Karen’s friendly, honest and peaceful nature will be incredibly missed. Our families have many great memories boating and camping together that can never be replaced. Thanksgiving became a camping tradition where we shared good company, many laughs and a delicious feast every year thanks to Karen’s hard work. Always making sure everyone around her had what they needed and felt included, Karen has one of the purest hearts I’ve known. She leaves a void that will affect us forever. Our deepest sympathies go out to Mike, Reed, Sam and Sara. Wishing you peace and fond memories during this difficult time.

I met Karen through my sister Charlene and was immediately impressed by her smile. Every time we ran into each other she always took the time to have a quick chat and ask about our parents and the rest of the family. We are so sorry for your loss.
My condolences to Karen’s family. I remember her from High School as being an intelligent and fun loving person who was very kind. She made an indelible impression on me that has lasted. Grace and peace and may you find comfort in her memory.
Thinking of your family. So many fond memories. Your cousin Laurie
