I knew Kari for many years at the Nevada Water Science Center and she was always smiling, helpful, and courteous in helping me with all the issues that needed resolving. She always brought fruit to share with everyone when she went to California, and she always talked with pride about her family and what everyone was up to. She also talked about her bowling nights and her cats, which could end up in a 30 minute conversation!

Even just in retirement it was an adjustment to get used to her not being near the front office. It was a pleasure to chat with Kari and she never complained about all the issues I brought her to solve, and virtually all she solved.

I will miss her smile most of all. I send my deepest condolences to her family and friends.

I knew Kari through work. When she would come to southern Nevada, we would get together for lunch or dinner. I enjoyed spending time with Kari because she always had a smile on her face and was a very kind person. She spoke so kindly of her friends and family, which showed how much she cared for everyone. My deepest sympathies to you. She will be missed.

I knew Kari for many, many years at the Nevada Water Science Center and worked with her in the IT section. I always appreciated her bright smile, stories about her cat, and how much she loved her family. My heart goes out to you all.

Kari would periodically travel to Henderson to serve as our administrative "substitute". I remember her as always being helpful, upbeat, and willing to share a smile and a good laugh.

Our loved ones are never truly gone; they live forever in our heart.
May loving memories of Kari bring you peace, comfort, and strength.

Kari was one the first co-workers I met when I started at the USGS in 2011. From that time until her retirement, I was always so thankful for the opportunities I had to chat with Kari, whether in her office, the breakroom, or chance meetings in the hallways. She was inquisitive and was always willing to share the latest in her life, whether a trip up to the Chico area to visit family, bowling, or her cat's latest shenanigans. From the day I started, she was always, always helpful in whatever admin-related task I needed assistance with, and I can add that without exception, she was always smiling, something the world could use a lot more of.

I'd like to pass along my deepest sympathies to the family.

Kari was so helpful to me when she worked in the Admin Unit at the USGS. I won't forget her laughter, friendship, help on so many tasks, and my promise to her that someday I'll visit Quincy, CA, a town Kari was fond of. My heartfelt condolences to Kari's family - she has always been missed since leaving the USGS and won't be forgotten -

I met Kari in 1998, working for the USGS. We ate lunch together all the time, becoming very good friends. I was so very lucky to have met her and even more fortunate to have gotten to know her over the years, I will miss my friend. My heart and sympathies go out to her family, who she loved so very much,

I am so sorry for your loss. Kari was a ray of light, and she had a fantastic sense of humor. Her positivity, and laughter were a blessing to those that knew her.

I always admired her deep love of family. She loved you with everything inside of her!

I had the pleasure of working with her. I will always remember her sunshine personality.

Kari was a real ray of sunshine at the USGS! She always had a smile on her face and she loved to talk about her family, who she dearly treasured. She was loved and will be missed dearly. Here’s a photo of Kari and I. In the photo I’m presenting her with her retirement plaque.

My sincere condolences to the O’HAIR family.💕
Kari was a true friend to me at USGS! I dealt with Kari on many different levels; she was always there for us everyday. She often spoke of her weekend trips with her cat to California to see family; that was very important to her. Kari and others even started a ladies bowling team for my restaurant Sierra Joes. She was one the first certified forklift drivers in our office. She will be missed here in Nevada.
