Karen Christensen, Our Best Friend
Submitted by Family and Friends
Karen was a loving, giving person whose four children and husband, Bob, always thought of her as their best friend. Anyone else to whom she felt an affinity also thought of her as his or her best friend. I really don’t know anyone who cared about individuals as much as she did. There was an aura about her that when she passed on, a light went out in the world, leaving it a little less bright. She was a beacon of caring and strength for everything that was right.
Karen loved golf. She began her love of golf by going to the course with Bob. It quickly went from watching, to playing, to two spots in the MountainView/Preserve Women’s Golf Association trophy case. The first being for most improved golfer in 2006, which was preceded by a hole in one at #13 during women’s league play. Karen was passionate about golf, and working for Rally For The Cure, in which she was instrumental in raising thousands of dollars through the women’s golf association. She continued her love and passion for golf by joining the staff at the pro shop. There was really no one like Karen and she will be loved and missed by family and friends alike.
