Karen Smith Brown was born on September 12, 1957 to the union of her parents Earl Smith and Ethel Mae Walker Smith and passed from this life to life anew on January 13, 2018 at the Christus St. Patricks Medical Center in Lake Charles following a brief illness. Karen was preceded in death by her parents and by five brothers Dalton Davidson, Wayne Smith, Gerald Smith, Jerry Smith and G.H. Smith. Karen was a member of Tullos First Baptist Church, and had recently retired from the LaSalle Parish School System where she was a cafeteria lady at LaSalle Junior High School. She was blessed with a wonderful family and her husband, grand kids and her siblings played a huge role in her life. Karen was a very nurturing person and was loved by all. She loved working in her yard, she loved her Route 44 diet Cokes from Sonic with vanilla and she loved to shop. Her legacy that she leaves behind is one of abundant love, faith and good will to her family and friends alike. To know Karen was to love her and she will be greatly missed.
