Obituary for Karen S. Runion

Karen S. Runion, age 60, of Woodville, went home to be with her Lord and Savior on Tuesday June 18, 2019. She was born Karen Hoover in Oregon, OH, on April 17, 1959 to Frank and Martha (Johnson) Hoover. She would later marry William A. Runion, and the two of them would celebrate 33 years together. While she worked in various capacities, the last eight years she has been with Reinos Linen Service in Gibsonburg. Karen was a woman of devout faith and was a member of the Elmore Church of God. Her family recalls her being a selfless and hardworking lady with a personal motto of “giving 110%”. It was family that brought her the greatest joy; be it the love she shared for her husband Bill, or just being with those closest to her. She will be greatly missed by all those that love her.

In addition to her husband Bill, Karen is survived by her mother: Martha Hoover of Woodville, sisters: Gloria (Tim) Traxler of Sandusky, Laurie (Paul) Dupler of Elmore, Connie (Bob) Jenkins of Willowwood and brother: Frank (Gina) Hoover of Temperance, MI, numerous Nieces and Nephews and faithful canine companion and friend, her pug Chewy. She is preceded in death by her father, Frank Hoover and sister, Pam Camp.
