I just today learned of Karen's passing and was sad to hear that she is gone. Karen endured a lot in her life and she certainly earned her angel's wings. I know she's wearing them proudly. My condolences to Christie and Shane and their families.

I have missed our reading group on Tuesday evenings with Karen and other Friends since the COVID. I kept in touch with cards going back and forth and always enjoyed hearing from her. Very glad I had visited her at Accura in the past 2 weeks! She loved her family and her kitties! She will be greatly missed. Loved her smile and humor!

I am so glad God crossed Karen’s & I’s paths. Karen was a beautiful woman who loved her Lord. She always was a blessing in our woman’s group in church. Karen really knew how to make & bake desserts. I have missed seeing her there but enjoyed visiting her at Accura & watering her plants. She has now gotten her angel wings she so deserved. Keep a watch over us Karen! Prayers go out to her family.🙏🙏😇😇🦋🦋

She carried me inside her for 9 months then raised me for 19 years. Even thou we were 1200 miles apart she was still my mother.
