NORRIE, Karen. January 27, 1941 – May 22, 2011. It is with great sadness we announce the passing of our dear mother, daughter, sister, aunt and friend. Karen passed away after a very brave battle with ovarian cancer. Karen leaves behind her beloved daughters Krista Shostak (Craig) and Janna Foreman (Adam) and her six precious grandchildren Paige, Ryan and Noah Shostak and Jack, Charley and Lexey Foreman. Karen also leaves behind her parents Gwen and Irwin Palmer, brothers Brian Anderson (Arleen), Richard Anderson (Pam), Tim Anderson (Patti), Stan Anderson (Sharon), Dean Palmer (Martha), Ian Palmer and her sister Debi Rumley (Jay). Karen was a proud aunt to 19 nieces and nephews and 8 great nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her father Harold Anderson. We would like to thank Dr. Andre Bredenkamp and his office staff for their caring, kindness and exceptional care. We would also like to thank all the Peace Arch Hospital Emergency staff and the 6th Floor North nursing staff and the Sanctuary in Hospice Care. You are angels living on earth and each and every one of you made a difference in Karen’s last days.
A memorial service will be held at Sunnyside United Church (15639-24th Avenue, Surrey BC) Friday May 27th, 2011 at 1:00 PM. In lieu of flowers the family requests that donations be made to either the Peace Arch Hospice Society or the Ovarian Cancer Society.
