The family moved to the small town of Hendersonville, Tennessee and Karen played softball for the Long Hollow Baptist Church for one season.

Karen eventually moved to West Palm Beach, Florida, where she began her career with State Farm Insurance which lasted over 40 years.

Karen will always be remembered for her great sense of humor but most of all, she will be remembered for the care and concern that she never failed to give to her family and friends whenever they were in need. She will forever be loved and missed.
