Today we celebrate the life of our dearly beloved Karen Lee Ladd. She was born in Brunswick, Georgia and grew up in the Carolinas. Karen wanted to make sure you all knew she went out stubborn, calling all the shots right up until the very end. Her determination to fight through her cancer diagnosis and live life to the fullest made her a role model to all who knew her.
She marched to the beat of her own drum for sixty bright years, enjoying her family and friends dearly and opening her heart and home to those around her. A southern firecracker with an explosive (yet endearing) personality, she leaves behind a loving soulmate Kevin Young of Davie FL, a sister Debbie (Curt) Koller of Rock Hill, SC; brother John (Linda) Ladd of Delaware; a son JD (Monica) of Minneapolis, MN.; three adoring grandchildren, and cousins Joanne, Brian, Brianna, and Weston McKnight.
In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate donations in Karen's memory be mailed to:
