Karen Lee Mount

Born: May 13, 1954

Died: June 18, 2018

Karen Lee (nee Knibbs) Mount, 64, of Verona, passed away on Monday, June 18, 2018 at Morris Hospital.

She was born May 13, 1954 in Morris, IL. to Garold and Janet (nee Barger) Knibbs. She graduated from Mazon-Verona-Kinsman High School. Karen continued her education and became a nurse working for Dr. Charles Comfort in Mazon and later Dr. Philomena Francis in Dwight until her retirement. Her family describes Karen as a laid back and sweet lady. They feel she was one of a kind and that God broke the mold after he made her. She enjoyed reading and taking walks. Most of all, she was completely devoted to her family.

She is survived by her children, Amie DePodesta of Coal City, Josh Cooper of Verona and Ashlee (Daniel) LaMarr of Gilman; her grandchildren, Bailey and Delaney DePodesta and Daniel LaMarr; Eric DePodesta of Coal City; siblings, Kandy (Tom) Cromwell of Mazon, John (Sheila) Knibbs of MO and Robert (Carol) Knibbs of Verona; and her step-sister, Debbie (Bill) Okopski of Naperville.

She was preceded in death by her mother, Janet; her father, Garold; her step-mother, Helen Knibbs; and her sister in infancy, Lisa Knibbs.

Memorial donations may be made to the Coal City Fire Department, 35 S. Dewitt St., Coal City, IL. 60416 or Grundy County Community Volunteer Hospice Lending Closet, 518 W. Illinois Avenue, Morris, IL. 60450.
