Karen was born on September 24, 1955 and passed away on April 12, 2022. Karen is survived by her beloved husband of over 30 years, Richard Joseph Crowe, II; her loving parents, Kathryn and Edgar Landry; and the light of her life son, Wesley Joseph Crowe and his fiancé, Taylor Welker; her brothers, Frank Thaggard and his wife, Kathy and David Thaggard and his wife, Paula; her step-sister, Valerie (Landry) Sivil and her husband, Jim; her father–in–law, Dickie Crowe; and numerous nieces, nephews and other cherished family and devoted friends. She was preceded in death by her mother-in-law, Ann Crowe.
Karen’s legacy was truly her kindness to everyone. There was not a time that her thoughtfulness did not shine through. She was constantly sending cards and well wishes to people and friends in need. Richard called her his “flower-child” as she enjoyed being outdoors and finding beauty in the simple things. Many treasured memories were made at their family camp in Bienville Parish. Her home was a welcoming place for all. Family was her priority and she helped with their care and their businesses. Karen graduated Neville High School in 1973. She was a member of First West, but most recently began taking her parents to North Monroe Baptist Church so they could attend church. There was not a day that went by that Karen did not call or check on her parents. Karen was never judgmental and always looked for the good in people and situations. She was known to send uplifting messages and Bible verses to people that needed it and will be deeply missed by her friends and family.
Pallbearers honoring Karen will be Mark Anderson, Edwin Craft, Donald Reeves, Trey Nelson, Sid Green and Jacob Hardin. Honorary pallbearers will be Frederic Amman and Sam Trinca.
