Karen was a loving daughter, mother, wife, sister and friend. Her greatest role was being a“Granny” to all the children in her family. Her philosophy was always that the cup was half-full. Her sense of humor was contagious; she laughed easily and made other people laugh. Without judgment, she went above and beyond for all of her family and friends through the best and worst of times. She will, without a doubt, be profoundly missed by all of those who knew and loved her.
