Karen was born in Iowa City, Iowa on May 4, 1951. Karen worked as a waitress at the Wyndham Hotel in Westborough for 16 years and previously at IHOP in Shrewsbury for 18 years. Karen worked with her husband Lou hosting DJ and Karaoke Shows and Elvis Tribute Shows throughout the area and around the country.
Karen was happiest when surrounded by friends and family. She loved dancing, cheap wine (Boone's Farm Apple Wine), crafts, planning family gatherings and never missed an opportunity to dress in costume for Halloween.
Her contagious smile and beautiful dimples could brighten the darkest day. She had an amazing ability to find good in everyone she met. She was a remarkable woman that lived life to the fullest and showed us what it means to die with dignity
From the time Karen was diagnosed with cancer to the moment she died, she never complained or asked why this was happening. She would console all those around her and thank them for the great times she had with them.
