Obituary Adrienne Krasnoff Davidson

Adrienne (Krasnoff) Davidson, 79 years of age, of Delray Beach, FL, formerly of New Britain, CT, died Wednesday, July 20, 2016. She was the widow of Lawrence J. Davidson and the mother of Diana Davidson, Morgan Editor of Saddle Horse Report.

Born in Waterbury, CT, she was the daughter of the late Maurice and Shirley (Platzker) Krasnoff.

Adrienne was educated in Waterbury schools and was a graduate of the Temple University School Of Dental Hygiene. She shared enduring friendships from her childhood and throughout her life. Adrienne was a dedicated supporter of her husband Larry’s political, education and business endeavors. Her greatest source of pride came from her daughter Diana and her accomplishments. Adrienne was always there to support Larry and Diana, whether it was cheering on their champion Morgan horses or more recently Diana’s prized champion Rottweiler Rondo. She was an ardent fan of several sports teams from Larry’s Yale Bulldogs to the NCAA Champion UCONN Huskies Men and Women to the famed Boston Celtics, from the regular season to the playoffs and just last week watching their young prospects on television in the Summer League.

Adrienne showed tremendous strength in her valiant battle with Acute Myeloid Leukemia. Our endless gratitude goes to Dr. Chakra Chaulagain and the wonderful and caring health care professionals at the Cleveland Clinic in Weston, FL. With her daughter Diana by her side, she carried on each day with grace and determination. In addition to her daughter, Diana Davidson of Delray Beach, FL, Adrienne is survived by her sister Rosalie (Stephen) Snyder of Newton Centre, MA and Larry’s sons Lawrence Davidson, Jr. of Madison, CT, and Ned (Carla) Davidson of Southington, CT, and several other relatives and friends. In addition to her parents and husband, Adrienne was predeceased by her brother Lawrence Krasnoff of Van Nuys, CA.

Funeral services will be held at 12:00 noon on Sunday, July 24, 2016 in the Chapel of the Weinstein Mortuary, 640 Farmington Ave., Hartford, CT with Rabbi Michael Pincus officiating. Interment will follow in Beth Israel Cemetery, Jackson St. Ext., Avon, CT. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to The Cleveland Clinic Florida (memo note: hematology research) Attn: Britten King, Philanthrophy Institute, Cleveland Clinic Florida, 2950 Cleveland Clinic Blvd., Weston, FL  33331 or the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
