I remember when I was 11 years old and I first met Karen at Menasha Library. I walked up to her and said "You're Pretty." And after a little while, she handed me a note that said "Karen, You're Prettier. -Karen" She always knew how to make people Smile. She was an awesome friend to me. My Heart goes out to her entire family and other close friends.

I was shocked to read about Karen in the newspaper. I didn't know her by name but talked to her often at the library. Many times she helped me out with whatever it was I was looking for. I will miss seeing her there. Rest in peace.

I was shocked and saddened to hear of Karen's passing. I was a friend to Karen all through grade school (and we had fun times!) and high school. I always had fun whenever I was with Karen. I hope Heaven has a lot of just the right color of M&M Karen!You will be missed!
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.
