Karen Marie Swanson, 62, of Marysville, WA passed away the night of January 28, 2013 with her brother, Larry Swanson; and sister, Jan Michael by her side.
Karen Marie Swanson
She was born in Everett on April 3, 1950 to Alden and Edna Swanson. Karen grew up in Marysville and attended the Marysville Schools. She retired from GTE/Verizon after more than 30 years of service.
Karen showed her generosity and love for family and friends by showering them with gifts and 'goodies'. She had many close friends who have continued to show their love and devotion to the family during this time.
If you knew Karen, then you knew that her nieces, Catherine (John) Ambro, and Anna (Martin) Osterwald; her nephew, Jonathan Swanson; and her great-nieces, Emma Ambro and Amelia Osterwald, were the loves of her life. She loved the family traditions. Her greatest gift to us was her assurance she would see us again when we meet in heaven.
Services will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Friday, February 8, 2013 at the Church of Christ, 4226 92nd NE Marysville, WA. Reception to follow. Graveside services at 2:00 p.m. at Marysville Cemetery.
In her memory, donations can be made to Seattle Cancer Care Alliance.
