Karin Anne Tarsky Obituary
April 12, 1948 - December 9, 2016 Karin Tarsky passed away peacefully in her sleep after a courageous battle with kidney cancer. Karin was born in Astoria, NY. She went to Smithtown Central High School, worked in Manhattan, and moved to Southern Calif. in 1976. She worked for May Co. in the cosmetics department, and then for Pacific Theatres in their home office for over 23 years. Thereafter Karin worked for different architectural firms. It was in December, 1987, at a cousin's holiday party, that Karin met her soul mate, Fred Tarsky. They were married on July 15, 1990, and had a very close and loving relationship. Among Karin's most admirable qualities were kindness, compassion, and loyalty. She was a very positive and fun-loving person, having acquired many long-standing and close relationships through the years, and therefore having touched so many hearts in her 68 years. Karin will be deeply missed beyond words. As the end approached, and during the final days, Karin was surrounded by her loving husband Fred, brother William, sister-in-law Benita, nieces Alisa and Lindsey, and some of her closest friends. Karin is survived by her husband, Fred; brothers, David Dannenfelser and William Fay; sister, Patrice Kerstetter; sister-in-law, Benita Young; aunt, Edith Nibling; and numerous nieces and nephews.
