Karen Andersen Smith was born June 28, 1939 the third daughter of Edwin L. and Hilda Andersen. She passed away July 31, 2017 after a valiant battle with cancer.
Karen married Ben U. Smith January 9, 1965 they were later sealed in the Logan LDS Temple. Together they raised three sons: Kyle, Alan and Jeff and one daughter Katie.
Karen was a proud BYU graduate, she followed the family tradition and dedicated her life to nursing. She worked in many capacities during her career, which took her from California, Salt Lake, Ogden and to Brigham City. Karen worked delivery, ICU, ER and worked with the Red Cross for many years. She had a special love for the nursing profession and encouraged others to pursue it. She was a mentor to many.
Karen loved her mountain home in Mantua and all of her beautiful flowers. Her motto was “everything deserves a chance” from flowers, to people. She welcomed all with open arms and a giving heart.
Karen was active in the LDS Church and served in many capacities. Her favorite was chorister for she loved music.
She was preceded in death by her parents, sister Alvarene Warren, brother Kay, and her sweetheart and eternal companion Ben.
Karen is survived by her children: Kyle (Sharon) Smith; Alan (Sandy) Smith; Katie (David) Flinders and Jeff Smith. Her sister Pauline (Lamoine) Anhder, 11 grandchildren, five great-grandchildren, and many nieces and nephews who considered her a second Mom.
