Karen Barbara (Hovind) Stevens

February 15, 1939 ~ December 23, 2018 (age 79)


Verona - Karen B. Stevens, age 79, passed away on Sunday, December 23, 2018 at Badger Prairie Health Care Center.  She was born on February 15, 1939 in Menominee, Michigan, the daughter of James and Barbara (Bally) Hovind.

      She is survived by her son Eric (Michelle) Stevens of Boulder, Colorado and grandchildren, Colton and Caleb.

      Karen was an avid reader and you could usually find her with a book in hand or close by.  She especially enjoyed reading fiction involving the legal profession.  Perhaps this was due to her career as a paralegal with Foley and Lardner LLP.  She loved her furry feline friends and owned a number of cats through the years remembered fondly by the many photographs she kept of them.

      Karen's ashes will be interred at Forest Hills Cemetery next to her parents.

      A special thanks to the staff at Badger Prairie Health Care Center for the compassionate care they gave Karen.
