Karen S (Williams) Haynes

April 10, 1955 ~ November 6, 2017 (age 62)

Karen Sue "Williams" Haynes April 10, 1955 - November 6, 2017 at 9:11am. Reborn October 19, 2017 to our Lord Jesus Christ. "Plans are nothing, planning is everything" (Dwight D. Eisenhower) April 10, 1955, in Marion, Indiana, Karen Sue was born to Charles R. and Iris S. Williams. So with that, she is planning on telling you a few things about her life, lessons, love and family through her words and some lessons her children learned. Karen grew up around horses, great danes, restaurant business, and sisters, Nancy E. (Tom) Strayer, and the late E. Louann Ludwig. There's nothing better than a good meal with loving family and conversation around the table. Take time to sit, drink coffee, and talk to each other. November 24, 1977, Karen married an ornery man, David R. Haynes, preceding her in death June 19, 2011, and gained two daughters, Christina (Joseph) Kruemmer, and Sharon Aughinbaugh, and one son, Brian Haynes. With a little more planning, her son "Insky", Richard Adam Haynes, was born. She took the loving care and responsibility to raise all these children to love life, respect parents and authority, and be humble and responsible for your actions. She loved family gatherings and the usefulness of family at the dinner table to learn, grow together, and discipline when necessary. The purpose of discipline is to actually learn a lesson and correct our lives, not just to have a sore butt or a sore ear. There is no length too far or effort insurmountable to keep kids on the right path. Developing minds need to be told and shown that path to internalize this concept in order to lead their own lives full of happiness, discipline, order and freedom. Seek lives of faith, realize the importance of education, and have the freedom and confidence to initiate independent thought, a wealth afforded to family and friends. With this wealth of knowledge, there is no height that can't be reached. Every step along the way, infinite love and support was given. Karen gained many lifelong friends throughout her 41 year career of being a floral designer. Starting at Lloyds in 1973, in 1978 she moved to Evansville, In. for 5 years, then back to Marion, In. retiring from Kelly's Flowers in 2014

Life is full of struggles and challenges, but the love and support of family and friends will help you through. That's why it's so important to communicate with your loved ones. Karen always says "I'm so lucky. I'm loved". Survivors besides her sister and children include 5 grandchildren, 4 great grandchildren, 6 nieces, 5 nephews, 1 aunt and 1 uncle and their families, and several great nieces and great nephews and a sister-in-law,

A celebration of Karen's life will be held in her home Saturday, November 18 from 1-4 pm. All family and friends are welcome. In lieu of flowers, please make it a daily goal to make someone's heart happy and love each other.
