Heartfelt condolences go out to everyone. I was lucky to know Karen through marrying into the family and on those family holiday gatherings. I will always remember her kindness. The happiness she brought her mother when she was there was priceless. RIP Karenn I know the is at peace and with all our loved ones.

We are so sorry about Karen’s passing. Jerry and l were remembering how we went by Sis’s house on Terminal Rd one day when we were dating back in 1969. That’s a few years ago! Jerry wanted to visit with Pat and his cousins. During the visit, Karen and Pat, who were maybe all of 16 years old, starting singing a duet of a Loretta Lynn song, “Don’t Come Home A’Drinking With Loving On Your Mind”! They were belting it out and they actually sounded pretty darn good! Funny, feisty, happy memory!

My parents (Jimmy and Anne Strother) could always count on my aunt Karen to take my brother, John, and I in on sick days so they could work. I remember cuddling in her room, full of Elvis decor galore! She’d take us to the mall to play arcade games, and introduced us to 80s colt classics like Willow and Labyrinth, and had a cat named Gizmo! We love you aunt Karen, say hi to daddy, Granny, and Bobby for us.
