Karen was born on April 8, 1944 in New Carlisle, Ohio. Karen started working in 1960 at GC Murphys in Troy. Later she worked at Krogers in Vandalia, the Orr Felt in Piqua, and later in life, 1980, she worked at the Little Country School House outside of West Milton. In 1984 she became the assistant manager at the West Milton American Legion for several years. She moved to Tipp City and tended the American Legion there from 1988 to 2005. Karen then went to Circuits and Cables in Vandalia where she did electronics assembly for 4 years.
Karen enjoyed her doggies, Fritzy, Corky and Ozzy. She loved to work outside in the garden, in the yard, and enjoyed pulling weeds. She had several motorcycles in her life and enjoyed riding them until later in her life.
Karen fought brain cancer fiercely for the last 18 months of her life. Although the cancer overcame her flesh, Karen's faith in her Lord ultimately won the battle.
