Karen Ruth Pool Carlson passed away on April 7, 2014 at the age of 77. She is survived by her children Mark, Bret and Stacy, six grandchildren and seven great grandchildren.
Karen was born in Salt Lake City, Utah. She lived in Bakersfield for forty years and was a female trailblazer in California's produce industry.

She was a director on the United Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Association board and had many other industry affiliations.
We will miss Karen's smile, her spark and generosity, and her stubbornly independent approach to life.
