  1. Karen was a great friend. Not only did she serve the community of Gainesville as President of the Caney Mountain VFD Auxiliary and President of the Friendly Neighbors Extension club but she was so friendly and always willing to help her community here even when she was starting to get ill. She will definitely be missed by all her friends in Ozark County Missouri. Our prayers are sent for comfort and peace knowing she is now in the loving hands of our Lord.

  2. So sorry for your loss. Wish I could be there for memorial but cannot. God strengthen and uplift you all. I loved her so much
