Karen Macdonald Adams passed away February 3, 2019 in Mesa, AZ surrounded by all of her children and her husband. She is survived by her husband, David; her five children Michelle and Dave, Ingrid and Scott, David and Tasha, Julie and Brad, and Clint and Alix; 16 grandchildren; and one great-grandchild.
Karen was a remarkable woman. Her joy and legacy were her family. She loved her children and grandchildren with a relentless loyalty, always attending games, performances, and activities. Karen had the ability to bring people together and to enjoy life to the fullest.
Her tenacity for life was shown in her love of travel, her outgoing personality, and her effortless ability to serve everyone around her. She traveled the world with her husband David, her friends, and her family. Karen never met a stranger.
Karen loved the gospel and her Savior. That love was integrated into the way she treated others. She loved without question and found great comfort in the closeness she felt with each of her children. As a mother, wife, aunt, grandma, and friend, she will be greatly missed.
Her family takes comfort in knowing that families are forever and she has joined her parents Keith and Ada, her brother Edwin, her daughter Allison, and her grandson Troy.
Her family knows she is busy elsewhere, and they look forward to reuniting with her. Karen is very loved.
A viewing in honor of Karen will be held Saturday, February 9 from 9:30-11:30 a.m. Following the viewing, a funeral service will commence at 12 p.m. The viewing and funeral services will take place at the Monticello North LDS Chapel.
