Karen Louise Graves

May 6, 1965 — November 4, 2022

Karen Fowler-Graves-Washington born May 6, 1965, in Monroe, LA passed away November 4,, 2022 surrounded by family in Farmersville, TX after a long illness. She was 57 years old.

She was preceded in death by: Father, Roy Fowler; Mother, Geraldine Rhodes; and Sister, Kellie Williammee and other family members.

Mrs. Graves is survived by: Husband/Companion of 33 years, Decarlo Washington of Farmersville, TX; Daughter, Nikki (Brandy) Graves and children of Dallas, TX; Son, Brandon Graves and children of Dallas TX; Sister, Kimberly Fowler and children of West Monroe, LA; Niece, Logan Llanos of Garland, TX; Aunts, Sue Truelove, Wanda McDaniel and Husband James McDaniel of West Monroe, LA; Uncle, Steve (Dusty) Rhodes of Point, LA and Several Nieces and Nephews.

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…
