Obituary for Karen Allen (Lansing)

Karen Veronica Allen was born August 22,1974 in Lansing, Michigan to Oral Brandon & Mandie Brandon. On February 28, 2018, at the age of 43 years, she answered God’s call and transitioned from this side of eternity.

Karen was known as the nice one in her family. With a heart pure as gold, she never met a stranger because all who met her loved her and instantly became family to her. She was a true testament to how we are to love one another as Christ first loved us. She was always providing a listening ear, a warm meal, a hairdo, or even a place to sleep to those in need.

Karen rededicated her life to Christ, and joined the Jesus of Nazareth Church of God In Christ prior to her passing.

As well as a host of nieces, nephews, other relatives and many friends who were dear to her heart.
