Karen A. Wolfe

| March 22, 2024 3:38 PM

Karen A. Wolfe of Spokane, Wash. passed away March 17, 2024, at the age of 63 in Spokane, Wash. She was born June 25, 1960, in Spokane. After 14 years in Spokane, she moved with her family to Moses Lake, Wash. She briefly lived in California for a few years, then came back.

Karen graduated with an associate degree in journalism and worked as a freelance journalist coordinator for newspapers. She also worked as an AT&T operator for a period.

She is preceded in death by her father, Earl L. Wolfe (1990), brother-in-law Richard Robinson (1990), son Jack Wolfe (1991) and nephew Adam Wolfe (2020).

She is survived by her mother, Dolores R Burnham, siblings and their spouses, Kathy (Jim) Kaiser, Connie (Charles) Norton, Mike (Michele) Wolfe, Greg (Rhiannon) Wolfe, and many nieces and nephews.

Karen was very creative, energetic, and always thinking outside the box. She had a big heart and loved her family — including her children who were the highlight of her life and gave her a reason to continue.

Karen, we will miss your energetic, intelligent, fun-loving, positive attitude and big heart. You will always be in our hearts.

“For me, becoming isn’t about arriving somewhere or achieving a certain aim. I see it instead as forward motion, a means of evolving, and a way to reach continuously toward a better self. The journey doesn’t end.” — Michelle Obama
