Our condolences to Media-Com Akron market talk WNIR/100.1's Bob Klaus on the passing of his wife, Karen, who has died after an 18 year fight with cancer.
Quoting from the death notice which ran in the Akron Beacon Journal on Monday morning...
Karen was a devoted mother and wife, world adventurer, free spirit, animal advocate, nature lover, swimmer, skier, horseback rider, mountain biker and hiker. She used her immense creativity to make beautiful purses, jewelry, ceramics, writings, gardens and two dynamic children.
During Karen's 18 year battle with cancer, those closest to her have been strengthened by her will to live and blessed with an inspiring outlook on life. While Karen's time on Earth was far too short, her spirit now resides permanently and safely in the hearts and minds of all who knew and loved her.
