It's always sad to post the loss of a classmate, but even more so when we have another classmate, Michael, who mourns her loss. Our condolences to Michael and his family.

Karen was a dear friend since the 4th grade.  I'll miss her terribly.

I'm so sorry for the family loss, losing a wife and mother. I got to know them at HyVee when Stephanie was there and I reconnected with Mike and Karen when they would visit the store. My sincere condolences.

Karen was one of the first people to befriend me when I arrived at Southwest High School.  Memories of her kindness are remembered dearly.
