Karen Marie Burtchaell Obituary
Karen will be remembered as a loving and devoted mother, cherished sister, awesome aunt, fun coworker, and a genuine friend. Although her friends and family were scattered all over the world, they stayed close at heart. She worked for many years at Tosco and was blessed to have great coworkers who remained friends over the years. Karen loved to travel, sightsee and was always up for a road-trip with friends or family. She loved rock n' roll, going to concerts, chocolate, watching sports on TV, and she had a real soft spot for Elvis.
All of those who knew and loved her will remember the strength and dignity she showed in her long, fierce battle with ovarian cancer. Her laughter, smile, humor and general good natured nuttiness will be missed by many.

Mass will be held on Friday, June 20th, 9:30am at St. Philip the Apostle Church, 7100 Stockdale Hwy., Bakersfield, CA 93309.
