I was a teacher at Crestwood. Karen was always so kind to me. She always made me laugh with various stories or saying some funny little something. Many prayers!

I worked with Karen for many years at Crestwood. She was totally dedicated to the students, the parents and the staff members. Crestwood was like her second home. After we both retired, I saw her for lunches with others and then we lost touch when I moved away. I regret that, now that she’s gone. We all have funny and happy memories of her and she will be missed. Praying for peace and comfort for Gene, Scott and Steven, and her sisters, and all of her family. ♥️🙏♥️

The world is a lesser place without my dear friend, Karen. She took care of the school, students, teachers and me for so many years. She could always be counted on to help us. We had so many good times at Crestwood Elementary through remodelings, opening school, closing school and taking care of our people. I will miss her just as I have since my retirement. She just kept on working. Kudos to your faithfulness, reliability and good old common sense. Goodbye, sweet dear friend.

My deepest sympathies go out to your family. Karen was always a sweet friend at Crestwood. Always helpful when I was raising my boys with answers to boy mom questions! And I always asked her who else could I ask if it was butt naked or buck naked?!?!? She was a great friend. Joyful memories to you all.

I was raised with these girls. They all graduated from White High School. We would visit each other on weekends and in the summer. Karen and Gene married then spent time in Japan and Germany before settling in NLR. She began a career in NLR school district. Karen was closer to my age than the rest. She was a very sweet person yet independent and sturdy. She will forever be missed, especially by her sisters who loved her very much. Rest In Peace Karen.
