Although I never knew Karen all that well, I am saddened by her passing.

I remember Karen as being an active participant in many Forest View activities. She was friendly and fun. My memory is not perfect, but as I looked her up in my yearbooks, I know that Karen made me feel liked and part of the high school life. 

From what I have just read about her life "after FVHS class of 1969" see appears to have continued giving of herself to others through her career choices. My prayers for comfort go to her family and many friends she has left behind.

You made a positive impact on others through your life and service to others, Karen.

I was saddened to hear of Karen's passing.  I remember Karen as one of the nicest girls I knew during our years at Forest View.  She and her brother Kevin were great people.   We both lived on the same street (We-Go Trail) and always enjoyed each other's company as we experienced life during the late 60's.  From her obituary, it was enlightening to read about her life.  She obviously reflected God's glory in the years she had on this earth.  Please accept my sincere sympathy during this time.
