Together they welcomed a son, Timothy Earl and later went on to adopt a daughter, Heather Lynn. Karen loved spending time with her family and cherished her beloved grandchildren. She was kind, generous and compassionate. She loved to cook and bake and always said “If anyone goes hungry, it is their own fault.” She always made time to chit chat with her family and friends.
