NETELENBOS (NEE BELL), Karen Alison

Our extraordinary devoted mother and loving wife passed away on Thursday, July 5, 2018 at Kelowna General Hospital, British Columbia. Born in New Westminster on April 12, 1960, Karen excelled in many individual and team sports. She was also amazingly artistic, creating original works of pottery and arts and crafts projects. Before raising her family, Karen worked at the Calgary Police Service records section where she met her husband Jon. The most important thing in Karen’s life was her family. A resident of Peachland, BC since 2014, Karen cherished family excursions and holiday celebrations. She would so often say, “Family is everything.” At 58, she is survived by her dear husband Jon; children Nicole, Nathan (Jodi) and Nadine (Laine); grandsons Jack and Weston; loving parents Ray and Mary Bell; siblings Nancy, Cliff and Diane; nieces and nephews, and many more extended family members. The family wishes to thank the nurses of KGH 4 West who showed incredible compassion and empathy in delivering palliative care services to Karen. By request there shall be no service.

    Jon and family, we are so sorry to learn of Karen's passing. We always enjoyed working with Karen at CPS. You and Karen had the most wonderful surprise wedding in Confederation Park - what great fun. Our thoughts are with you and your family.
