Many joyful memories of Karen flood my mind. A few memories to cherish include walking around the property and talking with her, wrapping mountains of Christmas gifts together, and watching her love on Vivian and Selma. She was an incredible friend and loving grandma. She will be forever in our hearts.

I’m so very sorry about your loss. Karen was such a sweet soul & always so kind. We both graduated from MHS & worked at the polls. I have missed her sense of humor on Facebook. I’m sure she is making the angels laugh!
