Karen’s greatest passion

in life was helping others.

She proudly became a Re-

gistered Nurse in Minot,

ND and continued her

career in Iowa, Kansas

and Washington State.

She devoted her life to the

improvement of mental

health treatment and act-

ed as a clinical manager

and Director of Nursing

for mental health hospi-

tals in the Seattle region.

Karen had a vivacious

spirit and contagious posi-

tivity that affected all

those in her presence. She

had a curiosity for life, the

gift of gab and always

remarked that she “never

met a stranger”. She was a

green thumb in the gar-

den, an avid shopper, a

fierce film buff and loved

all things entertainment.

Her laughter was conta-

gious, her humor quirky

and her beauty bright.

Karen will be remem-

bered always as someone

who loved with all her

heart and will be truly

missed by many, includ-

ing her grandchildren

who know her as NiNi.

Services will be held: at

wood, Washington. Her

family will be hosting a

celebration of life directly

following her service at

her home on Lake

McMurray where she

planned to retire and live

out the rest of her life sur-

rounded by friends and


Memorial contributions

may be made in her honor

to Hospice of the



Arrangements under

the care of Gilbertson

Funeral Home, Stanwood,
