University Hospital, New Brunswick from COVID-19. She was 72 years old.
Born in Brooklyn and raised in Woodhaven, NY, Karen moved to Milltown 47 years ago.
She was a Legal Secretary at Western Electric before choosing to stay at home to raise

of the PTA. She was an avid bowler, loved Motown music and loved to dance. Some of
her favorite pastimes were spending summers with her friends at the Brookside Swim
Club and going to Wildwood.

She is survived by her sons and daughters-in-law Brian and Karen and Kevin & Ana all
of Milltown, four grandchildren, Megan, James, Allison and Anthony, and her sister
