It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our wife, mother, sister, grandmother, great-grandmother and friend, Karen Joyce, on July 14, 2019, aged 63, at the Health Sciences Centre.
She will be sadly missed by her husband Larry, and children, Sherry (Jason), Richard (Leanne). Karen also leaves her siblings, Cydni (Brett), Gary (Donna), Brian (Karen), Keith and Ken (Karen). She was so proud of her grandchildren, Brittney (TJ), Colton, Kingston, Vienna and Riley. She also adored her new great-grandson Carter.
Karen was predeceased by her parents, Ronald Edward Prost "Rocky" and Eirikka Thorstina Thorsteinson "Thor".
The family extends sincere thanks to the EMS staff, both fire and ambulance, plus the emergency staff of the Health Sciences Centre which work tirelessly to give people a second chance.
Karen's love for dogs was only surpassed by her love for family and friends.
In lieu of flowers, Karen's wish would be for everyone to give their families and loved ones a great big hug and let them know how much they're loved.
Cremation has taken place.
A memorial service will be held on August 16, 2019 at 11:00 a.m. Cropo Funeral Chapel, 1442 Main Street, Winnipeg.
Interment to follow at a later date.
