April 1, 1942-Aug. 29, 2019

Karen passed away on August 29, 2019.  She was born April 1, 1942, in Butte to Edward and Vivian Judd. 

Karen always loved spending time in Waterloo with her parents on their ranch. To Karen, it was the kind of place she wanted her three boys, Joseph, Jeffery and James, to grow up and in 1977 purchased Granny’s County Store in Silver Star, Montana. 

Karen owned the store and worked in the post office until selling the store in 2003. Karen was always very grateful of the communities’ support of her small business and enjoyed visiting with all that stopped by. 

Karen lived and worked in Butte until she retired in 2016.

Karen was preceded in death by her parents, Edward and Vivian Judd and her brother, Lawrence Judd.

Karen is survived by her two sisters, Bonnie (Barren) Brown and Lee (Bob) Black; sons, Joe (Marlys), Jeff (Becky) and Jim (Tawnya); grandchildren, whom she cherished spending time with, Lindsey (Bill), Courtney (Jimmy), Brandon, Derek, Shelby, Sami and Tony; and great grandchildren, Zandria, Paisley, Easton, Link and Piper.

Per Karen’s request no memorial services will be held.
