Karen has been married to her childhood sweetheart Bill for fifty years. They are retired from their business and have since been full-time babysitters for their three precocious grandchildren. They also have three handsome sons and one beautiful daughter-in-law.

Husband Bill restores old cars, and they are both members of the Southern Cruisers Car Club, a philanthropic group of car lovers who show their antique cars to raise money for charity.

Karen’s favorite verse: “Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on Thee; because he trusteth in Thee.  Trust ye in the Lord forever; for in the Lord Jehovah is everlasting strength.” – Isaiah 26:3-4
