Karen Witter Obituary, Death – The death of Karen Witter came as a shock to everyone. Karen has spent her entire life in the Spokane region. Earl and Marie Witter, who ran Witter’s Greenhouse on South Hill, were her parents. When she was younger, she enjoyed pitching in to help her parents and siblings tend to the garden and greenhouse. Both Adams Elementary and McKinley High School were among her alma maters. For many years of her adult life, Karen volunteered for groups like the Salvation Army and Second Harvest Food Bank.
In addition, she had been a regular at Providence’s Adult Day Health center for many years. She found great fulfillment in serving as a church choir singer and often attending services. She loved playing bingo, as well as puzzles, coffee, and music in her spare time. She had a great spot for animals in general, but her chihuahua, Pepper, was her absolute favorite. Her bright, ever-present grin and loud, hearty laughter will be the things people remember most about her.
Her entire family predeceased her: parents Earl and Marie and siblings Lawrence, Marie Nible, Don, Richard, Gary, and Bob. She has six siblings: Lynn Pearson, Butch Witter, Diane Stoaks, Marge Andrews, and Paul Witter. She also leaves behind a large group of nieces and nephews, in addition to many friends. Karen’s family has asked that in lieu of traditional burial rites, individuals who wish to honor her memory simply spend the day being as happy and kind to others as she would have been. Spend time with loved ones, catch up with a pal over coffee, or help out a worthy cause. The family requests that, in lieu of flowers, contributions be sent in Karen’s honor to SpokAnimal. I appreciate the Alderwood Manor family very much.
