Karen M. Kirkland Notice
Karen Michelle Kirkland, 53, of Orlando, Florida, passed away on Sunday, July 1, 2018. Born May 25, 1965 in Alexandria, Virginia, she was the daughter of the late John Phillip Loftis and Wanda Sue Loftis. Karen loved growing up as a military child and living in other countries, and it developed in her a great passion for other cultures and people from around the earth. In her adult life, the internet allowed her to travel the globe and make lasting friendships all over the world. She is survived by her fiancé, Julio Febres Cruz; two daughters, Stephanie Kirkland, and Sara Kirkland; her younger brother, Satchel Loftis, and nephew, Miles Loftis; and five beautiful grandchildren, Lola, Matteo, Skylar, Brooklyn, and Lukas. A beloved employee of Massey Services, Inc. for over thirty years, she accomplished much throughout her life while growing with the company. Many of her coworkers became best friends and family. Karen's passing leaves a legacy of warmth, wit, and wisdom that was truly felt by anyone who met her. She loved the beach, soul music, hot tea, a good political debate, her work, and her family. A Memorial Service will be held in the West Wing of the Maitland Civic Center at 4:30 PM on Friday, July 20.
