Karen was and will always be my favorite boss ever. I met her at Riverside Veterinary Clinic in Haverhill Mass back in 1996 when I was changing careers into the Veterinary field. Immediately, I felt welcomed into a well established group of talented professionals, led by Karen. We worked hard at RVC for our clients and we had fun. Going to work was a pleasure.

My condolences to the Crawford and Novello families for their loss of someone so very dear to them. May the sorrow, be replaced by the memories and the memories bring tears of joy to their hearts.

We were so saddened to hear of Karen's passing. She was an extraordinary person and veterinarian. We were blessed to have our 4 leggeds cared for by an incredibly knowledgable doctor and a kind, compassionate and truly funny friend. Our prayers and thoughts are with Candi and all of Karen's family. We are very sorry for your loss and hope that your memories bring you comfort during this difficult time.

We were shocked to hear of Karen’s passing. Candi, you have our sincere condolences, and your family. Just shocked of her passing. Karen was the sweetest person and tremendous veterinarian, and a true friend. Time and miles didn’t matter. She was thought of often. When my boxer needed an ultrasound, she fit him in asap. When we went looking for a CPA, you provided a gem. Karen always seemed to be available with support, encouragement and interest in whatever you were doing. She will be missed. Please know we send our love and support to you Candi and your family.

Having multiple Chihuahua’s, Karen had to deal with a lot from my dogs. The most memorable was Sophie, who constantly thought she had given birth. I would bring her in to be treated with her “baby”, which was usually a squeaky toy, or a sock, or once a rawhide chewy. Karen would always check Sophie’s baby, and praise her for being a good Momma.. She was one in a million. May you rest in the sweetest peace Karen, surrounded by all your animals.❤️

There are no words to express the loss of someone so beautiful inside and out. The most loving, genuine person anyone would be so very fortunate to have come into their life. Candi, Alison, Andrew and Joel- you all know that you were her life. We are all so blessed to have had her touch our lives. Such a beautiful, beautiful person. My deepest sympathy to all of her family. The world has lost one of the best ever here. I really do believe that she will live on in all who have loved her.

My Deepest Sympathies to Candi and Karen’s wonderful family.
Karen was not just a wonderful Veterinarian but a loving friend so respected by everyone who worked for her. Her kindness reached out to everyone who met her. Even in her retirement she reached out with advice to help us with our pets. Her home was always open to all of us. Prayers and love are coming for her family. She will be missed so much.

I was very sorry to learn of the passing of Dr Crawford. She was a wonderful veterinarian and friend. When I started out working in the veterinary field I was always amazed by her knowledge and her compassion to her patients. She probably never thought of herself as a trailblazer but she became a veterinarian at a time when there were still not many women in the field. Me deepest condolences to her family. She was loved and admired by many and will be missed.
