KARYN LEE FORSYTH, (62yrs of age) beloved wife of Tim Forsyth and mother to many, passed away in her home Sunday morning, June 12, 2016, surrounded by family.

Karyn was born April 19, 1954 to Hugh and Geraldine Court in Raymond Alberta. She was fun loving girl who loved to tease and pull pranks. At 15 years old she met her sweetheart but had to wait until she was 16 before she was allowed to date him. They were married May 5, 1972 and they had their first baby in September of 1973. From that day forward she hasn’t had a day without a child in her arms. The motto she had was “There is always room for one more”. She has fostered over 100 children in the last 31 years. Currently at home with her were her grandchildren Justin and Lakeisha, who have lived there since their mother Marie passed away 8 years ago; and Luis, Jocelyn and Jeremy Spearchief. Karyn’s love for them all was evident in all she did.

She will be missed greatly by her parents, her 10 children Shawn Forsyth (Melissa) Kati Firth (Paul), Scott Forsyth (Shanna), Tina Houseman (Sheldon), Laura Michel (Kurtis), Jason Forsyth (Kasey), A.J Forsyth, Jolene Black (Brandon Nelson), Bailey Black and 37 grandkids.

Friends may meet the family at Legacy Funeral Home, on Friday, June 17th from 7:00 to 8:00 p.m. or at the church from 2:00 to 2:45 p.m. prior to the service.

The Funeral service will be held at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Cardston Alberta West Stake Center, 846 1st Ave W, Cardston, Alberta on Saturday, June 18th, 2016 at 3:00 p.m. Interment to follow in the Leavitt Cemetery.
