Kari was my first childhood school friend when she still lived here in Parma, Ohio. Even after she moved to West Virginia we remained friends and kept in contact for many years. Continued to have many visits together on summer breaks and had alot of great times together even as adults. She was a ball of energy and always so much fun to be around. She will definitely be missed by all. Hugs to her mom Hedy, she was awesome!

Kari was our daughter-in-law she was full of life. Her love for her family was evident. That's what she lived for.
On several occasions our son Wil became very sick while they lived in WV. Kari kept us informed regularly because we couldn't be there. For this I will always be eternally grateful to her. Praying for her family.

Kari was my sister-law. She loved life and lived it to the fullest. She was always busy trying out new recipes which was an absolute plus for anyone who got to sample them. She was strong-willed and was never afraid to stand up for what she believed in.

I met Ms Keel while attending Fortis College, where she was my teacher in the pharmacy program. Ms Keel had such a genuine, loving spirit that was contagious in a way. She taught in such a way, that you didn’t wanna leave class. She was the light of our class. She stayed on us, and told us the real of real lol. She impacted myself, and my fellow classmates in a way that we will never forget. She was more than just a teacher to me, she was family. She forever will be.

I remember I met Kari when I was pregnant with my youngest son. She come over to my house for a dinner and brought the best strawberry cake. She was nice enough to make me that same cake again and cupcakes as well on other occasions. Besides being a great cook, more importantly she was a very nice person.

She had such a kind spirit. She always treated me and my sons like family. I remember working with her and we would have such a fun time, always laughing. She would always tell me to love myself and everything about me. She invited me to dinner and omg her food was amazing!
