Obituary of Karen Osborne
On the morning of January 26, 2019, Karen Lund Osborne, age 55, passed away at Good Samaritan Hospital in Suffern, N.Y.. Karen lived in Mahwah, N.J. with her beloved husband Timmy where they spent many happy days – her home was her heaven.
Karen was an incredible daughter, wife, sister, niece, aunt, cousin and friend to all. She was predeceased by her father, Donald Lund and is survived by her husband Timmy, mother (Elizabeth aka Tina), Sister (Lynn), brother (Donald aka Boomer), brother in law (Eric Muller) and nephews (Billy and Denis) as well as many Aunts, cousins, friends and family.
Karen was the adhesive that kept the family together, keeping the lines of communication open while we all went about our busy days. She was a super hero that could be available at a moment’s notice to help anyone that needed her. She was as generous and selfless as anyone could ever be, all while remaining strong and steadfast to let others lean on her when needed, often putting her own needs to the side. Karen could keep your secrets and just offer a strong shoulder when you needed it most.
Karen was a talented craftsperson who enjoyed sharing her creations with family and friends. She loved many things including Christmas celebrations, rock concerts, WWF Wrestling events, trips to Cracker Barrel and was passionate about supporting charities close to her heart such as the Lakota Wolf Preserve and the Richard Jacob Rudy Memorial Fund. Her travels with Timmy and her nephews included trips to Gettysburg, Wildwood and Florida to see old friends and make new ones along the way. Karen never dreamed of travelling overseas, as she knew that the best place to be was close to home near her loved ones. Karen and Timmy created their beautiful home together and were happiest when gathering with family and friends there.
If there were medals for performing simple acts of kindness, Karen would have a house full of them. She had a sense of humor (with a little bit of mischief too) and enjoyed a great story, laughing out loud and making sure that we all knew ‘Dilly Dilly’.
There are too few Karen’s in this world – we should all try to be like her. We were truly blessed to have her in our lives.
A memorial service to celebrate Karen’s life will be held at Sorce Funeral Home, West Nyack, NY on Saturday, February 2, 2019 between 2:00 – 5:00 pm. In lieu of flowers, donations to the charities that Karen supported are appreciated.
