Karen and Jeanne on February 12, 2007, at one of our Red Hat Sewciety dinners
We got news on Sunday that Karen, one of our Red Hat Sewciety members, passed away Sunday. She retired from our office two years ago and then she and her husband moved to South Carolina. We heard from her occasionally, but never saw her again. Her health had gone down hill lately and the report was she was at the top of the list for a liver and kidney transplant. Apparently she developed an infection last week and didn't make it. I feel very sad for her husband. Prior to coming to Bethany House, she and her husband were missionaries in Brazil for 30 some years. Rest in peace, Karen.
