She trained at Success Business College and then worked for CP Rail for 35 years. She enjoyed spending time at the cottage in Matlock. She travelled extensively and always had a wonderful group of close-knit friends. She was a member of St. John's Cathedral, serving ten years as envelope secretary, and two years as secretary to vestry. Karen was diagnosed with cancer on October 11, 2013 and after many tests to find the source, had her first and only chemo on February 3, 2014, which was far too late. Cremation has taken place.
