Karen was born on October 21, 1966 to the late Rosemary and Joe Freeman in Durham, NC. She loved to entertain, hosting holiday and family celebrations for many years in her home.

She is survived by her daughters, Haleigh Thompson (Jonathan) and Lauren Thompson; grandsons, Blaine Mann and Briley Mann; sister, Crystal Womble; brother, Todd Freeman; her partner, James Hummel; many treasured nieces and nephews; and her sisterhood of Ya-Ya’s.
