She was a wonderful mother who was always there when we needed her. She worked several small jobs while her children were growing up. But once her first grandchild arrived, she was a full-time babysitter for all of them at one time or another. Even while staying in the Assisted Living, she was still offering to care for her great grandchildren.
Karen was able to travel through her husband’s military life to some places overseas like Okinawa, Japan, she lived in several states throughout her life such as California, New York, New Mexico, but chose Utah to be her final home for family.
Karen grew up as a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Karen was preceded in death by her husband or 57 years Dannie R Williams, her parents Roy Clark Phipps and Theodora Nielson, her brother Wilford Moore, her sister Sally Marietti, and grandson Adam Jon Heulitt.
Karen was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. She enjoyed yard work, sewing, crafts, and music. She loved to go shopping for a bargain, camping, watching the grandchildren, and just hanging out on the couch watching QVC.
