Karen passed away peacefully at home,
surrounded by her loved ones, on December 19, 2023
at the age of 65 years.
Daughter of late Shirley Ball, she is survived by her loving husband Ronald Buchanan, her son Christopher (Lianne), her daughter Monica (Christopher), by her grandchildren Serena, Evan and Kaleb, as well as by her siblings Lynn, Kevin and Heather.
Known for her big heart, she loved her family most of all. She will also be missed by her nieces and nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews, and her several godchildren.
Growing up with a strong passion for sports, she was a naturally gifted soccer and softball player, and continued to support her family members’ sporting events throughout all levels of play.
For several years, she stood as a great leader in the Boy Scout community. Her devotion to the scouts was unmatched, having contributed to pinnacle moments in several individuals’ time there.
A celebration of Karen’s life will be held on Sunday, January 21, 2024,
at the Georgetown Presbyterian Church in Howick,
with visitation as of 1 p.m. followed by the service at 3 p.m.
