Dan and Frank, two beautiful daughters; Jana Wiley of Great Falls, Montana and Stephanie Petersen of Everett, Washington as well as three lovely grandchildren; Jacob and Tanner Petersen and Courtney Wiley. She was and is loved by all that knew her. Please express your thoughts and memories for the family at www.nicolesfuneralhome.com. Arrangements are under the care of Nicoles Funeral Home of Ephrata, WA.
