Karen passed away peacefully surrounded by her loving family. Survived by her husband Peter, daughters Heather and Stephanie. Her Mother Kay and brothers Remi Jr. (Nelita) and Tom (Rachel).
Karen was born in Montreal and spent her childhood in the Laurentian Mountains of Quebec, where she fell in love with alpine and water skiing. Karen was an accomplished athlete excelling in alpine skiing and travelled the world representing Canada on the National Team.
Karen met Peter on one of her trips to the west coast. Their love produced 28 years of marriage and 2 beautiful daughters. Her competitive passion showed in all aspects of her life. Her children were always the first priority for her. Karen created a welcoming loving home full of family traditions, fine cuisine, and total comfort for all.
Karen had a special place in her heart for the elderly, and spent many years caring for her seniors.
