I was saddened to hear the news of Karen’s passing. Growing up, I have found memories of Karen’s parents coming to visit my grandparents. Karen had her mom’s friendly personality. Karen spearheaded two Fingas Family Reunions near Inglis, Manitoba. It is thanks to these events that I have a better understanding of the Fingas genealogy.
I enjoyed receiving her annual Christmas letter and hearing about her trips to the north which is enjoyed very much. She was taken much to soon and will be greatly missed by her extended family. We are sorry we are not able to attend the service. If only there could have been an electronic options available.
With sincere sympathy,
Twyla Mensch, on behalf of her first cousin Gordon, his wife Doris Mensch and daughter Tricia, Langenburg, SK

Shocked and saddened to hear of Karen’s passing. Karen and I attended Inglis high school together. We lost contact with each other as we went to different universities. I remember fondly the good times we had back those many years ago. Whether it was her putting up with my practical jokes, or the romantic teenage school dances and related parties. With her loving personality and intellect, I knew she was destined to make a meaningful contribution to wherever destiny took her.
Karen has left us way too soon.

Karen was a bright, compassionate, and generous woman – a devoted friend to many. I admired and respected her professionally, and delighted in her as a person. I will especially remember her thoughtfulness and the lively expression on her face when there was fun to be had.

Dan Coupal

Karen was a good person who truly did her best to make the world a better place.
I’ll never forget her kindness to me and the help she provided.

A life well lived.
