Karen Ecker Obituary
Karen Kirsh Ecker, April 26, 1937, New York City- December 23, 2013, Portland, Oregon. Karen Ecker died peacefully after a short illness in Portland, Oregon, near her home in Eugene. Daughter of Israel and Anita Kirsh and brother of Carl, Karen graduated from Oak Park-River Forest High School and Northwestern University. Married 23 years to Gerson Ecker, Karen was the devoted mother of their three sons, Michael, Steven, and Paul, and the mother-in-law of Beth Levy, Anne Dailey, and Beth Essex. She had six beautiful grandchildren, Melaina & Ted, Sam & Sarah, Abby & Ruby. Karen's enjoyment of life was infectious, and she lived life to the fullest until the very end. She was loved dearly by her entire family and will be deeply missed. A private service will commemorate her gift of life to her children and the remembrance of joy which she has left for her family and friends.
