Avid gardener Leona Davidson dies at 86

Leona Kohler Davidson, a 15-year resident of Wrangell, died Nov. 22, at age 86. She was born May 30, 1935, to Leo James Kohler and Delia Nikolai, in Talkeetna.

Davidson moved to Wrangell in 2006 after retiring as a statistician for the Alaska Native Medical Center in Anchorage.

She was an avid gardener all her life. "We did moose hunting trips and fishing trips, camping too," her family wrote.

She believed in God and was a spiritual person, but was not affiliated with a church.

Her husband, Willis Davidson, died in 1974.

A granddaughter, Samantha Lane Davidson, passed away in 2016.

Survivors include daughters Linda L. Davidson, Debra A. Davidson and Pamla S. Davidson; son Gregory A. Davidson; and three grandchildren.

No services are planned. The family will take Davidson's ashes back to Talkeetna.
