  1. Karen was a very special person which was always giving to her family and friends. She will be missed by all. Her children and Jacky will miss her smile and laugh most as she portrayed
    it most of the time.
    We will miss her also but so thankful she is not hurting.
    Our thoughts and prayers are with each of you in the difficult days ahead.


  2. I’ve been friends with Karen since we were seven years old.
    We either talked or in later years texted each other weekly.
    She was a special person who always put her family first. They were her pride and joy.
    She will be truly missed by all who knew her.
    Our thoughts and prayers are with Jacky, Karri, Lisa and Sonja and their families and her sisters, Joyce and Diane.
