My deepest sympathy to Art and family. I worked with Karen at MWN for a number of years back in the 80’s. Karen was always kind, helpful, professional and a lot of fun! I can still picture the sparkle in her eye and her sweet smile. She loved her family and life. Sending you love and prayers.

Deepest condolences Art and family. I was so sorry to hear of Karen’s passing. Enjoyed working with her at Marshall Nelson’s for many years, and sharing birthday lunches with the girls in the office.

My heartfelt condolences! I knew Karen through my summertime work, and my dad's decades of work, at Marshall Nelson & Associates. Karen was as gracious and kind as she was capable. She was an inspiration! -- John Bartkowski

My sympathy to the family. Karen was a wonderful secretary and friend to my late husband Red Benson. She was so fun loving to all the employees at MWN, and a wonderful worker. I especially remember her beautiful smile and visiting with her at office gatherings. She was so proud of Debbie and her family, grandchildren were such a joy for her. Blessings to all of you. I have recently relocated from Mequon to San Marcos, Texas. Warm thoughts and prayers are with you. Sincerely, Leigh Benson
