Karen and I played in the same bridge club for 30 years. She was the best joke teller. We shared a love for travel. She e-mailed me in 2003 telling me about a zoo trip to Churchill, Manitoba, to see the polar bears. I got on it and signed up. Then I found out she wasn't going--nevertheless, it was one of my most memorable trips. Bud said to me recently that she was one of the smartest women he had ever met--high praise I thought. But it was r down-to-earth demeanor that I loved. Our bridge group will not be the same without her.

What a beautiful slide show of Karen's life, family, friends and the fun she had living life! I will so miss Karen's smile and her wonderful sense of humor. She could deliver a joke like no one else and always had a fun one to tell at bridge. Our evening bridge group just won't be the same without her! At least we have wonderful memories of our last couples Christmas dinner at the Fromans beautiful new home in Vancouver...Karen was so proud to show it to us...and rightly so. We all shared many a story of kids, grandchildren, travels and adventures...Karen loved telling us about them all. I will miss you Karen. John joins me in our disbelief of a life taken way too soon and so quickly...and in prayers for you, Bill, and the children. God bless. XO Nancy

Our lunch group has been together for over 25 years. Lots of good food, good times, stories, and no one could tell a story or joke like Karen. She was so full of life. It was so evident that Karen loved her family & adored her grandson. She always had new pictures of him to share...she was so proud. I'd like to thank the Froman family for sharing so many wonderful pictures of Karen's life. Even as a child there was the Karen "look" & Karen "smile" that was so much a part of her as an adult. Our hearts are hurting. She was taken from us much too soon & we will truly miss her.

The Spear family sends hugs and kisses.
I am blessed to have shared so very many "mother" and "grandmother" joys together along with just as many golfing "girlfriend" times with Karen.
I know that my sadness will be healed by Karen herself...because she always put a lovely perspective on every situation and I know that her kind humor will ring in my ear forever and my memories of her gentle nature will comfort me.
Karen always made me smile!
Love, Marilyn Spear

How do you accept the death of a younger? The past week I find myself stopping....mid-cooking, cleaning, whatever. A prayer comes to mind - or just asking God to embrace "our story-teller"
Karen and Bill entered our lives thru W.P.L.C., over 25 years ago. I always felt a bond with her as we were both Bay Area Brats. Karen was the most down to earth lady. We did not have the school bond as our children went to different schools but we had the children to talk about.
I can't think of Karen and not remember her coming to a luncheon and telling the story of the month before. She was driving by our home and saw many cars. "Oh", she thought, "Lynn must be having company". A day or so later she realized it was a Luncheon Group gathering.
My prayers now go to Bill and the children and Collin..... Karen you will never be forgotten.
P>S> Collin - I hope many more friends of "gram" will write you little stories. Love, Lynn O'

I met Karen when John and Drayton were in grade school at Bridlemile. We worked on school projects together and enjoyed a laugh on numerous occasions.
We last chatted at Carey Mougey's bridal shower during which she waxed eloquently about Collin and gave the website address so I could "see for yourself." One could palpably feel and hear the sound of her love for her entire family on any given day with every reference of them. She was a gift to her family and friends and acquaintances. What the world has lost the stars have gained.

I miss my Grandma, but I'm glad I got to know her if only for 2 years. Grandma spoiled me rotten. Sometimes my parents would request she do mean things to me like let me cry in bed, or not buy me presents. She wouldn't listen to them though because she loved me so much! I will remember her always.
