Her cheerful good nature will be missed by friends and family. Karen leaves daughter, Anita (Phillip) and sons Helgie (Mary Ann), Ernest (Tineke), Asker and many grandchildren and great grandchildren. She was predeceased by husband Thomas and son Robert (Annie). Karen and Thomas arrived in Port Alberni from Denmark in 1953. They loved the rugged beauty of the Valley and the adventure of creating a life with their family in a new country. Interacting with the community for many years at the family’s McCoy Lake Farm, they grew strawberries and produce. Karen loved hosting large family gatherings and exploring BC in their camper. A celebration of her life will be held at Jericho Road Church, 5100 Tebo Ave, (former Mt Klitsa School) on Friday, Jan 20 at 2 pm. The family appreciates the care given Karen, for several months, by the staff of Echo Village. Stories and condolences may be forwarded to www.yatesmemorial.ca
