Sorry to hear of Karen's passing I know she has had some health problems for quite awhile. She, Ken and family were great neighbors when we all lived in Black Oak. spent time playing bridge together, dinner parties and back yard cookouts. May she be at peace now.
Sincerely,
Barry and Norma Roberts and Family

Karen's daughter, Susan married my son, Matt Morgann. From the first time I met Karen I new she was a very special and beautiful person in every way. She never said an unkind word about anyone and was a devout and sincere Christian full of love for everyone . I feel privileged to have known her and being her friend and grandma-in-law with her. We totally enjoyed our shared grandsons. We spent many happy times together and I will cherish my wonderful and happy memories of her. Love you, Karen. Rest in the arms of Jesus and enjoy the peace and love in heaven. Until we meet again, Diane
