Thoughts for Karen Wick;

  • Karen was at peace and had no discomfort. She was a dear Aunt to me. I and my sister, Cara, brother Doug and Tony have many great memories of cookouts, and time spent at their house in the summertime. Now Aunt Karen is safely “Home”. She is happy with her Mother and daughters. God Bless her. Chris

    • Karen was a very kind soul. I have good memories of her enjoying Thanksgiving at our home with Chris, Brian, and the rest of our family. I remember going to eat at Dennys in Racine when she was a manager there. She loved her cat(s), really loved and enjoyed our grandson Logan. Logan has a wooden cross Karen gave to him. He treasures that. Karen was a proud woman that succumbed to a mind destroying disease. She never let anyone know about it although she was enduring it for years. I always enjoyed talking with her. She seemed to be truly interested in what a person had to say. R.I.P. Karen, with Love, Gregg Martin

  • Cara L Martin says:

    I really loved and miss Karen so much. I’m glad she is at peace with her sisters and her mom. I loved going over to Karen’s house with my grandson Logan. 💙
    He really made her laugh.
    She was always so fascinated in listening to Logan telling her things he could do on his phone.
    I know he misses her as well. She was so caring about animals. I miss you my dear Aunt and friend.
