2 Condolences for Karen Ann Owens

  • I was called Jonesy in school and Karen would have known me by no other name. We were a tight knit class of ’64 and we all looked out for each other. Just wanted to express our condolences to her family and know that you will all see each other on the other side. May God Bless you all.

  • My deepest sympathies to Karen’s family, especially her daughters Charolette and Nancy. Met Karen in 6th grade when I began attending Caesar Rodney. We had many laughs and good times together then and throughout our adulthood. Going to miss her and our long conversations and coffee dates at Dunkin Donuts. God’s blessings to everyone who are left behind. Rest in peace, Karen.
