To the Krueger Family,
So very sorry to hear of Karen's passing. She was so much fun. We always had such good talks when she came to the salon, for her hair and nails. Please know you are all in our thoughts and prayers, during this difficult time.
With deepest sympathies,
Candace Nollette

I am so sad to hear of Karen’s passing. We were friends at McMillan Junior high and North High. I lost contact with Karen after graduation. I was just thinking of her in the last month because our 50 year high school reunion will be next year and it was delayed due to Covid. I kept searching for her under her maiden name on Facebook but could not find her. We hung out at High Point Pool and we both worked at the old Lutheran Hospital. Karen worked at the snack bar. Our mothers worked together too. I have such good memories of Karen. Her kindness, her smile, and we had a lot of fun being teenagers. Rest In Peace Karen !
