CHIPLEY — Ms. Lotta Davis turned 101 years old on April 8 and friends, family and church associates flocked to Chipley’s First Presbyterian Church on Sunday afternoon, April 7, for the reception honoring the special Chipley lady.  

The church sponsored this historic and momentous  occasion.

The honoree retired as a classroom teacher from the Washington County School System, while her late husband, Joe Fern Davis, owned and operated the town’s popular attraction, The Vance Theater.

Her daughter, Cheryl and husband, William Suarez, attended the lovely, and lively, birthday celebration for the centenarian.  

Ms. Lotta, as she is affectionately known, mixed and mingled with the host of visitors.   She greeted and chatted with each one with this salutation; “Hi, I am 101 years old and I am glad that you came to see me and to help me celebrate!”

Celebration indeed was the mood of the throngs of well wisher who came to visit with this unusual and loving lady.
