It is with sadness that the family of Karen Gail McFarlane announce her passing in Red Deer, Alta. on Sat., June 12, 2021 at the age of 75 years.

Karen was born on Nov. 28, 1945 in Coronation, Alta. On Nov. 9, 1964 she married the love of her life, Jack McFarlane.

Karen and Jack were blessed with the birth of their twins, Harvey and Heather on Aug. 17, 1973.

She started her treasured role as Grandma on Oct. 17, 1995 when her first grandchild, Peri was born.

Four more grandchildren followed; Presly born on April 20, 1998, Lacey born Sept. 27, 2006, Jackson on Aug. 19, 2007 and Ansley born March 5, 2012.

Karen’s kindness combined with enormous amounts of empathy touched everyone who ever met her.

She will be deeply missed and never forgotten as her legacy lives on.

A private family internment will be held at a later date at the Coronation Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, those wishing to make a donation in Karen’s memory may do so to the Coronation Cemetery Fund.

Condolences can be left for the family at
