Karen, your generosity is beyond expectations. I remember coming to work without my eye glasses; I cannot do without them. Without any hesitations, you drove to Danbury and bought me not only one pair but two pairs of readers. 😥You touched my heart. I gained confidence whenever I'm scheduled to work with you in any unfamiliar areas. A true team player. you are always busy ; has to get something done. I still listen for your voice over the walkies. Heaven received another angel. Too young , but god had a better plan. You're a selfless lady. Sleep In Peace my friend ❤
My prayers and sympathy to the entire family of Karen..🙏🙏

From the moment I met you, I knew you were special. Your compassion and genuine concern for the well being of others was more than obvious, you always seemed to consider the needs of others over your own. You brought an energy into the room that was infectious and refreshing. The world is a better place for having had you in it, even if for such a short time. You will be missed.

I was so sad to hear of Karen’s passing. Life is so short. She was too young!
I feel that my Mom was So very blessed to be in Karen’s care at Maplewood NEWTOWN. It seemed like I always saw Karen on the 2nd floor, close by to my Moms apt #209. I knew the first time I met her that she was very special and so loving. So Very caring.
I knew because she always reached out to me to let me know how my Mom was doing! Everyday. ♥️
Even though I was there almost every afternoon visiting, I was taken back how she took the time (emotionally & w such empathy) to connect to me and care for my Mom.
I was told by someone that Karen should get extra praise & recognition for she always went above & beyond for my Mom and ALL the residents.
She was very special! Her bright light will be missed by all.
I want to send my deepest condolences to her sister Gigi and brother Karl and extended family. I’m so content knowing I saw her in August at the Big Y and we had a lovely catch up.
I feel blessed that I got to know her through Maplewood NEWTOWN 🙏🏻💕 please Keep Karen’s deep love for others tucked away in your hearts forever! We all should “walk Karen’s walk!“💕
Karen was an angel on earth and now an angel In Heaven above♥️🙏🏻RIP Karen Big Hugs to you♥️xo
