  1. So so sorry to read of the loss of your Mom, Grandma, Sister, Aunt. Karla and I spent many hours at Zumba classes at the Curves in Broken Arrow. We also enjoyed the occasional breakfast with other Zumba class members. She was helpful to me as I went through a 2nd round of breast cancer. Such a good listener….and she could always make me laugh. She leaves behind lots and lots of wonderful memories.

  2. I have so many wonderful memories with Karla. She was always one to make a smile come to your heart. I am sorry for the loss of your sweet Karla.

  3. We loved Karla at Curves! I enjoyed her zeal for life. She Always had a smile and uplifting word. Many sweat filled hours shaking our Zumba and talking food while strengthening our muscles. Wonderful memories……
