Georgia L. “Tootie” (White) Davis was born on August 24, 1938, in Hominy, OK. At a very young age her family moved to Silverton, CO where her father worked in the gold mines and mills around the Silverton area. After graduating high school Georgia joined her family, who had moved the year before, in LaSal, UT. While there she met Robert Davis who had also grown up in Silverton and whose family had also moved to LaSal to work for the uranium mines. Robert and Georgia were united in marriage on June 20, 1959 in Moab, Utah. To this union three boys were born, Robert, Charles, and Donald.
In 1961 Robert accepted a teaching position at Lodgepole Public Schools and he, Georgia and baby Robert relocated to Lodgepole “for a few years”. As the family grew with the addition of Charles and Donald, Lodgepole became home and soon Georgia began working at the Coffee Cup Café as a cook. She also worked at the library in Lodgepole and cooked at the Lodgepole Public Schools. Later she owned the Snack Shop for several years. After selling the Snack Shop she began working for McDonald’s in Sidney. Often saying she came with the building, she worked at the McDonald’s from the day it opened until she retired.
In later years she enjoyed spending time with her family and especially grandchildren.
