Date of Death

November 27, 2017

The world has lost a special soul with the passing of Karen Leigh Olsen. Karen had an unrelenting spirit. She was determined, and when she put her mind to something, there was no stopping her. When Karen was told 10 years ago that she only had 6 months to live due to breast cancer, she defied the odds. She did her research and stayed alive for a decade using alternative treatments, amazing everyone around her. Karen was a talented artist who loved community, gardening, and most of all, her son. She was truly a beautiful soul, and her smile would light up a room like nothing you’ve ever seen. We miss you dearly, Karen, but we know your wild spirit is out there soaring. A very heartfelt thanks to Tracy, Nurse Deb and Sarah House for helping Karen’s family during the toughest of times. You are angels on earth.
