Condolences & Memories (2 entries)
Karen's passion for life, diligent hard work, and love for children was inspiring to so many colleagues, including myself. Karen gave more than a spark to so many youth who needed that nudge to discover and express their gifts. God's blessing be on the family. - Posted by: Jo Voth (Friend) on: Sep 24, 2019
