She was a stay-at-home mom who used her immense talents for crafts, scrapbooking, decorating and event planning to enrich other’s lives. She volunteered countless hours at the school PTO, serving as secretary on the PTO Board. She was humble in everything she did and had a true servant’s heart. Karen also loved to travel with her family, road-tripping and camping all over the United States. She also enjoyed shopping, reading, cooking, and simply spending time with friends and family.
