Nead, Karen Marie (Howard)

Karen Nead 54, a resident of Las Vegas, NV passed away December 19, 2016 after a very courageous four-year battle with metastatic breast cancer.

She was the beloved wife of Mark Nead and a devoted and proud mother of two sons, David and Steven. She is also survived by her family, mother Patt; brothers Michael (Renee) and Tim; sister Cheryl; nephew Teri (Katie) and grandnephew Quentin; as well as many other family members, aunts, uncles, cousins and many friends that will miss her dearly.

Her most precious moments were those spent as a volunteer parent in the activities her two sons were involved in.

Karen was born and raised in Albuquerque, she loved the balloon fiesta where she met her husband, a balloon pilot 25 years ago, married him and moved away. She returned almost every year in October, to crew with longtime friends.

Please join us for a Celebration of her Life on Saturday, February 11, 2017 at the Albuquerque International Balloon Museum 1:00 pm.

Karen's favorite flowers were "Forget Me Nots", flower seeds will be available at the Celebration of Life, plant some this spring in her honor.
