November 28, 1952 – June 29, 2020
After a long hard fight with cancer, Karen passed away on June 29 at home with her 3 boys. If you knew Karen, you know that she fought hard.
We were incredibly blessed to have Karen in our lives, and she made all of us better by just being herself. She could light up a room with her laugh and smile, and she loved to chat with anyone and everyone she met. Her ability to care, listen, and make those around her feel important, never faltered. She would start conversations with complete strangers who, soon after, became fast friends. Simple things like going to the store resulted in an adventure for Karen. She’d be gone for hours meeting new people, having a chat and returning home happy.
Karen loved to read everything, whether it was mystery or art books, political articles or biographies. She loved to talk about all of the new things she learned. She had a strong passion for music and art and even aspired to become an artist herself.
If you were lucky enough to have known Karen, you would remember her innate ability to make all of those around her feel special no matter what. Karen was gentle, welcoming and mischievous, which only made those who knew her love her more. She was an amazing mother, a loving partner and wife, and a true friend. She will be missed every day by all of her family and friends. Her smile and her laugh will always be in our hearts.
Karen hugged everyone that crossed her path, so in her honour, please hug your friends and family and tell them you love them.
In lieu of flowers donations to the BC – Yukon Cancer society would be much appreciated.
The family will be holding a small private celebration due to current public health.Obituary
