RICHFIELD SPRINGS — Dawanda Jean Davis, 79, who moved here in 1991 from the Mohawk Valley, passed away peacefully on Thursday morning Jan. 2, 2020, in Bassett Hospital.
Dawanda was born on Oct. 15, 1940 in Mohawk, daughter of the late George F. and Vera J. Harter Schaeffer. She was raised in Mohawk and graduated from Mohawk High School with the Class of 1958.
During the 1960’s she was united in marriage to Donald Davis in Mohawk. He preceded her in death.

To all who knew her they will never forget what a caring, humble and generous lady. She will be sadly missed.
