Karen Tomkinson

August 12, 1949 - March 29, 2012


TOMKINSON: Karen Audrey
Oct, 12 1949 – Mar, 29 2012

It is with heartfelt sadness, that the family announces the passing of Karen on March 29th, 2012, at the age of 62 years, at home with family by her side. Predeceased by her parents, Frank and Dariel Hill, she is survived by spouse, Steve Williams; son, Mike Tomkinson; daughter, Joanne Tomkinson (Andy); grandchildren, Mike and Desiree Tomkinson; step grandchildren, Tyler and Brandie Abbott; Brandon and Cathryn Golob. She is also survived by her sisters Kathy, Joan, Linda and brother Dave; and nieces and nephews. Karen was born in Vernon and raised in Kamloops, B.C. Karen moved to the Cowichan Lake area in 1977 with her two children. Karen worked at the Elks Club in Lake Cowichan as a bartender and ended her career 20+ years later as bar manager. Karen had a generous heart. If someone needed a shoulder to lean on, Karen was there. Her kind spirit could bring the best out in people. Her contagious smile will be missed by us all. Karen’s favorite pastimes were, making Flower Baskets in the spring, mushroom picking in the Fall and watching the Canucks score.
Special thanks to Gail Lowery for her loving support in a time of need. To respect Karen’s wishes there will be no service.
Donations to the Canadian Cancer Society, 100-394 Duncan St, Duncan B.C. V9L 3W4, will be appreciated. On line condolences may be made at hwwallacecbc.com
