A life well live leaves many precious memories.(Psalm 90:12) It is my sincere hope that family and friends will find much comfort in your many memories now and in the days ahead. And may God assure you of his love by giving you his peace.

CandleI am sadden to hear about Karen, it's been many years since we last had contact.
Karen and I worked and played together back in the early 80's at IBP. Karen was a great worker and supported me as a lead-person, when I oversaw packaging in the extension. Karen was a friend, we shared many laughs together at and outside work. I could always depend on her support. My thoughts and prayers go out to her entire family. Peace be with you all.

Karen worked sooo hard and was proud each time she got a job promotion which was often. More importantly, she loved Jesus and she served Him in every way she could. It was also very important to her that her grandson, Terry knew about Jesus, bringing him to church and making sure he attended a Teens Encounter Christ weekend. Karen will b greatly missed!!!

My sister-in-law was a strong woman who loved her family and her animals fiercely. She was called to heaven way too early. I will miss you dear sister. Till we meet again.

Karen was a one of a kind lady. I will miss seeing her. She had a way about her that many did not understand. I thought of her as a strong person that wasn't afraid to stand up to anyone when she felt she was being wronged. Rest in peace, Karen, rest in peace.
