    Karen Robertson Bohn, age 75, died unexpectedly on Sunday, Oct. 31, 2010. Karen, the oldest child of Irene Jessen and Loren Leon Robertson was born on April 11, 1935 in Moab, Utah.

    She attended school in Grand County, except for a short time in California. She graduated from Grand County High School and went to Salt Lake City, where she graduated from Henagar’s Business College.

    Karen married her devoted husband, Douglas, on Feb. 21, 1955 and from that moment on they were inseparable, never doing something without the other. They later moved back to Moab, settling in happily with family and friends.

    Karen worked at Maverik for many years, where she enjoyed meeting and visiting people. She was well known for her contagious laugh and great sense of humor. Even though she spoke her mind, she had a heart of gold, giving generously and rearranging her schedule to help family or friends.

    She was a fantastic cook and a meticulous seamstress. She also loved to make quilts especially for new babies. Curling up with a good book was her idea of pure pleasure. She was an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, serving in many capacities – her favorite being as a Cub Scout leader, which she held for 12 years.

    Karen’s greatest treasure was her family and grandchildren. Words cannot express how much we all will miss her.

    She is survived by her loving husband, Douglas, her children, Kenneth Bohn (Brenda) of Las Vegas, Nev., Jay Bohn of Moab, Utah, and Stephanie Carattini (Paul) of Las Vegas, Nev.; nine grandchildren and one great-grandchild; her siblings, Linda Harris (Dale) of Cedar City, Utah, and Kent Robertson (Darlene) of Sunnyvale, Calif; her sister-in-law, Taunnie Soderberg, of Salt Lake City; and many nieces and nephews.

    She was preceded in death by her parents and her daughter, Kristin House (Leroy).

    Funeral services will be held Saturday, Nov. 6, 2010 at 11 a.m. at the LDS Stake Center on Locust Lane. Friends may call at the church from 9:30-10:30 a.m. prior to services. Interment will take place in Sunset Memorial Gardens Cemetery in Moab.
