KINSMAN — The family of Karen Powell Lloyd, 68, of Kinsman, is sad to announce her passing, at her home on Thursday, March 16, 2023, following a battle with cancer. She was surrounded by her loving family when she passed and entered her heavenly home.
She was born March 31, 1954, in Warren, the daughter of Norman Lee and Isabelle Scott Powell.
Karen was dedicated to being a caregiver for her family in many ways. She was a personal caregiver for her former father-in-law, husband and others through the years. She always put others first and was generous with her love and time. She loved spending time with her family, feeding and watching birds with her mother, especially hummingbirds, and was an amazing cook and able to make something out of nothing. In her younger years, Karen loved to roller skate with friends and family. Although miles apart for many years, she and her four girls used music to comfort them. They will forever hold a few songs dear to their hearts — Donna Fargo’s “Happiest Girl in the Whole USA,” Miranda Lambert’s “Bluebird,” Whitney Houston’s “I Look to You” and Jenn Bostic’s “Jealous of the Angels.”
Karen’s family would like to thank her best friend, Jean Rondini, for being such a special friend through all the years.
Karen is survived by her husband, Collins W. Lloyd of Kinsman, whom she married March 21, 1992; her four daughters who were her world and consumed her heart, Sherry Lynn (Padrick) Brown of Warren, Terri Ann Fisher (Greg Angiolieri) of Franklin, Pa., Carrie Sue (Jason) Ace, also of Franklin, Pa., and Mary Jane (Andy) Wheeler of Mount Vernon; her stepdaughter, Telina Walker of Warren; stepson, Wayne Lloyd Jr. of Johnston; stepdaughter, Loretta Bartram of Warren; her mom, Isabelle Powell of Kinsman; two sisters, Debbie (Richard) Owen and Mary Lou (Mike) Mills, both of Kinsman; her six grandchildren, Joshua, Matthew, Tessa, Nathan, Jordan and Keagan; one great-granddaughter, Olivianna, and one on the way.
She was preceded in death by her father and stepson, Collie Lloyd.
A private ceremony with close family members was already held.
Karen’s final resting place will be in Johnston Cemetery.
