She was a bargain hunter and collector, but was more apt to make purchases for others before herself.

She was preceded in death by her husband James Darrell Karther, brother Merle Lewis Lamb, and her parents Ozzie and Ruby Lamb.

She is survived by her daughter Dawn (Jermiah) Dixon, grandson Zachary Denney and granddaughter Cheyenne (Gary) Cameron, great-granddaughters Adrianna, Bailey, Ryder and Luna, and great-grandsons Ethan, Sylas and Niklaus.

    Dawn, I’m so sorry to hear. I know how difficult it is to lose a parent. She obviously was full of life and played a huge part with your Girl Scouts. Praying that you, Cheyenne and the rest of your family find peace during this time.
