I remember Karen Anderson Peyman very fondly from our days at Milton Grade School.  I recall a fifth grade (sixth grade?) class trip to Springfield, IL, which included Karen.  May God bless her family and loved ones at this very difficult time.  With gratitude for her life, Ken Cook

I have such great memories of Karen from East Jr High, and from High School. She was such an amazingly nice person, and I loved our conversations. Sending prayers to her family and friends! Rest In Peace, Friend!

Karen & I had several classes together at East Junior.

She had beautiful, long natural hair & a winning smile.

Karen was a mother of 3 early on.

I always admired how she handled that responsibility

 at such a young age.

Peace be with you, Karen 🙏🏻
