January 14, 1979 ~ April 5, 2011

In loving memory of Karen Rebecca McRae. Karen died on April 5, 2011. Her death was very sudden and unexpected. Karen was born in Vancouver, Washington on January 14, 1979. Her home was always in Vancouver. She attended Pleasant Valley School from 1985 - 1993. She then went to Hudson's Bay High School where she graduated in 1997.
Her passions were many. She loved working with, playing with, and caring for pets and any animal on a personal and professional level. She loved being outdoors, camping out, hiking through forests and up hills, fishing, and most of all swimming in the lakes and rivers. She enjoyed reading and writing, music, photography, and was very creative, tech savvy and artistic. One notable accomplishment artistically are her many stunning landscape oil paintings. Karen was soft-spoken, easy-going, had a ready smile and was always ready to help. She was very likeable and if you knew her, you loved her.
She is survived by her grandmother, Dorothy McRae of Vancouver; father, Stuart McRae of Vancouver; mother, Jan Edwards of Vancouver; many aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews and good friends from Vancouver, other parts of the country and the world. She touched us all. We will miss her and hold our memories of all the good times with her close to our heart.
There will be a memorial service for her on Saturday, May 14th from 2:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m. at the Marshall Community Center in the Elm Room at 1009 E. McLoughlin Blvd. in Vancouver.
