I have been waiting for her closest friends to post, but........Karen lived in Wilder in her freshman year - along with me and my roomate, Joan Hintlian, with whom Karen roomed in their sophomore year. Karen left MHC during our junior year and died of leukemia in the spring of 1963. In that long ago era, prior to teen aged deaths from car wrecks, Karen's death was shocking...just out of our frame of reference. RIP  Karen, and may you dwell with the angels in light!
