Birth: Jul. 29, 1908
Death: Sep. 16, 2001

Anchorage Daily News September 19, 2001

Soldotna resident DOROTHY PEARL DAVIS, 93, died Sept. 16, 2001, at Providence Alaska Medical Center of natural causes. A memorial service was at Kehl's Forest Lawn Chapel, 11621 Old Seward Highway, with Van Lahmeyer officiating. She was buried with her daughter, Gracie Kost, at the Anchorage Memorial Park Cemetery.

She was born July 29, 1908, in Colorado. From the early '50s until the early '60s, she worked at the hospital in Nome as a cook. In the mid '60s she worked as a cook at a mining camp in Chicken, and in the late '60s she was a cafeteria cook at the elementary school in Kodiak. She also worked as a cook at the Ashton, Idaho, Senior Citizen Center from the late '70s until her retirement in 1986. In 1998 she returned to Alaska and enjoyed cake decorating, sewing, traveling, cooking and ceramics. Her family said, ''Dubbed at Providence as the 'Queen Mother,' Grandma Davis had a wonderful outlook on life. She rarely worried about things beyond her control and knew all things worked out in the long run. Traveling to be with family and friends, and reminiscing about the past brought her great joy. Her sense of humor was extraordinary. She loved joking and watching 'What's My Line?' She was loved by many people, will be remembered always and missed deeply.''

Mrs. Davis is survived by her daughter and son-in-law, Nancy and Harry Carter of Anchorage; sons and daughters-in-law, Loyd and Loralee Davis of Soldotna and Bob and Bernice Davis of Carmichael, Calif.; and many grandchildren, great-grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren. Arrangements were by Kehl's Forest Lawn Mortuary & Crematory.
