Karen took her last breath on earth and her first breath in Heaven on September 2, 2022.
Karen is survived by the love of her life and soul mate Hal Hoerth, and their loving children Kari Stenz and Erin (Adam) Main. Six grandchildren; Amber (Jon), Chase (Ashley), Cole (Emily), Theo, Xander and Genevieve. Three great grandchildren: Gem, Riley, and Baby Girl due any day. Family meant the world to her. In addition two sisters survive her; Linda Brandt and Christy Schwister. Also, sister and brother in laws as well as nieces and nephews.
Karen’s happy place was in Crooked Lake at the family cottage spending many years with her beloved family making memories there. If the family would be coming up we would plan meals, activities etc. wanting everyone to enjoy and relax in the North Woods.
Her wish was that the memories of the good times would sustain her family and friends during this time.
“I was blessed in so many ways, memories made Love Karen”
A private family gathering was held.
The family would like to thank extended family and friends for their support throughout our journey. Also the care and support of the Theda Care Regional Cancer Center and TCRMC-Appleton.
In lieu of flowers or other contributions please donate to the organization of your choice and/or local tavern.
