April 21, 1931 – Jan. 24, 2013

Amelia “Tootie” Basinger passed away unexpectedly on Jan. 24, 2013. She was 81. Amelia was born April 21, 1931, to Galvino and Violet Peña and lived her entire life in Yolo County.

She graduated from Davis High School in 1949. After graduation, she married the love of her life, Thomas Basinger. Tootie and Tommy (as he was called by his friends) remained in Davis where they raised two children, while owning and operating the Davis Nursery from 1954 until retiring in 1996. One of the things Tootie and Tommy enjoyed the most was their annual trip to Hawaii. After Tom’s passing in August 2001, Tootie kept busy with her flower gardening, embroidery and quilting.

Amelia is survived by her daughter Judy Hamman and husband Lloyd, and her son Mitchell Basinger and wife Cynthia. She was fondly referred to as “Granny” by her grandchildren and great-grandchildren who survive her, including Judy and Lloyd Hamman’s son Brian Hamman and his wife Enedelia and their children, Nicolas and Annissa; son Kirk Hamman and his wife Leah and their children, Chloe and Noah; Mitch Basinger’s son Brandon Basinger and his children, Brandon Jr., Lacey and Bradley; and son Justin Basinger and his child, Justin Jr., stepson Brian Ayala and his wife Lauren and their child, Julia, and stepson Bradley Simonson. Tootie is also survived by her brother Otto Wolff as well as several extended family members.

Graveside services will begin at 2 p.m. Friday, Feb. 1, 2013 at the Davis Cemetery, 820 Pole Line Road.
