Karen loved her family very much and dedicated many hours of her life to making them happy along with her friends… SHE LOVED TO COOK!!!! And was so very giving with her cuisine and baked goods. Always sharing her gift of cooking with family, friends and anybody else that might be around. Her dishes were masterpieces.
She retired from TXDOT after a long and successful career and was just starting to enjoy her well earned retirement. Karen also owned a real estate company called KM Properties that she successfully managed until her parting. She had many other interest besides cooking also. She was a gifted artist in stained glass, drawing, painting and music, she played guitar and piano. Visiting friends and family, listening and dancing to music, and of course feeding people, were what made her the happiest.
Karen loved making the holidays extra special with not only her entrees and baked goods, but also with fun activities that would involve the whole family and friends at holiday gatherings. Especially the younger generation. The kids would be mesmerized with the whatever activity she would come up with and will have very fond memories of their Aunt Karen for the rest of their lives.
Karen’s wish was to have a party instead of a funeral service. It will take place on Saturday December 10th at the Murski farm at 4:44 p.m. Address: 8050 TX 105. There will be live music, snacks with tea & water. BYOB Donations can be made in her name to the American Cancer Society and the American Heart Association.
Karen was a deeply spiritual person and had a very strong desire for finding ways to be closer to God and do his works… there can be no denying that His will has been done through Karen Julia Murski. God’s Speed K.J.M and we love you very much!!
