Karen Bonnie Beer passed away peacefully in her home on July 30, 2020 in Paradise Valley, AZ. Born and raised in New York, Karen moved to Arizona in 1993 with her loving husband Lawrence. Karen and Lawrence shared an amazing, loving life together for over 53 years. Karen was a devoted sports fan and loved watching her Arizona Diamondbacks. She had a warm, vibrant personality and loved nothing more than entertaining her family and friends. The role she enjoyed most however, was being Nana to her seven grandchildren Alex, Josh, Brady, Addison, Kendall, Isaac and Liam, who loved their Nana to the moon and back. Karen was the mother of three wonderful children and seven beautiful grandchildren. She was devoted to her family and would always go out of her way to ensure everyone was happy and most importantly, eating well. There is nothing that Karen would not have done for her family. Karen will join her parents Joseph and Dorothy Salzburg, and her beloved sister Barbara London (Salzburg) who preceded her in death. Karen is survived by her loving husband, Lawrence and her three beautiful children, Debra McCrae (Beer), Eric Beer and Adam Beer. Karen’s bright personality and loving way will be severely missed and never forgotten by her family and friends.

I will miss my dear Karen very much. Though technically she was my sister in law - married to my brother Larry - I always felt she was the sister I never had. We shared so many wonderful moments together...and her home was where I could always go to laugh, get comfort...and feel safe. She was special in so many ways but I am most grateful for the way she cared for my mother and my children in times of joy and sorrow. We played cards, went to the casino, and she hooked me on Video Poker! I'll always remember her ice box cake, carrot soup and famous tuna salad. Rest in peace Karen...I promise to watch over all the kids and my brother.

Karen and Larry were my clients as their realtor when they moved here in 1992 and after that we became great friends. She was such a dear friend and we enjoyed a wonderful meaningful friendship for 28 years. She was always fun, full of energy, loved to laugh and everyone enjoyed her company. She was a true friend and truly understood the responsibility that comes with being a friend. She taught me so much and I feel as if I became less judgmental because of her. Her family always came first but she always made time for whatever a friend needed. Our family will really miss Karen’s bright smile and her upbeat demeanor. Her passing has hit us hard but we will always hold her in our hearts and remember the great times we had together. We truly believe that God was waiting for another angel and needed Karen more with him.
You are at peace now our dear friend .Sweet dreams forever.
We love u .
Diane and Steven
