It is with a mix of profound sadness yet great peace that we announce the passing of Karen Janet Trevors on November 12, 2021, at the age of 66, at the Red Deer Hospice. She was deeply loved in life and will be greatly missed in death. Her legacy of faith lives on in her children and grandchildren.
Born on December 1, 1954 to Rowland and Collene Woolsey in Qu’appelle, Sask, Karen spent many of her childhood years in Morrin, AB. She worked as a court reporter for many years. She will be lovingly remembered by her husband Colin of 38 years, her daughter Chelsea (Jamie) Flaman and their children Isaac, Jenaya, Elliot, Luke, Micah & Makenna; her son, Evan Trevors; her daughter Vanessa (Adam) Green and their children William & Holland, her daughter by choice Janice (Keith) Richardson and their children Ashley & Brandon; her siblings Rod (Char) Woolsey & Allan (Irina) Woolsey; sisters-in-law Gloria Gourlay, Iva Trevors, Edna (Doug) Moorhouse, Phyllis (Dean) Stutheit, Jennifer (Corey) Dodge and brother-in-law Frankie (Ellen) Trevors and numerous nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her mother Collene (Comba) Woolsey ; her father Rowland Woolsey; and her mother-in-law Evelyn (Trevors) Hebert.
Karen was a beloved nana to her grandchildren, a faithful wife, loving mother, sister and friend to so many. With a heart for loving and ministering to people, she was an active member of her church prayer team and many other serving ministries. She loved people and was deeply passionate about her faith at the time of her stroke in 2019.
