Margaret Karen Blair (nee Shutt)
July 22, 1944 - June 25, 2013
Karen, beloved partner, sister, mother, friend and Nana, died peacefully at her home in Myrtle Beach, SC. She loved the beach, the sun, her garden, her sobriety and, most of all, her Nate. Friends and family alike remember her kindness, laughter and warmth. Our world is a little less sunny without her. Karen was the eldest of eight children born to Margaret and Harsey L. Shutt, Jr. She is survived by her companion of over 20 years, Ed Maiello; her daughter and son-in-law, Melissa and Jay Livingston; her grandson, Nate Livingston; brothers Harsey L. Shutt III, Michael Shutt and Martin Shutt; sisters Joan Hargadon, Alice March and Kathleen Schatz, their families; and her many nieces, nephews and cousins. She is preceded in death by her son, Kevin Blair, her parents and her brother, Patrick Shutt.
A memorial service and celebration of Karen's life will be held on Sunday, July 28, 2013 at 1PM at St. Benedict Church at 2612 Wilkins Ave., Baltimore, MD. Reception will follow. Memorial donations may be made to Mercy Care Hospice of Myrtle Beach (www.mercyhospice.org) or to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (www.cff.org).
