She was avid reader and loved to travel, her furthest adventure in life to visit Hong Kong to visit her nephew, Randal Lusk. Her other passion was dancing and sharing that with her grandchildren and great grandchildren. Karen was a secretary at Miller Brothers, a key punch operator at The Citizens Bank along with her mother Dorothy Justice and she was a dispatcher office manager for Turnbull Concrete. In her years of retirement she worked at Medco and Wendy’s to help provide for her family. She was the driving force in making sure her family never went without and making sure her grandchildren achieved their dreams.
