Eau Claire, MI

Karen Jean Forrester, 54, was born the first daughter of Randy Eugene and Jeanmary Helen (Wagner) Case on April 20, 1967, in Benton Harbor.

She died Nov. 19, 2021, at Chalet of Niles Nursing and Rehabilitation Center.

Karen attended grade school and most of high school in Berrien Springs, and she graduated from Andrews Academy in 1985. The highlight of her youth was being crowned Miss Berrien Springs 1985 for Blossomtime activities. She loved being in the Blossomtime parade.

She worked for a short time at Meijer and the Benton Harbor Post Office. She loved animals and had adopted dogs – she had a few Great Danes, as well as some who needed her as much as she needed them. Her most treasured relationship was with her sister, Mary, and even though they might have had disagreements, they remained very close to each other.

Karen was preceded in death by her sister, Mary, in 2020; her husband, Michael Ferris; and her companion, Gregory Forrester.

She is survived by her parents: Randy (Dee) Case of Eau Claire and Jeanmary (Robert) May of Ocala, Fla.; her brother, Todd (Carlie) Case of Eau Claire; and her niece, Briana (Josh Smith) Warner of Winchester, Va.

Donations in Karen's name may be made to the Pipestone-Berrien Twp. – Eau Claire Fire Department.

My deepest sympathy to Karen´s family. She was a beautiful woman with a kind and loving soul. I remember her well from all our shared Blossomtime activities in 1985. Her smile radiated and lit up a room. She represented her community with honor and pride and now the angels and Heaven above are lucky to have her. Prayers for all of Karen´s loved ones at this very difficult time. May God bless all of you Kami Kveton (Miss Edwardsburg 1985)
