Sally Ohst Thiemann Davis, born July 15, 1898, celebrated her 103rd birthday. She was born in Manistee, Mich., to William and Bertha Stresing Ohst.

Sally was a star high school basketball player and enjoyed traveling to basketball tournaments.

She went to work in Detroit at the Union Guardian Trust Company where she met and married Harold Thiemann in 1920. The couple moved to Hartford, Conn. where she enjoyed golf and activities in her church. Mr. Thiemann died in 1955 and Sally moved to St. Petersburg in 1963.

In 1974 she married James Davis and enjoyed vacation cruises and trips back to Michigan to see her family. She celebrated her birthday with her niece Marjorie Patterson, her great-nephew Mark Patterson, and 30 members of Grace Lutheran Church.
