She was born on December 16, 1949 in Punxsutawney, PA, the daughter of the late Robert M. Shaffer and Margaret F. Burkett Shaffer. For over 30 years Karen worked as an operator and a maintenance administrator for Bell Atlantic, also know as Bell of PA, and later with Verizon Communications. Karen was a member of the First United Methodist Church of Brookville, a member of the Rebecca M.
