Karen Diane Bales of North Chesterfield, peacefully departed this life on July 9, 2018, after a year-long battle with a chronic illness. Loving mother of Aaron; sister of Kyle (Linda); sister-in-law of Alex and Cheryl; very special aunt of Lesley (Chris), Jamie (Derrick) and Michele; great-aunt of Ryan, Evan and Owen; friend to many, including her extended Verizon and CWA family. She was preceded in death by her parents, Lester and Marion Bales; her sister and best friend, Lynn Tajnsek; and her brothers, Fred (Charlotte), Jack (Nora) and David Bales.

Born in Richmond, Va., on April 3, 1957 and a lifelong Chesterfield County resident, she enjoyed reading, playing computer games, watching all of "her shows" and conversing with anyone she met. We miss her so much and love her immensely.

A true friend that had a heart like no other. You will be missed by "Billy" and I tremendously. So many memories, bluegrass festivals, lake , beach, trips to the mountains among many more and of course shopping. I will miss our talks we would have everyday.
