KARREN, Sandra

Posted: December 29th, 2016


SANDRA KARREN’S heart came to rest on Tuesday, December 27th, 2016 at the age of 79. She was predeceased by her husband and best friend, Barry Karren of Picture Butte, and leaves behind their 3 daughters: Leslie Karren, Tarri (Stuart) Crothers, and Shellie (Stefan) Kienzle; and 3 grandsons: Matthew, David and Oliver.

Mom was a “big city girl” who married a “small town boy” in the late ’50s. Together they travelled to and lived in many far-flung places, where Mom always established a warm home for her family and was famous for her improvised “gourmet delights”. In her younger years she was very spontaneous and adventurous; so in her senior years she just wanted to relax and take life easy in Picture Butte and finally at Black Rock Terrace. Mom liked to wear colourful clothes and funky shoes. She was artistic, poetic, funny and was an always enthusiastic, but terrible, singer.

Dearest Mom, it lifts our hearts that your spirit will always be felt in the sunflowers and bright yellow daisies you so enjoyed.

At Sandra’s request, no formal funeral service will be held.
