Karen was a wonderful, beautiful, joyful, loving woman and will be greatly missed by many. I came to know her through the "jewelry business" and will be forever grateful for her being in my life for many years. She had a wonderful capacity for love of her family, friends and always her Lord.
To her three beautiful daughters I send my love and hugs, but we all know that your mom is in Heaven with your sweet dad and all those who have gone before. They are now with our Lord in a more beautiful place than we can even imagine. Love and prayers to you all and your family.

Like many others who have posted here, I was a sorority sister of Karen's at K.U. To my discredit, at that age I failed to fully appreciate the goodness and kindness that radiated from Karen, even then. I could not, of course, fail to appreciate her beauty and her winning smile. She was that rare person, beautiful inside and out! I offer my condolences to her family and close friends, who were fortunate enough to have her in their lives for all these years. I know you will miss her greatly.

What a sweet lovable kind lady Karen Always was ! I loved her Dearly!
She and Delvy got us into the Bible Study group -where I am still going ! They both were so persistent in making sure we joined their group !
Delvy and Karen first Introduced us to Tequilas Mexican restaurant in Brookwood shopping center! We made many fun trips there together for great Mexican meals!
It is still One of my favorite places!!
When I first came to TBC it was Karen who had Two special lunches for me so I could get to know some great ladies in the church!
She was So sweet and Kind to me !!
My late husband Dick also loved Karen and Delvy so very much !!
God Bless you All

I am flooded by so many memories having been next door neighborhoods while raising our families. Your parents taught us how to lighten up and have good, clean fun like participating in the NBC (Neighborhood Birthday Club) shenanigans. They showed us how to discipline children and be playful with them like having shaving cream fights in the front yard (my trio pulled up lawn chairs just to watch the fun).
Karen was so graceful and self-deprecating about her Parkinsons. One time she took her meds while out at a breakfast with friends, then she looked up with a twinkle in her eye and told us to move our water glasses to the middle of the table so she didn't knock anything over when the side effects of the medicine kicked in. I also observed that she could still whip on her lipstick perfectly without a mirror. I still have to use a mirror without any challenges. She surprised me with a baby shower; that's when I learned I had a support group of friends to help me through that first sleepless year. She was classy, joyful and taught me so much about courage and friendshipship (she excitedly came over and, with much self- satisfaction, knocked down an active wasp nest on our deck while I hid behind the screen door). I'm so blessed to have known her. All my love to you girls and your families. Linda

To Karen's family and close friends, please accept my deep condolences. I, too, was a sorority sister and so glad to have seen her in Lawrence at the reunion. What an effort she made to come. That alone spoke volumes of her love for her friends. Her beauty and classy style hadn't diminished a smidgeon, inspite of her physical challenges. I didn't know Karen as well, yet I always recognized her kind, sweet, happy, smiling, beautiful face reflected a beautiful heart. I am sad for all who grieve her loss. No matter how strong our Christian faith, death hurts deeply and rips precious people away. I have no doubt families will ultimately be reunited when unimaginable joy will replace sorrow. Until then..I encourage serious Biblical study so each can have that solid hope and beautiful memories will comfort and fill hearts.

My husband, Bob, and I met Delvy and Karen in the early 1970's when we all lived in Topeka, Kansas, and were in a small spiritual group together. They did not have children yet and even my younger daughter who was only 4 or 5 when we moved from Topeka to Salina remembers "horsie and froggy" as my children called Karen and Delvy who loved to play with them. I'm sorry we lost touch with them over the years as we moved on to Rockford, Il; Everett, WA; Anchorage, AK; then back to Mukilteo and Everett, WA. Bob died in May but we both had fond memories of Delvy and Karen - such loving, sweet, caring spirits. Paula

The Lewis family were our neighbors in the Brookfield neighborhood...Great family and Karen was the best!! Always friendly and happy. My best to her daughters!

Karen and I were sorority sisters at KU.
Karen's heart was filled with love and a joy for life.
I will never forget all the wonderful times we spent together.
I was a bridesmaid at her wedding and she was a bridesmaid at my wedding.
I cherish her memory and the joy she brought into my life.
When I think of Karen, I will always have a smile on my face.
Karen lit up the room with her lovely smile.

To her family and friends: May loving memories ease your loss and bring you comfort.
Karen and I were sorority sisters at KU. I loved watching her lead cheers with her enthusiasm and her smile!
She lived with me and my family while we student taught in Topeka. We even tried to make fried chicken and my folks wouldn’t touch it! She and I with Delvy and Jim played bridge with great gusto and very poorly often. I was assigned to Mr. Brown at Washburn Rural. He saved Karen’s life after a car crash. Yep, it’s a small world.
I will miss her!

I meant Karen when I was a freshman at KU. She was an unbelievably nice person and we became instant friends. I pledged Pi Phi and we got closer during our college years. I also was friends with Delvy as I went to all the basketball games. They were an exceptional couple.
Please accept my heartfelt sympathy on Karen’s passing. Although I hadn’t seen her for many years, I will always remember her with thoughts of love and kindness. She was a wonderful person.
~ Barb Edwards - November 14, 2019
Karen was such a loving and caring person. She always had a smile and was so friendly to everyone. We met when we were sophomores in high school and enjoyed a friendship through the days of our own kids growing up. Stacy babysat Kristi, Kerri, and Mindi when they were little. Delvy coached Kristi and Kelly in basketball and we traveled to many tournaments. If was fun watching our girls all graduate from Rural as well. We have so many wonderful memories of the Lewis family. You are all in our thoughts and prayers.

Mrs. Lewis was my fourth grade teacher at Crestview Elementary School. She was one of a handful of teachers who I can say really impacted my life, and I will always be grateful for the time I had with her. My condolences to her family...she was indeed a special person!
~ Terri Taylor - November 13, 2019
I am so very sorry to hear of Karen’s death this morning. I’ve known Karen since high school and she’s always been someone to look up to. The world has lost a very special friend and Delvy now has his bride back. My love and condolences to all of her friends and family.
