Karen Louise Letourneau was born on January 14, 1948 in Detroit, Michigan. She was one of four children born from the union of her parents: the late William Letourneau and the late Rosanna (Lalonde) Letourneau. She received her education from Jefferson High School and graduated with the class of 1966.
In her younger years, Karen enjoyed bowling with friends and family. She enjoyed having a good time and would never turn down an evening with friends playing one of many card games or BINGO. Karen was an avid fan of the Detroit Tigers and wouldn’t miss a game. She loved Elvis Presley and has accumulated many Elvis memorabilia items throughout her years.
Above everything, Karen loved her family. She was a good mother, a great grandmother and she loved her nieces and nephews, some of which she raised as her own. She was a call-it-how-ya-see it kind of gal, but did not let that outshine her kind, loving and gentle personality.
