Karen Kay Oakerson of Farmland, who was born May 9, 1948, passed away at 6:41 pm on April 30th at Ball Hospital.
Karen was married to her best friend Gene for 35 years. Although the only child of Juanita Williams and Raymond Reynolds, who both preceded her in death, she felt blessed to have an enduring kinship to Boone and Sonnie Oakerson, Phyllis Cadwallader and Ronnie and Sherry Oakerson – Gene’s siblings.
Although she never met a stranger and welcomed everyone into the family with open arms, she will be deeply missed by her children Kimberly (John) Gibson, Melissa Wilson, Kelli Grove, Judy (Mary) Oakerson, Becky Hannah, and Artie (Mary) McGrew.
She touched the lives of many people including her 14 grandchildren, 16 great grandchildren and 3 great great grandchildren. A granddaughter, Jenny Haskell, also preceded her in death.
No matter what she was doing, whether it was serving ice cream at Jerry’s Dairy Bar with Lori and “the kids” or spending hours looking for just the right card, she did it with love and a smile on her face.
Visitation will be 12:00 to 2:00 PM of Friday, May 4, at Culberson Funeral Home, Hagerstown. Services will follow at 2:00 PM. Her final resting place will be Riverside Cemetery, near Losantville.
