Karen was born on February 10, 1960 in Lincoln, Nebraska to Gordon and Vada Minnig. She moved to Colorado in 1971, married and in 1988 her son Nicholas was born. Karen worked in many different venues, including over the road trucking with her 2nd husband and son, in car parts distribution, information handling and finally as a computer software support representative. She moved to Bellingham, Washington in 2012 and found her niche there with the rainy and cool weather.
Karen enjoyed scrapbooking, jewelry making, crocheting, napping, Starbucks, Sriracha sauce, green tea and dining adventures with friends.
She is survived by her son Nicholas Moore; grandchildren Jayden, Lukas and Claire; daughter-in-love Annie Piccolella, all of Texas and sister Kim (Tom) Hurst of Colorado. Karen is preceded in death by her parents and 2 brothers.
She will be missed by many; her Starbucks “peeps”, team of Ditzy Chicks, her family, coworkers, customers, and her friends from Northwest Baptist Church.
In lieu of flowers memorials may be made in Karens name to Breast Cancer research or Whatcom Hospice.
Karen’s life was a blessing and her memory will be our treasure for a lifetime.

What a special person. In her life, Karen touched the lives of many. She will continue to make a lasting impact in memory. Her love for green tea and Sriracha, but most of all her love for her peeps, will not be forgotten. Rest in peace, Karen🩷

From Terri (Minnig)…

I am so glad I made a trip to see Karen last spring. We had a wonderful time. The only thing we did not get to do was go whale watching. Aunt Karen I will miss you! Much love.

One of the Starbucks friends, I knew Karen only for 6 months or so, but am always impressed by her buoyancy, despite the challenges her life offered. She knew how to use them to shine and share the shine all round her. Ill just bet the light she shared in Starbucks will just keep on shining there! Thanks for being you Karen. And blessings as you are free from suffering. Much fondness, Veronica
