Guidotta Davis

Nov. 3, 1916 — Nov. 18, 2013

Long time Placerville resident Dot Davis passed away at her home Monday evening, Nov. 18, 2013 at the age of 97. She was born Guidotta M. Griggs Nov. 3, 1916, to Mark and Bell Griggs in McCook Nebraska. She was the fourth of six children. Her mother called her Dottie, a name that stuck with her through life.

Dot and her younger sister left Nebraska in the mid 1930s and took the train to Oakland, Calif., where she met and was married on June 7, 1937, to Wallace Davis, who had recently come to California from Iowa with a friend. Her sister married Wally’s friend. In 1947 Dot and Wally moved to Placerville with their two small children and opened a business on upper Main Street called the Donut Hut. They retired and sold the Donut Hut in 1976 and spent several years traveling with their pickup and travel trailer. In 1984 they moved to the Crestview Mobile Home Park on Mother Lode Drive. Wally passed away in 1992 after more than 55 years of happy marriage. Dot continued to live at the same location until her recent passing.

Dot is survived by her two children, Donna Rae Thomas of Rancho Cordova and Michael Davis of Sandpoint Idaho; four grandchildren; and seven great-grandchildren. Funeral services will be private but a memorial service will be held at a future date to honor Dot’s long and happy life. Donations can be made in her honor to the Snowline Hospice by calling 621-7820 or going online to snowlinehospice.org.
