Karla was a graduate of Marion Franklin High School of Columbus, Ohio. She was a kind and loving woman. She has been a member of First Carmel Baptist Church since 1981. Where she served as president of Pastor’s Aid, a member of the trustee board, and a faithful member of the choir.
Karla’s main objection in life was to encourage the youth. She was very family oriented. She found the craziest ways to put a smile on your face. Upon arrival to Karla’s home, you had no choice but to endure in warm and loving hugs and kisses; and couldn’t leave her presence until you scheduled a follow up visit to see her. Karla was more than a daughter, sister or mother, grandmother and friend. She was a blessing to all of us. She will be forever missed, but never forgotten.
