Karen’s true passion and God given gift was crocheting and knitting.  She made many treasured afghans, bedspreads, doilies and baby blankets that she gave to her family and friends.

She was a wonderful mother, grandmother and a trusted friend.  Karen’s faith was a comfort to her and helped her through her illness.   She will be fondly remembered and dearly missed by all that loved and knew her.

She was preceded in death by her parents, one infant daughter and three sisters.

Karen was a member of the First Baptist Church of El Paso.  She was a hard worker and retired from Hart Carter Company of Gridley in January 2000.  The family would like to thank OSF Hospice for the excellent care they provided. Memorials may be made to OSF Hospice or the church.
