Alvera was born December 6, 1931, in Cleveland, Oklahoma. She was the daughter of James Monroe and Clara Mae (Rainbolt) Wilcoxson. Alvera began and completed her education in Cleveland. Alvera was united in marriage to Ernie Davidson on January 22, 1949, in Pawnee, Oklahoma. The couple has made their home in Cleveland for the past sixty-five years raising three sons, Ernie Lee, Leonard, and Thomas. Alvera worked as a checker at Glenn’s Supermarket in Cleveland during the time her kids were in school.
Alvera enjoyed going to Ruidoso, New Mexico yearly with her sisters and brother in law. Of course, the time would also revolve around racing with Ernie. She loved to cook, read the Bible and enjoyed putting jigsaw puzzles together. In 1964, at the Western Heights Baptist Church, Alvera was baptized and gave her life to the Lord. Alvera was also known for her beans and cornbread as well as always concerned about making sure her grandkids had their lunch packed when they went to work.
Alvera passed from this life on Tuesday, September 27, 2016, at the age of 84 years old.
