A private family graveside service will be held. For those so wishing, donations in Karen’s memory may be made to Citizen’s All, 410 Hochelaga St E, Moose Jaw, SK S6H 0P3. When I come to the end of my journey and I travel my last weary mile Just forget if you can, that I ever frowned and remember only the smile. Forget that I’ve stumbled and blundered and sometimes fell by the way Remember I have fought some hard battles and won, ere the close of the day. And come in the shade of evening when the sun paints the sky in the west Stand for a few moments beside me and remember only my best. (From “When I Am Gone” by Mrs. Lyman Hancock) In living memory of Karen, a memorial planting will be made by Jones-Parkview Funeral Services.
