Karen loved music of all sorts and had a passion for singing.

She would sing and dance for you at will and always helped put a smile on your face. Karen also loved all animals, she loved to travel, play games and laugh.

Karen was such a sweet gal. First time i met her she was smiling and laughing. Used to tease her when you two were dating. Such a sweet Christian gal. She will be missed. But boy did they hang pink banners in heaven for her. Everyone Karen has come home! Such joy to know she has seen Jesus's face.
