Karen attended Hillsdale Elementary and Granite Park Jr. high schools and later graduated from Granite High School. She cherished her education and valued the knowledge she gained throughout her academic journey.

Karen often volunteered in various manners, which included serving her church in multiple capacities, most notably as a greeter at the church for 25 years, because church leaders valued her warm welcoming demeanor, and bright smile that made everyone she met feel valued and cared for. She also worked as a primary and Sunday school teacher and was a home teacher with her eternal partner. She was also honored to serve two stake missions.
