If you knew Karen, you were blessed with knowing the true definitions of love, friendship and family. She held everyone she knew close to her heart, and treasured all of her relationships. Her smile and laugh would accompany her entrance into any room, along with outstretched arms to grab whatever baby was available to “love on”. Is there truly any greater legacy than love, to leave behind? Karen taught us, showed us, by doing what she did best: loved immeasurably & wholeheartedly.
A mass of Christian burial will be offered on Monday morning at 11am at St. Mary’s Church, 1209 Route 9W, Marlboro to which family and friends are invited.
