Born July 1, 1946 in Wendell to Gene and Elaine Lockwood. She spent nearly her entire life in Idaho where she enjoyed spending time outdoors. Nothing brought her more joy than her children, except her grandchildren, and she loved attending her kids and grandkids sporting events. She enjoyed a good game of pool and had a flare for dancing. She was a voracious reader, loved poetry, and was a master at crossword puzzles. The family welcomes anyone wishing to join them in a celebration of life, which will be held Tuesday April 16 from 4 – 6pm at the Senior Center in Kimberly at 310 Main St. N Kimberly, ID.
Karen had a lifelong love of pets, and the family requests that in lieu of flowers please consider donating in her name to the Humane Society of Twin Falls.
