Karen M. Hensler Obituary
Karen Marie Hensler, 69, passed away peacefully Monday, Dec. 3, 2018. She was a beloved daughter, sister, aunt, friend and teacher. Karen is survived by her loving mother, Christina Hensler; and her siblings, Keith Hensler, Kevin Hensler, Kathy Salomon, Kerry Hensler, Kris Spittler and Karyl Sarver; many nieces and nephews, including her BFF, Melissa Lingsch; and her devoted friend, Debbie Smith. She was preceded in death by her father, Raymond Hensler; and sister, Karla Jenkins. Throughout her life, Karen impacted the lives of many students as a teacher, tutor and mentor. Her storied career began at St. Agnes (renamed Queen of Angels) in North Huntingdon and continued in the Woodland Hills School District, Wilkinsburg School District and the Renaissance Academy of Pittsburgh Alternative of Hope. She taught and mentored teachers at Seton Hill University, which was where she earned her master's degree. She also served the community as a representative on the East Allegheny School District school board, as an active member of St. Robert's Catholic Church, and as a volunteer for Meals on Wheels. Karen will be deeply missed, but the impact she made on the lives of others will remain forever.
