She was a dedicated and faithful member of Mt. Zion Baptist Church in Southside. Often, she would invite others to attend church with her and she was instrumental in leading others to Christ.
Karen was a very caring and giving person. Her nickname was “Care Bear” and those around her were always considered her family. Her special friend, Herb, was her best buddy. She also loved animals and small children. She loved to color and often would give her coloring pages to her friends to enjoy.
Her favorite color picked and everything in her room had to be pink which included her lampstand, bed comforter, and curtains.
Karen’s favorite time of year was her birthday, and she would tell everyone that her birthday was coming in April. She loved people and they loved her. She will be missed.
