Karrie was creative and incredibly talented. Music was a passion throughout her life. She started piano lessons as a little girl and had a beautiful voice which led to her touring Europe with her choir. She always loved baking and many would agree she was excellent at it.
Karrie was a loving and dedicated mother and wife. She and her husband John found happiness together and married on December 10, 2010. They became a blended family with her own five children and John's two sons. Karrie worked hard to make all who came to her home feel loved and welcome. She worked several jobs over the years but enjoyed working as Deputy Treasurer for Perkins County. She always spoke about her work family with so much love. Karrie was loved and cherished by her family and her community, and she will be greatly missed.
