Karen and her family lived next door to our family for over fifty years. My husband,John,and I stopped to visit at her house in December of 2013 after my sister,Kay, died. Karen's home was decorated for the holidays and was warm and cozy. She was funny and we laughed and cried while reminiscing about the past. She was always very supportive, helped my elderly mother, and was a good friend to our family. Lots of great memories. I will miss her. Hi to all her kids and families.

So sorry to hear about our classmate and friend, Karen. During class reunions, enjoyed getting together with Karen and hearing about her trip to Finland and comparing notes. Our sympathies to her family and to her sister, Jean. God Bless.

Don & my thoughts are with all of Karen's family at this time. Karen was an amazing woman. Strong in character and humility, she gave so much to so many. Anyone that met Karen, even just once, walked away knowing that they just met one of God's Best Creations! Karen, thank you for being my neighbor, my friend and kind ear whenever I needed someone to chat with. You will forever be in our hearts.

My thoughts and prayers are for Karen and her family. I suspect she and my Bob are singing their favorites in that good company, the Communion of Saints!

Our deepest sympathy, thoughts and prayers are with all of you. Karen was a wonderful lady. We are going to miss seeing her in the summer at church in Crystal Falls. Always looked forward to our visits. She had such a wonderful sense of humor and a great outlook on life. May she go from strength to strength and glory to glory. Blessings
