She enjoyed attending the day program with Finger Lakes Developmental Disability (DDSO) in Canandaigua for over 15 years, prior to the COVID 19 shutdown and affectionately referred to this as her “school”. She formed many special relationships and loved to share her list of accomplishments at the end of each day. Karen’s joys in life were spending time with her family, music (especially Michael Jackson), dancing (boy could she cut a rug!) and the Disney Princesses, especially Cinderella. Karen was loving and affectionate always ready for hugs, tickles and a good game of peekaboo with the babies. All who met her were inspired by her sweet nature.
