Sondra L. Blaney Karr 1938-2021

NILES — Sondra L. “Sandy” Blaney Karr, 82, died Friday afternoon, April 16, 2021, at her residence, with her loving family by her side.

Sandy, as she was affectionately known, was born June 29, 1938, in Fairchance, Pa., the daughter of O’Neil and Betty Datko Angeline.

She was a 1956 graduate of Fairchance High School and worked for many years in the produce department for various grocery stores in the area, most recently IGA on Youngstown Road in Warren, prior to retiring.

Sandy was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Champion. She enjoyed flower gardening and spending quality time with her family and friends. Cooking was one of her greatest passions. She loved to feed everyone and everything she could, and no person or stray animal ever left her home hungry, whether they wanted something to eat or not. Regardless if there were two people or a dozen, she made enough for 20, then packed up the leftovers. Sandy was a kind, gentle and loving woman, and will be sadly missed by all who knew and loved her.

She is survived by her two children, Betty J. Mulligan of Niles and David E. (Michelle) Karr of Cortland. She also leaves behind a sister, Bernadette Blaney, of Orangeville; six grandchildren, Greta, Alex, Mason, Emily, Devon and McKenzie; and a great-granddaughter, Allison.

She was preceded in death by her parents; and three sons, Thomas Jr., Jeffrey and Scott Blaney.

In keeping with her wishes, cremation will be taking place and private graveside services will be held at Pine Knoll Cemetery, Warren Township. A celebration of her life will be held for family and friends 1 to 5 p.m. Saturday, April 24, 2021, at her daughter Betty’s residence: 611 Lafayette Ave., Niles, OH 44446.

In lieu of flowers material contributions can be made to the Warren Family Mission, 155 Tod Ave. NW Warren, OH 44485, in her memory.

Arrangements are being provided by the Carl W. Hall Funeral Home, 533 North Park Ave., Warren. This obituary may be viewed and condolences can be sent by visiting www.carlwhall.com.
