Karin was a long time resident of Golden and would often be seen in Sobey’s as a cashier. She loved to chat and get to know her customers as they came into the store. When illness made it hard for her to work she eventually moved to Fort St. James to help care for her granddaughter. Karin’s grandchildren where a joy to her and always put a smile on her face. Karin enjoyed making crafts, quilting, crocheting and visiting the casino and playing bingo. She loved to spend time with family and friends and was often a catalyst for bringing them all together.
