Obituary for Karen G. Happeny

Karen Happeny, age 79, of Elmore, passed away on April 28, 2019 at the Ebeid Hospice Residence in Sylvania. She was born in Cadillac, Michigan, in 1940 to Madeline and James Anderson. She was a graduate of Arthur Hill High School, in Saginaw, Michigan.

Karen worked for many years at the Wood County Board of Developmental Disabilities before she retired in 2006. She loved her job, and often spoke of how much she valued her relationships with her co-workers and the individuals who received services. Karen loved a good laugh and a good time, and entertained us with many great stories about her adventures over the years. She was an avid reader and golfer, and loved to walk her beloved dog Sam. Karen’s proudest moments focused on her grandchildren and great-grandchildren, and she cherished spending time with them and being “Grandma K”.

She was preceded in death by her husband Paul, and her first husband, Neil Tuttle. She is survived by her children, Holly (Tony) Hernandez, and Brad (Cari) Tuttle; grandchildren, Joshua Tuttle, Jessica (Chris) Smith, Jordan (John) Williams, and Alex (Carissa) Hernandez; five great-grandchildren; brother James (Linda) Anderson, a niece and nephew, and many cousins. She will also be remembered by her former exchange student, Elaine Viegas of Brazil, and many friends.

Family and friends will be received on 6-8 p.m., Friday, May 17, 2019 at the Marsh & Marsteller Funeral Home, 201 West Main Street, Woodville, OH.
