Obituary of Karen Sue Plett

Karen Sue Plett was born Dec 22,1947 and entered into rest Feb 3, 2020, after a heroic battle with cancer.  Her parents were Clarence and Evelyn Plett, of Caldwell, ID.

 Karen grew up in the peaceful 1950’s in Escondido, CA.  As a little girl, she loved playing outdoors with all the neighbor kids, especially with plastic action figures with an “old west” theme.

She was a member of Girl Scouts, USA, and traveled with her troop to an international  house of friendship in Cuernavaca, Mexico.  She was a member of the First Congregational Church.  She graduated from Escondido High School, class of 1966.

Karen moved to Caldwell, ID in 1980.  She was a long-time employee of West Valley Hospital, and later Diamond Z Manufacturing.  She was a faithful member of Caldwell United Methodist Church.  She enjoyed exercising with her friends at Classy Fitness.

Karen loved decorating for staff parties and church functions.  She was a generous and loving daughter, sister, aunt, and friend.

Karen was a life-long learner, acquiring an encyclopedic knowledge of Elizabethan England and ancient Egypt.  She adored her faithful dogs, first Duffy, then little Zeus.  She loved her 3 trips to Las Vegas.

All of us will miss Karen, friends and family:  sisters Kathy (Steve) and Connie (Tom); nieces Joanna (Demian) and Sarah (Eric); nephew Nick (Cristina);  and “grands” Madelyn, Jenna, Evelyn, Max, Noah, Justine, and Eden; “great-grand” Oliver.
