Karen was born December 16, 1959 to Earl and Betty Joy in Amarillo.  She graduated from North Heights Special Education in 1980. She participated in Special Olympics and her sport was bowling.  She worked at State Center Workshop and at Hardee’s for many years.  Karen was a special person and anyone who met her came away a changed person.  It was easy to see Jesus in her face and Jesus is now holding her hand.

She was preceded in death by nieces, Kalee Joy Barton and Kristin Joy.
