Karen loved to have all the family together for meals and holidays. She especially enjoyed cooking, baking, sewing, crafts, gardening, travelling and SHOPPING! Karen was a faithful follower in Jesus and spent many years, when she was in better health, devoted to her church. We are at peace knowing she is finally feeling better and surrounded by her family members whom she has greatly missed.
