Karren A. Smith (Keller) was welcomed into heaven on Thursday, July 26, 2018.

Karren was born to the late Josephine Keller on March 30, 1939. She was a selfless woman and a hard worker. She held many jobs over her lifetime, but her most fulfilling was working for Safe @ Home Senior Care as a home health care provider. Karren loved having a job taking care of others and it never felt like "work" to her.

She is survived by her children, Debbie (Brian) Lawrence, Linda (Wayne) Eckwright, Carey (Twila) Pritchett, Tammy (Dan) Iwinski, Scott (Manda) Pritchett, Nicole (Jamie) Pahl, Mike (Jane) Cynor, Ron (Karen) Cynor, and Cary (Liz) Cynor; 23 grandchildren; 42 great grandchildren; one great, great grandchild; loving companion, Dave Johnson; and many other family and friends.

Karren was preceded in death by her mother; grandson, Jaime Smith; and many other family and friends.

Honoring a life with a meaningful service is an important step in the grief process and is a gift to their family and friends —
a gift of memories and a gift of healing
