Kay L. Davis
Kay Louise Davis passed away May 16, 2021 in Gordonville, PA at the age of 75, after a short illness. She died peacefully at home.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Nola and Francis Clifford Davis of Fairfield, CA., who had previously lived in Menlo Park, CA for many years . Kay is survived by her brother, Cliff Davis, sister-in-law, Eva of Fairfield, CA and nephews, Daniel Sroaf of Placerville, CA, David Sroaf of Mendocino CA and Eddie Davis of San Mateo, CA. Also, grandnieces Taylor Davis of San Mateo and Allison Sroaf of Placerville, CA.
Kay grew up in Menlo Park, CA where she attended Hillview Grammar School and Menlo-Atherton High School from 1960-1963. After graduation she attended the College of San Mateo for a year and then Arizona State University in Tempe, AZ., where she graduated with a degree in Elementary Education. Upon graduation, she taught school in the Los Angeles area for a year and then moved back up to the Santa Clara, CA area where she worked in Human Resources for Linear Technology for many years.
Kay loved to travel, making many trips to Europe over the years. After her father passed away, she felt blessed to be able to take her mother to Europe, sharing the places she had grown to love with her. Kay then spent many years traveling to Aruba, where she enjoyed the beach and snorkeling. On the way home she always stopped at the Amish country in PA which became a favorite place for her to visit. She grew to love the Amish people and their way of life and they, in turn, grew to love her. December 2016 Kay moved from California to the Amish country.
In her younger adult life, Kay was an avid tennis player, entering many tournaments. She also loved to ski, sail and doing crafts, such as knitting and crocheting.
For many years, she had a pet parrot named "Happy". After Happy died, she rescued cats from around the neighborhood and they became her "kids". Several years ago, she rescued a dog from Aruba and brought it back to the States. "Annie" became another one of her "kids".
Kay was a generous, thoughtful and wise person in many ways. Her friendship will be dearly missed by those who knew and loved her.
