Karen Anne Martin, age 39 of Pittsburgh, PA formerly of North Carolina went to be with the Lord on Saturday, April 6, 2019. Born on January 18, 1980, she was the daughter of Paul and Denise Martin. Loving sister to Justin (Nikki) Martin and Kimberly (Tom) Bridge. Dear aunt to 4 nieces and 3 nephews. She is also survived by her maternal grandmother Lorraine Meglio and aunts, uncles, and cousins. Karen was preceded in death by her maternal grandfather Emil Meglio, and paternal grandparents Hunter and Frances Reinburg.

Karen had a passion for Star Trek and enjoyed playing her instruments, singing, reading, and creating art. She was also dedicated to her faith and will be dearly missed by all. A special note of love to her best friend.

Even through death, Karen continued to take care of others through donating her body to further scientific research. Therefore, in lieu of flowers, the family asks that memorial contributions be made in Karen’s name to St. Jude’s Cancer Research.

Please view and sign the family’s online guestbook atwww.pittsburghcremation.com.

Karen, my thoughts and prayers are for your family now. You once told me about your long hair before the cancer. I hope you've got that long beautiful hair back in heaven.

Denise and Paul, Our thoughts have been with you over the weekend, as well as the few months leading up to Karen’s departure. Spring always reminds me of the resurrection and God’s promise to all who believe in Him and have faith, will receive Eternal life and be resurrected. Karen was strong and will receive God’s Promise. As above, so below. On Earth as it is in Heaven. God Bless you, Denise, and Paul, and your family with comfort and hope in Eternal life and being reunited with Karen again. Love is forever . 💜

So sorry, Denise, for all the suffering your daughter suffered. Losing a child is every mother’s nightmare as they are all so special to us. Love to you.
