I have known Karen for 40+ years, mostly through our church attendance. She was very active at St. Paul's Church, and did an outstanding job as head of the Altar Guild. She made the prettiest arrangements when flowers were not available, and ordered our poinsettias and Easter lilies to decorate the church during their seasons. Karen was warm, loving, compassionate, and a friend to all who knew her. She will be greatly missed, and my condolences go to her husband, children, and all of her family.
