Karen Elaine Casey, a lifelong resident of Bethany, Oklahoma, died unexpectedly on June 19th, 2021, at the age of 67. Karen is survived by her brother, Conrad Casey, of Stratford, Oklahoma; a niece Vicki Long and family, of Pauls Valley, Oklahoma; a nephew Chris Casey and Family, of Hobbs, New Mexico; Jaden Tarver, whom she loved like a nephew, of Riverside, CA; as well as numerous other relatives and friends.
Karen was born to Charles “Delbert” Casey and Betty Ji (Smith,) on November 18, 1953. She attended Putman City West and graduated in 1972. From there she joined the United States Army, where she served as a radio operator in Germany, and traveled all over the world. Upon returning to the States, she continued her service requirements with the Air National Guard, and later became a “Proud Gray Eagle,” joining the ANG Retiree Association.
Karen worked at Deaconess Hospital in an Administrative Lead role for many years and then became interested in Horticulture, returning to OSU-OKC to receive further education and training. She LOVED to create with her hands! Anything from sewing, crocheting, photography, crafting, producing arrangements of all kinds to designing seasonal scenes, backdrops, and landscape havens. Outdoor with nature was one place she truly found happiness and contentment.
She loved her family and enjoyed traveling. Therefore, trips to Michigan nearly every year, with her immediate family to see some of her favorite cousins and relatives, was an adventure she was always up for! Karen was an avid reader, antique collector, movie and music enthusiast, and connoisseur of Dr. Pepper and a good cheese pizza! Her laughter and sense of humor were both contagious and unique to her and will be missed.
