Karen Miller was born on December 6th, 1955 in Closter, New Jersey. With her birth brought a heart that was passionately layered with love and care for the world and the people in it. As a child her love of the Lord Jesus Christ and the Catholic Church built a never wavering devotion to treat all living creatures with love, respect and compassion. Her childhood was spent in Closter, New Jersey raised in a large Italian American family named Falasca. She was one of five sisters, Cheryl, Dianne and Denise, that preceded her in death along with her parents Jacob and Jaqueline. She is survived by her younger sister Trish. In 1974 Karen came to Colorado and fell in love with the mountains and the beauty that only this state can provide. Boulder County instantly became home. Here she blossomed a love with her surviving husband “T”, Thomas, with whom they worked hard and created a loving family clan of Jamie, Joy (Jayson), Tony, Lucas (Kristin), and Wyatt (Julia). Who blessed them with the most awesome wonderful gift of grandchildren; Isaac, Sophie, Liam, Harper, Ella, Charlotte, Colton, Aliyah, Ruggero, Otello, Luka, and Ari. She loved the title of Grandma and wore it with great pleasure and honor. Other important people who walked with the clan were nephews Danny, Mark, Tobias, niece Denise, plus Nathan, Jaron, Piper, Amanda, LaReina, Clinton, Lara, Kris, DJ, Brett and Kerry. Along with her friendships of old and new that spanned many years.
