The article you’re about to read is from our reporters doing their important work — investigating, researching, and writing their stories. We want to provide informative and inspirational stories that connect you to the people, issues and opportunities within our community. Journalism requires lots of resources. Today, our business model has been interrupted by the pandemic; the vast majority of our advertisers’ businesses have been impacted. That’s why the SC Times is now turning to you for financial support. Learn more about our new Insider’s program here. Thank you.
Kay Tipton Davidson quietly passed away the morning of November 26th in San Clemente, with her beloved husband John by her side. Born February 23rd, 1937, in Peoria, Illinois, Kay moved with her family—father Paul, mother Mildred, and sister Nancy—to Oakland, CA in 1942. An outgoing, lively student, Kay graduated from Castlemont High School in 1955. In 1960, she married John Davidson, a naval aviator.
They moved to Orange County in 1964, settling in San Juan Capistrano in 1972, where they raised three children. Kay loved to travel, volunteer, host parties, and laugh. She doted on her five grandchildren and was a dear friend to many. Kay is survived by her husband John; her sister Nancy Lacy, of Austin, Texas; and her three children and their spouses: Mike and Karla Davidson, of Carlsbad; Noelle and Tom Vogt, of Chino Hills; and Chris and Carolyn Davidson, of Long Beach. A memorial service will be held at 2 p.m. on Saturday, December 9th, at Our Savior’s Lutheran Church, 200 Avenida San Pablo, San Clemente, CA 92672. In lieu of flowers, the family is requesting donations be made on behalf of Kay Davidson to the Junior Diabetes Research
