Karen also leaves to grieve many nieces, nephews and extended family: brother-law-in Jack (Carol) Eltom; sisters-in-law Yvonne (Syl) Rokosh, and Lorrayne Schoenhals.

Karen was born in Lemberg, SK in 1947, where she spent most of her elementary school years until they moved to Regina. She attended Scott Collegiate in Regina. After graduation, Karen went to work for the Government of Saskatchewan. She used her keen accounting skills in a variety of positions over the years to secure her retirement in 2012.

Karen’s children and grandchildren were her great joy. She loved spending time in the mountains, visiting with her children and watching her grandchildren. Karen will be remembered by her family for her witty sense of humor, her wonderful baking, and her ability to make time to chat with each of her children and grandchildren.

As per Karen’s wishes, no service will be held.
