Karen always took care of each of us when on clogging trips. Such a big kind heart. So sad to hear of her passing. Our prayers are with Don, Wendy, Michael and Family.

Karen was part of my life as Nanny from when I was 9 months old to 16 years old. She was quick to laugh, hug, or discipline as appropriate to the circumstances. I have appreciation and love for her and I'm grateful she had a long, full life filled with friends, family, and humor.

Karen was a great friend to me when she lived in Bluffdale. We had some great visits. I was one of her visiting teachers for a long time. I remember the trailer she lived in and how she wished she had a home, which she finally got after a few years. I have missed seeing her since she moved.

Karen was like a second mom to me. I am going to miss her so much.
