I met Karen when we ran cross-country together in high school, and was lucky to remain friends with her. I feel so blessed to be among those who knew and love her - she was a light in this world and I will miss her forever. Thinking of her daughters and Mike, her parents, her brothers, her sisters-in-law, her nieces and nephews...and all who love her. She touched more lives than can ever be counted!

Karen was truly an angel. I have always and will continue to cherish all of the wonderful memories of our time at Marist. She had a thousand watt smile and equally bright personality. I know I speak for others in the Marist community who are devastated by this loss. I want to send my deepest condolences to Mike, the children and family. God Bless you all in this time and God Bless Karen and all of the joy and positivity she brought.

Karen was such a beautiful person inside and out! The world has lost such a beautiful person who could light up any room. Karen and I became friends through running we ran x-country and track together in HS and College and they are some of the best memories of my life. When I started looking through pictures of all our adventures all I could do was smile and say thank you god for blessing me with such a beautiful friend. Karen your smile, your laugh, your enthusiasm I will never forget!! I am so sorry for her family and friends because we all lost such a beautiful person. God now has a beautiful angel love you Karen xoxo

We love you, Karen, you will be missed and your memory will live on forever. I am so devastated. What happened to you is not fair. You were always the. Beacon of health and happiness. You always made me feel good and supported me in so many ways. I've always admired you, how strong and happy you always were. You inspired me to start running, when I never thought I could do it. You were there for my half and full marathon. Always cheering me on. Always so loving. I always have to remind myself that God Has A Plan...I might not know why He chose to take you when he did but I have faith that He knows best. One day I might know too. God Bless. I promise I'll help your Girls in any way I can. ❤❤❤. Always in my heart ❤❤❤

My fondest memories of Karen are when she ran track with my daughter, Nicole. I’ll always remember the many meets from cross country, winter and spring that Bill, I and her mom and dad cheered on our girls. Karen would always be smiling. I can’t forget the track team stopping by my house for water when they were out on a practice run. Even after Nicole graduated Karen, Mary and the rest of the girls would still stop by. Our prayers are with you all

My heart breaks.. I was Karen’s HS Track and Cross Country Coach....she was a shining light who always went the extra mile for everyone.....not many like her.
Francesca left a message on March 23, 2020:
I remember running the Spring into Summer 5k in Middletown. I saw these women in black shirts with a pink logo, and especially noticed the woman leading them and cheering them on. Her enthusiasm and energy was inspiring ... not to mention her beautiful smile. After the race I immediately went up to her and asked how do I get involved with this great group? The group was Women on the Run and that lady was Karen Carson. That was 7 yrs ago. I loved it. The last few years scheduling got in the way but I will be forever grateful that I got to run this last season with this great group and inspiring coach. RIP Karen thank you for inspiring us all . I will think of you often with every step.
