Sending prayers to you all. Karen was more than just my piano teacher growing up; she was a friend, mentor, and cheerleader. She was one of the most wonderful people I knew and has had such a huge impact on me and so many others. My sincere condolences during this time.

Jim, Dan and family, I pray God will comfort you and give you a peace that passes understanding. I have so many precious memories- one that comes to mind is the time Dan and Elijah set up a tent in our front yard. They were just 2 boys- having fun. God Bless, Sue
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Karen leaves a legacy in the many areas in which she was accomplished and she was indefatigable when following her passions. Karen was a good friend for many years sharing adventures in art, dog training, teaching dance aerobics, gardening, church activities, arts & crafts jaunts and "recreational eating". She will be remembered by her students and the community for her love and mastery of music on piano, guitar, dulcimer, and harp. I feel honored to have known her and to have counted her as friend. Sending love to Jim, Dan and the entire family in the loss of Karen, a truly remarkable woman.

I’m so sorry Jim and Danny for your loss. I know it’s hard and in time it will get easier. She will always be in your hearts. As neighbors we will miss seeing her out. If you ever need anything you know where we’re at. Prayers and Karen rest in peace.
