21.12.1948 - 16.07.2022 Karen passed away peacefully on Saturday 16th July with family and friend by her side. Dearly loved daughter of Joan and Gordon (both dec). Beloved sister of Briony, sister-in-law of David. Caring and loved aunty to Rhiannon and Tristan and their partners, Jean-Luc and Megan. Wonderful friend to Fay.

Karen was courageous to the end, finally succumbed to this insidious disease of pancreatic cancer after a brave and courageous fight of 3 years.

Although our hearts are full of sorrow and sadness, our precious memories will comfort us, until we meet again.

Reunited with your Mum and Dad. Rest in Peace Karen.


As long as I breathe, you will be remembered my beautiful brave friend. You are the epitome of courage. You never gave in to this insidious disease. Loved ones leave footprints in our hearts that last forever.

Thank you for your love and friendship. You will be dearly missed.

Fay and your furbaby Brandy.
