I met Karen and her dear friend Mary Gorges in bible studies at Appleton Alliance Church years ago. Her strength dealing with all her health problems was an inspiration. Karen was so kind, faithful and beautiful inside and out! I always loved her dark hair! May God's peace be yours, which is greater than any human understanding, now and always.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.
