Aunt Karen was such a good-hearted & loving person.
I will always remember her laugh, fun at family get togethers at Grandma & Grandpa Lindblom's house and and her love of Elvis Presley (at least when I was a kid). I have many fond memories of time spent with Aunt Karen & playing with David and Tara, when we were little. She will be missed.

Karen was my childhood friend. I would call for her on her front porch and we would play every and any game – jacks, canasta, clue- you name it (she always won). I will always remember her as a very intelligent person and fun to be with.
I know she loved the Lord and that I will see her again in heaven. I have many fond memories of her. Until we meet again Karen.
