It is with sorrow that we announce that Karen Kirkby, long time member of Living Christ, passed from this life to the next on Friday, August 24. Our heartfelt sympathy is with Ralph, her sons Brandon and Brian, her siblings Kris and Bob, and the rest of the family. Karen's rehab and recovery after a devastating stroke last year was long and difficult, and we know she is now at peace and joyful in the presence of God.
