COWIE, Karen Beverley
May 31, 1938 – November 21, 2012
Surrounded by her family, Karen Beverley Cowie passed away peacefully November 21, 2012. Karen was the only child of Burnaby pioneers Margaret and Christian Svendsen. Karen is survived by her husband of 54 years, Peter Cowie; 4 sons: Rod (Rita), Chris (Susan), Allan (Monika), Bruce (Dale); Two grandchildren Heather and Jack Cowie; and two step grandchildren Geoff (Irene) and Michelle Korinetz. To Karen, family was the most important part of her life. Special thanks to Dr. Ken Appleby and the staff of Royal City Manor for the excellent care and attention that Karen received. In lieu of flowers please support Vancouver Special Olympics or minor Lacrosse, both which were near and dear to her heart. Private family service to follow.
