Karen was a member of the Victory Hill Church of God (formerly known as Crozet Church of God) where she served as Clerk, a Sunday School teacher of all ages from infants through Adult classes; Ladies Ministers officers; Family Training officers.

Only those individuals would know who helped with some of those suggestions. During her lifetime, church was her life as well as being with family and friends. She loved to have dinners and entertain. The greatest joy, other than church work, was attending the sports events of her nephew Chad Wood.

Allison and Chad were like her own two children. Eugene Brown, of Waynesboro, was the first baby she helped her mother baby sit and she always considered him her "little boy". Karen and her family want to thank all of her family and friends who helped her during her illness. Special thanks go out to all her doctors, nurses on South 7 at Martha Jefferson Hospital and to Dr. Pritchard and Dr. Morris and their staff.
