Karen Lee Smith
September 8, 2022
It is with a sad heart that I announce the passing of Karen on July 20, 2022.
Karen was born May 18, 1957, in Shelton, WA.
She was a loving wife, mother and grandmother. Her passion was her grandkids. She loved doing native bead work and was a "giver." She always gave from her heart.
She is survived by her husband Earl Smith, daughter Marah Valentine, grandkids; Neveah, Zack and Brianna; brothers Ken Kingery, Doug Kingery and Darren Kingery. Karen was preceded in death by her father, William Kingery and mother, Helen Leerma (Dunbar) Kingery.
We are not holding a funeral for Karen at this time. We will be hosting a Celebration of Karen's Life within one year of her passing out at Ocean Shores, WA. The details will be announced at a later date.
