I first met Karen when I was a nursing student working on the Moellering Unit at Lutheran. Karen was such a kind gentle & caring nurse. What a great role model.

Fast forward to First Missionary Church and our choir days.

After we had moved to the north side of FW she came to visit after our daughter Frances was born. I will always remember her encouraging visit and how she held our daughter.

Karen was truly a godly woman and a joy to know. We are so sorry for your loss of this special wife , mother & grandmother. Will & Jama Mitchell

So sorry to just today hear of Karen's passing. We were out of town so didn't know. Karen and Harry raised a wonderful family which is a great reflection of their dedication to the Lord.

Karen was the 1st nurse I would with 44 years ago. I will always remember her knowledge, compassion and how she lived her faith. She set forth an example for me at age 20 that helped shape my life. I have never forgotten her and I never will! Another Saint in Heaven.
