Upon retirement Karen finally moved out to the country where her heart was meant to be. Gardening, cooking, taking care of her lovely plants and the many sweet dogs that she rescued throughout the years. Her animals meant so much to her and they feel her absence daily.
Memories from childhood was when… She would chew gum behind her daddy's back and would get caught knowing she would be in trouble when she got caught. AND when… Trying to sneak into the house after curfew with their donkey (Snuffy) sounding his alarm that would wake up the whole house.
She loved life to the fullest, always had a joke, and had a crazy laugh that would make everyone laugh with her. She was more than a classmate/co-worker/friend; she was family to anyone she met or that met her.
We Love you Karen.. Keep a watch over us ALL
This is not goodbye but we will see you later…
