The family then moved to Spokane WA where Karen would spend most of her years. She was in the first graduating class of Shadle Park High School in 1960. After some college and various jobs, she started a career with the US Postal Service. In 1990 she transferred to San Diego CA, retiring in 1992 after 27 years. She was the epitome of strength and compassion always protecting the people she loved, a lover of warm weather, ocean beaches, dancing, and all furry creatures big and small.
