Karen Lovett, 73, passed away after a battle with lung cancer while she was surrounded by her loved ones.
She was born on June 16, 1943 in Portland to Allen and Maude Berger. Karen was truly one of a kind. She was vivacious, funny and so full of life. In true Karen fashion, some of her last words made her family laugh. Karen was beloved by many and her greatest passion and joy in life was bringing her family together.
She is survived by her daughters whom she loved dearly: Maria (Lovett) Eyerly, Marci (Lovett) Hill, and Kristin (Lovett) Thompson; her sons-in-law who were like her own, Charles Hill and Brian Thompson; six grandchildren who think she was the best grandma in the world: Alison (Eyerly) Stewart, Tyler Thompson, Trent Thompson, Jacob Thompson, Briley Hill and Melana Hill; her sister and best friend Kathi Rees; and Maizie, her dog who never left her side.
Karen enjoyed gardening, hosting family barbecues, watching television and having lunch at McNary’s restaurant.
