Obituary

Karen Mae Carrier

A loving wife, mother, grandmother, and sister of Ruby, passed away on Monday, February 3, 2020, at the University of Michigan Hospital in Ann Arbor at the age of 61 surrounded by her family.

She was born in Port Huron, Michigan on May 14, 1958, daughter of the late Wilbur and Bernice (Preston) Smith.

She married her best friend Brian Carrier on July 27, 1979, in Port Huron.

Karen was very active in various local clubs and organizations, including St. Clair County 4-H in which she was a leader for over 20 years, cub scouts, and Westhaven Baptist where she taught junior church. She was a board member at the Four Square Sportsman Club where she also ran the kitchen. Karen liked staying busy and was often spending her time making crafts, sewing, playing with everyone's kids, hosting parties, camping, cooking, gardening, and most importantly having her grandchildren over to stay. Karen was never short on words and made a friend wherever she went. She was the most selfless person, always lending a helping hand. The precious memories she made with her family will be cherished, remembered, and celebrated for eternity.

Surviving in addition to her loving husband Brian of 40 years are her children, Brad (Kim) Carrier of Avoca, Matthew Carrier of Port Huron, and Nicole (Jeffrey) Francek of Kenockee Township; grandchildren, Brooke, Logan, Raya, and Troy; siblings; Eleanor Genaw, Elaine (Bill) Shirkey, Gordon (Cheryl) Smith, Stella (Jerry) Hoskins, Chuck (Sue) Smith, Will (Kathy) Smith, and Julie Smith; brothers and sister-in-laws, Robert (Linda) Carrier, Janice Carrier, Sue (Mike) Rose, Sharon (Jerry) Bailey, Tom (Amy) Carrier, and Debbie (Bill) Randazzo; as well as many nieces, nephews, and dear friends.

The family honors the memory of Karen and invites you to visit and share memories on Friday, February 7, 2020, from 2:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at Smith Family Funeral Home-Hancock Street. A funeral service will be held on Saturday, February 8, 2020, at 11:00 a.m. in the funeral home. Pastor Randy Pouliot will officiate. Interment will follow at Springhill Cemetery in Fargo.

Pallbearers for Karen will be Brad Carrier, Matthew Carrier, Jeffrey Francek, James Shirkey, Earl Smith, Adam Hoskins, Don Bailey, Curtis Garofalo, and Eddie Mathews.

In lieu of flowers, memorials can be made in Karen's honor to the St. Clair County 4-H Council.

I was Karen’s maid of honor in her wedding and her sister in law
My heart is broke I will love her forever and miss her forever. If everyone gave unconditional as she did this world would b a better place.
She was spunky! If she loved someone .. u better not Mess with them! She was protective of her loved ones!
She was unsure of Bill at first wanted to know what his intentions were! But they had a great relationship after she found out...
RIP my sweet sister

Karen and I grew up together, my sister Karen and her were best friends for ever. She was the sweetest person. The last time we talked we were at our friend's funeral not to long ago. I'm so sad, I will miss her and her smile and may she rest in peace. So many great memories. No more suffering. She is with God now in his loving care. Goodbye my friend. Love and prayers to Brian and your family.
