Karen's passing was unexpected, and came at the end of a month-long chain of events that began with a broken leg that required surgery to repair. After surgery, Karen's body never fully recovered and suffered from severe dehydration, which required her to be hospitalized in the ICU. Having had a history of miracles since 4 years old, Karen had a pacemaker but suddenly needed a heart transplant, which wasn't possible due to kidney failure. After spending over two weeks in the ICU, Karen was Heaven bound.
Karen's family appreciates the kindness of friends, other family members, and even strangers during this time. In lieu of flowers, the family would truly appreciate assistance with impending medical bills and funeral expenses. Thank you for reading this, and for considering helping this family get through such a difficult time without thinking about the financial burden.
