  1. My family and I are deeply saddened.
    Gary and I and our daughter Brandi Bean Johnson,
    Karen’s neices Elisabeth, Abigail and Luke Johnson her nephew loved her very much.
    She will be greatly missed.

  2. Lee, Mary, Jordan, Shelby, Kristen and Prissy (never last)& her family. I know that you will miss Karen, sure can’t replace her. I know that I will. She was a hoot & a holler, plain spoken to a fault. If she loved you, you knew it. If not —well . We have been friends for a long long time and maybe we will meet again. Rest in peace and take a little hell to heaven with you.
