She married Randall J Garrett in the Salt Lake Temple on September 8, 1967. They were blessed with four children. She was an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and served in many callings. Karen loved her family unconditionally and always spoke gentle and kind with never a negative word to say about anyone or anything. Karen, very naturally, loved her Heavenly Father. She loved being a homemaker and was very talented at sewing, quilting and cross stitch. She spent many years doing genealogical research and organizing many family histories. Family and grand-children were the joy of her life. We will all miss her positive and cheerful attitude, sense of humor and loving, non-judgmental way.
