Karen Leslie Parker, age 63, died unexpectedly, on Saturday, March 13, 2021, at her home in Middleborough, Massachusetts.
Karen was born August 14, 1957, in Randolph, the daughter of the late Shirley and James Heffernan.
Karen graduated Randolph High, met Bernard (Biff) McGrath, married, and moved to Middleborough. Together they raised an amazing family. Her children, now grown, successful, and raising their own families were taught many lessons, and learned from the good and bad life can often bring.
In later years, Karen fell in love with, and married Charlie Parker, with whom she is now reunited. Through it all, Karen was an avid sports fan and NASCAR enthusiast, quick with a laugh or quip to make you smile.
Karen will be remembered by her children: her daughter Shannon and her husband Bill and their children Samantha and Liam; her son Adam and his wife Gina and son Cameron; and her daughter Lindsay and her husband Mike and their daughter Sara. Her siblings: James, Stephen, Pauline, Valerie, Brian and Michael will all hold her in their hearts until we are all united once again.
Karen will be interred with her husband Charlie at the Massachusetts National Cemetery in Bourne, on Tuesday, March 23, 2021.
