Our loving mother, grandmother, sister, aunt's love of life didn't come to an end with her death. Karen passed away on April 19, 2022 at the age of 70 after a hard fought battle with cancer.
The simplest pleasures in life brought great joy to Karen. She loved playing cards, board games and quilting with her family and her friends. She was especially involved in her grandchildren's lives. From spend the nights, secret gardens, and attending sporting events and band events, our Memommie was always there with a big smile on her face.
Karen lived a life full of love for every person she met. She was always a welcoming, gentle soul to all the lives she touched. To know her was to love her.
