Karen was a master gardener and enjoyed spending countless hours beautifying her home and yard. She was an avid quilter, enjoyed sewing, and her creative spirit was evident in her arts and crafts projects. She enjoyed golfing, playing cards and mahjong with her family and girlfriends, and was known to make chocolate chip cookies that were hard to resist. She loved spending time with her grandchildren, vacationing with them and watching all their sporting events.
