1942 ~ 2013|
Our beloved wife, mother, grandma and friend passed away peacefully at home, surrounded by her family on December 8, 2013. She was born February 11, 1942 in Malad, Idaho to Wallace & Irene Jenkins. She married B. Alan Sobel on December 5, 1964, later solemnized in the Salt Lake Temple. Everyone who knew Karen would describe her as very loving, so caring and an entertaining story-teller. She always put other people first. Karen was a wonderful woman that had the ability to make you feel like you were the most important person in the world. Karen's family was her priority. She prepared elaborate family dinners and always made the holidays special. All of us will remember her Christmas tradition with the candles. We are fortunate to have known her and will carry a piece of her in our hearts.
Karen is survived by her husband, B. Alan Sobel; her sons, Chris J. Sobel (Cyndy) and Tony A. Sobel (Renel); her seven grandchildren and one great-grandchild.
