Karen Louise (Billingsley) Jamison, a California Surfer Girl turned true Southern Lady, Decorator and Artist, passed away on October 22, 2020 in Dallas, Texas following a brief illness. Born October 1, 1944 and raised in Los Angeles, California, Karen lived in Plainview, Texas, before moving to Columbus, Mississippi. In 2016, Karen moved to Dallas to be near her children and grandchildren. In Dallas she made many friends while volunteering at St. Michael's Women's Exchange at Highland Park Village, tending to her antique booths in Snyder Plaza and the Dallas Design District, and most recently working at The Muse, all giving her great joy. Karen is survived by her daughter Shonne (Jamison) Landry and son-in-law Terry Raymond Landry of Dallas, son Justin Myles Jamison and daughter-in-law Denise (White) Jamison of Rockwall, granddaughters Madison Grace Jamison and Lauren Taylor Jamison, and her precious cat Boo, who is already enjoying his new home with the Priddy family (thank you Dianne and Hervey!). The family would like to thank those who gave her exceptional care at the T. Boone Pickens Hospice Center, Drs. Mark J. Fleschler and Haskell Gill Kirkpatrick, and her neighbors behind The Pink Wall. In lieu of flowers, please consider donating to Faith Presbyterian Hospice (T. Boone Pickens) (www.forefrontliving.org) and St. Paul's Episcopal Church of Columbus, MS. An informal celebration of Karen's life is being planned in Columbus, Mississippi in the Spring of 2021 to honor her memory and legacy.
