Most recently, Karen was an engineering assistant at Raytheon Corporation in Tewksbury.

Karen had a great love for animals and was a docent/guide for Southwick’s Zoo in Mendon, MA. She also enjoyed photography and crafting but her most cherished time was spent with her grandchildren.

Jones of Denton, TX; two grandchildren Emma and Ethan Jones; two sisters Phyllis R. Fales of Cushing, ME and Sandra L.
