Obituary of Karen Woods
Karen Sue Lusk Holbrook Woods, 66, of Greenvalley, went to be with the Lord on Friday, May 4, 2018, leaving from the home of her mother, after a short courageous battle with cancer.

Karen was the disabled owner and operator of Karen's Beauty Bar for 18 years. She was a faithful member of Becco United Baptist Church where she was a member of the Ladies Aide and the Choir. Karen loved to sing praises to the Lord and especially enjoyed singing with her husband Larry and brother Doug. She was a talented quilter and crafter making quilts for every member of her family. Karen loved to meet at her mothers, with her sister Janet, and sister-in-law, Connie who together are known as the Golden Girls.
