Karen S. Davidson
May 29, 1945 ‒ September 08, 2021
Karen S. Davidson, 76, of Bladensburg died unexpectedly in the ICU unit at Knox Community Hospital on Wednesday, September 8, 2021. She was born on May 29, 1945 to the late E.E. Hall and Harriett Hall, graduate of Union High School, class of 1963. She moved from Fallsburg, Ohio in 1966 with her husband Oscar Sr. to Jug Run Road where she has lived the last 55 years.
Karen is definitely no stranger to the Bladensburg community. She and Oscar Sr. raised all 3 of their children there. Later in life she worked for the Mount Vernon News, returned to Bladensburg and worked at Davidson Grocery, cared for small children and stray animals that the kids just knew she would want to keep. Her kindred spirit, sweet voice, huge smile, gentle and caring soul with a heart as big as the sun, she meant so much to so many. She will be truly missed by all who knew and loved her. We know for sure now on Saturday’s this fall Mom, Grammie Hall and Oscar Jr. will enjoy watching OSU football together. “Go Buckeyes”
