October 9, 1929 – December 24, 2021
Born to Vernon and Phyllis Fagan in West Vancouver, Tinney grew up in her close family of 5 siblings. Wife to Ken, one of a kind mother to Brock (Lisbet), Scott (Holly), Susan (Tom) LeBarron, David (Elizabeth)…Beloved Nana to her adored grandchildren Raquel, Tyler (Michael), Reece (Erika), Spencer (Haley), Pam (Tim), David (Tanya), Heather (Ted), Joyanne (Mike), Mary (Nana), Angela and her nine beautiful great grandchildren, Auntie Tin to seven nieces and five nephews.
Tinney’s child rearing years were busy with her four children and filled with adventures such as camping, picnics and boating. She also found time to be a bread baker, card shark, sun seeker, prolific knitter and creator of fabulous dinner parties. She made a welcoming home in many places and sharing her bountiful table with friends and family brought her great joy.
Later in life she directed this welcoming energy outside her Comox home and into the community by waving to the students walking to and from school each day – a time that could have been quiet, even lonely – instead became joy filled as a lasting bond was created with countless students and Tinney Davidson became the viral “waving granny”. She and her young friends inspired news articles, acceptance and kindness through their internet fame.
Daughter, sister, wife, auntie, mother, grandmother. The matriarch. The glue to our intricate family puzzle. We feel blessed she graced us with her presence these 92 years. Loved us all and loved by us all.
Thanks to all the loving staff of Stevenson’s Place and Eagleview for their care over the past few years. Dr Hunter, we will forever be grateful for your grace and attention while mom was in your care.
Mom, we’ll keep that warm smile close and freely share it…Love you mom, Tinney, Mrs. D.
