I worked with Karen at USASAC at the New Cumberland Army Depot and she was so sweet to me when I was a newcomer there. She loved animals and her family and she sure kept us all in line! She will be missed. Rest in peace, Karen.

Karen was a wonderful friend to me, while working at USASAC and after we both retired. We spent many hours reminiscing about fun times with work friends and sharing good time stories about our families. She would always remind me that she would do her best to help me, if I ever needed something and I would tell her the same. She loved dogs as much as I do, and always seemed a bit disappointed if I came to visit, and left Honey and Sparky at home. She was funny and pleasant, and could always improve my outlook.
Prayers and love to her wonderful family. She loved you all so much!
