At Karen’s request, her body will be donated to the Mayo Clinic Bequest Program in Rochester, Minnesota. No services are being planned at this time.

From Pastor Travis:

Karen was incredible.

I will miss our heart to hearts over China Buffet. Through many heartaches, she relentlessly pursued Christ. Her hope was in His redemption. She experienced that in new ways in the year before her passing. We hoped with her for the days ahead.

A willing servant, Karen would help with our Caring Closet operation on a consistent basis. Her calm demeanor would put many at ease in our Church home. She served on our Church leadership team and played the keyboard for prelude.

Like many, she had a hard time coming to grips with the reality that the Grace of God was truly hers. Today, she has no doubt. For that, my heart leaps with joy! We will miss her greatly.

May this song lead you into the presence of God today:

~ Pastor Travis Jackson
