Karen Ann McKeon



Sumter, SC ….Karen Ann McKeon, 70, left us on Monday October 8, 2018 at Palmetto Health Tuomey.

She was born on June 19th, 1948 in Port Jervis, NY. and was the oldest child of John Phillip and Doris A. Schumacher. She graduated from Delaware Valley High School and was a longtime employee of the National Bank of South Carolina.

Karen was most proud of being a military wife. She spent 30 years supporting her husband as they moved from place to place during his career. She also took joy in taking new wives and “the troops” under her wing and showing them the ropes.

She will be missed everyday by her husband of 51 years, Bob and her children Robert (Randee), of Myrtle Beach, SC, Patrick (Annie) of Hudson, FL, and Jennifer (Tommy) of Charlotte, NC. She will also be missed by her sweet canine companion, Molly. Karen loved being Grandma to her grandchildren Alex, Sigrid, Trinity, Ilend, Kai, Keira, Tristan, Nick, Kathryn, and Keelan. She also adored her granddogs. Karen also leaves behind her sisters, Kristina (Bob) Marlovits and Pam Meyer, brothers Thomas Schumacher and Remi Buttinghausen, as well as many nieces and nephews, who she loved as her own. She also has many cherished members of her extended family that she loved.

Live well, love much, laugh often.
