La dernière fois que j'ai vu Karen, cela doit remonter à plus de 30 ans. Je garde le souvenir d'elle comme étant une fille aimant la vie, joyeuse et souriante. À lire les divers témoignages de sympathie, je constate qu'elle aura su conserver ces belles qualités au fil des ans. Du plus profond de mon cœur, je vous souhaite à vous, oncle Ken, cousin Robert, famille et amis, mes plus sincères condoléances.

As Founding Director of H’art Centre I am humbled by the brilliance of mind and creative energy that greets me and my colleagues daily. Karen was always one big beacon of joy waiting to share some of her love! Over the last 25 years with the support of her family ,Karen performed at the Grand Theatre, played music in the Isabel Bader Theatre and the H’art BOX theatre .Karen worked alongside contemporary and acclaimed artists and helped them learn more about how to mix their abilities with hers,she participated in City of Kingston arts initiatives , sang and drummed with the best and even was honoured with a standing ovation by over 400 Queens Faculty of Education students for auditing arts classes for three years. Karen and her 90 year old buddy June Methot sewed and donated 50 fabric teddy bears to an agency in need. I don’t have enough room to share that this woman lived a full life! Karen remains a teacher and the greatest lesson I learned was never try to fool her, she knew . Her compassion for those who had less was great and her sensitivity to wrong was even greater. I will miss her and will always be thankful that she gave me some of her time.

Karen always had such a welcoming greeting whenever we entered the H’art Centre, beaming and eager to share a story with us about her latest activities. Her emphatic declaration during a music class, “I know everything about everything,” will always be remembered because it was such a testimony to her confidence, strength and positive self-esteem. It was truly an honour to have known her.
