We know Karen's family from Spencer WI & have been fortunate to have her only brother, Douglas Norman, in our immediate family having Doug & our sister Lou Ann married almost 41 yrs ago; over the year's Karen , her husband Dennis Larson (passed away only a couple years ago) & their children & grandchildren were regularly part of family conversations/updates from the West ... always having admired the Mellenthin/Larson families - our hearts go out to Karen's loved ones, friends & all who had the honor of knowing her (even moreso than some of us of us from the central WI area) - Peace
