Karen (Jablonski) Green Obituary

On Saturday, Jan. 9, 2021, Karen "Kare Bear" Jablonski Green, beloved wife, mother and "Grams," passed away at the age of 67 at her home in Linwood, N.J.

Karen was born on Feb. 15, 1953, in Peckville, Pa., to Anne and Jacob Jablonski. She attended St. Patrick's High School in Olyphant and graduated from Marywood Seminary. She graduated from Geisinger Nursing School, earning her diploma as a registered nurse. She was an active member of her community coaching her girls in sports and leading the local Girl Scout troop.

Karen's family meant the world to her. Together with her husband and best friend, Michael, they raised two daughters, Corey and Jaimie. They happily welcomed a grandson, Rhys, who lit up their lives even more. Karen loved talking to and visiting her sister, Gloria, and laughing with her son-in-law, Matt. Karen was enthusiastic and kind. She was always up for an adventure with her family. Her many interests included trips to wineries and breweries, participating in the family fantasy football league, cheering on her favorite teams in person and on television, spending time in Myrtle Beach, playing the lottery, creating new family traditions and watching Hallmark movies. Karen loved crafting and was always knitting or learning a new skill so that she could make the perfect handmade gift for her family and friends. She was always willing to lend a hand and would drop everything to help someone in need. She never forgot a special occasion and always sent a card.

She lives on through her husband, Michael; sister, Gloria Jablonski; daughter, Corey and son-in-law, Matt; daughter, Jaimie; grandson, Rhys; and numerous extended family members including puppies, Salsa and Sophie ("the ladies").

Graveside service and burial was held Thursday at Zion Cemetery, Egg Harbor Twp. In lieu of flowers, please make donations in Karen's memory to or the Community Foodbank of New Jersey.
