She passed away with family and friends by her side after a bout with pneumonia. Karen graduated from Fort Payne High School in Alabama in 1982. She graduated from Edmonson Jr. College in Chattanooga Tennessee with a paralegal degree shortly after that. She was a huge University of Alabama football fan and anyone who knew her was well aware of that fact!
