I remember Karen and her parents so well....I worked with her Mom, Helen, at City Hall. So many crazy memories. Karen was a lovely girl. Sad to read of her passing.

Cousin Karen connected me to Auburn, my dad's (her uncle) home town. She was an amazing story teller. Her energy and warmth made her very special to our family. We send our deepest sympathy to her children and grandchildren. Simi, Dorothy and Marcelo
