Here are some special memories shared by family and friends.
Sally and I send our deepest condolences to the Stanchek family. We had the pleasure of working with Karen when she supervised the Roselle group home where my sister Caroline lived. Karen was a deeply compassionate and giving person to Caroline and the other residents. We were fortunate to have Karen as our partner in caring for Caroline. Karen truly cared and lived her commitment to the residents daily. We are extremely saddened by this loss and find it hard to believe that such a good person is gone. This world is a lesser place for losing Karen and her kindness.
Kevin and Sally O'Brien
I'm so sorry for your loss. The God of the Bible promises at John 5:28,29 that there's going to be a resurrection to life. This scripture has given me comfort during my loss and I pray you receive comfort from it also.
