Victoria Laura Davis was born in Kula, Maui Hawaii in 1932 to Annie Cravalho. She moved at an early age with her younger brother and sister to Honolulu when her mother divorced to find employment to support the children. There she was an eyewitness to the tragic bombing of Pearl Harbor. Her mother met, fell in love and married a US Navy sailor Robert Lee Wilson after meeting while dancing the “Jitter Bug” at the USO. They were always great dancers together and he adored and supported her kids fully. Following the war the family sailed on a Navy transport landing in San Francisco. They settled in Long Beach California where Vickie met the love of her life Bobbie Joe Davis. They were married in 1950 in Yuma Az. The family grew when Darleene was born followed by Glenn and Karen born while Bobbie Joe was stationed in Korea with the Air Force during the war.
The family lived in the Long Beach area where the children were raised followed by a move to Cerritos where they lived until moving into their current home in Riverside in 1988. Bobbie Joe was a career telephone man proudly employed by GTE and really enjoyed retirement. They had an RV and got to travel to several of the National Parks including Mt Rushmore and Niagara Falls. They both enjoyed all their Grandchildren immensely always attending school and sports events. Easter, Thanksgiving and family reunions were held at Vickie’s and everyone was always welcome.
Following the passing of Bobbie Joe in 2000 Vickie has lived alone in her home where she had several loving and caring neighbors. She attended mass at St. Catherine’s in Riverside followed by going out to breakfast with her good friends, Mila and Gil and Dominic and Ilze who would pick her up for Mass and bring her home.
Vickie loved her plants and yard including her prized Orchids. Her passions included, anything involving her kids and grandkids, scratching Lotto tickets, trips to the gaming casinos, shopping and living the life of Aloha. In recent years she spent the Mondays after Memorial Day and Veterans Day rolling the retired gravesite flags for storage until the next holiday at the Riverside National Cemetery.
Vickie was predeceased by her husband Bobbie Joe, her parents Annie and Robert Wilson, and her sister Shirley Ydrogo.
She is survived by her brother William Cravahlo and spouse, Arline; daughter Darleene Leslie and spouse David, son Glenn Davis and spouse Suzy and daughter Karen Cox. She also leave behind 7 grandchildren and two great grandchildren. She leaves many loving nieces and nephews, friends and neighbors.
Vickie is loved by many and will be missed by all. We are rejoiced she is now in heaven reunited with Bobbie Joe.
