On Friday, November 27, 2020, Karen Dawn Amason, loving wife, mother, grandmother, and great grandmother, went home to be with the Lord at the age of 64.
Karen was born on November 19, 1954 in Peculiar, MO to Eugene and Maxine Fannin. She was a sassy, scrappy, fireball of a woman, who had a fierce loyalty to her family and an unrivaled love for lighthouses. She was spunky, even as recently as November 7th, when she was cutting the rug at her grandson’s wedding, all while wearing oxygen. Not much really slowed her down. Ultimately it was this drive that kept her on this earth longer than the doctor’s expected, and it’s just the way she liked it.
Karen married David Amason on February 14, 2009. She was known for her positive attitude, and her kindness to everyone she met. She always pointed people to Jesus and reminded them of His great love for them. Besides her faith, her deepest passion was for her family. She loved to travel, smiley faces, lighthouses, and tropical beaches.
Karen was preceded in death by her father, Eugene, and her mother, Maxine. Her brothers, James, Robert (Bobby) and Dennis and grandson Dominique. She is survived by her husband David, her children, Chris and Melinda Ennis, Rick and Dianne Ennis and Shawn and Magen Ennis, her step sons Stephen and Alisha Amason and Daniel Jessica Amason and her brother Mike, 15 grandchildren, Dakota, Kasie, Daryn, Kaelyn, Chance, Destany, Trysten, Zach, Ewan, Miles, Declan, Ryen, Ariadne, Elizabeth, Tommy and 1 great grandchild, Sage and several nieces and nephews. Whew, I think that’s all of ‘em.
For anyone who knew Karen, you knew her kindness, compassion and her heart swelled with pride when talking about her family. She’d give you every bit of money in her pocket if you needed it, or every last second of her time if it meant someone was listening. She was just that way.
For those left behind there will always be a Karen shaped hole in our hearts, but we celebrate the knowledge that the instant she stopped breathing on this earth, the pain ceased and she was in the Presence of God.
Karen, your friends, and family love and miss you!
