Karen loved life out in the country and being on the farm. She will be remembered for her love of all animals, especially raising her Angus cattle and horses. Karen will be sorely missed by her dog Mykah, and her horses Aries, Czoe, and Dan.
The family wishes to thank Andrew and Hayley, the VON for their ongoing care, the staff at the LHSC Cancer Clinic, the staff at Foodland in Komoka, and all of her friends and family for their support, care and compassion.
