Karen Kramer, 66, of Pittsburgh, passed away surrounded by her family on the evening of September 19, 2018. Karen was born on July 1, 1952. She was the daughter of the late Donald Eugene Albaugh and Peggy (Hartweg) Dallenbach.
Karen was a graduate of Warren High School in 1970. She lived in Warren until 2008, when she made the brave choice to move to Pittsburgh to be closer to her daughters and live the big city life. She loved spending time with her family and friends and enjoyed reading, movies, shopping, theater, going out to eat, and vacationing at the beach. She was a smart, strong, funny, independent, and hard-working woman who was loved by so many. She had a zest for life and always lived life to the fullest, even up until the very end. She spent her last few weeks traveling to Ocean City, Lake Erie and Las Vegas to cross the last few things off of her bucket list.
Karen is survived by two children, Kari Kramer of Pittsburgh and Ashley Kramer of Pittsburgh; two sisters, Judy Schrader of Cherry Grove, PA and Barb Rockwell of Tiona, PA; and many nieces, nephews, and great nieces and nephews.
In addition to her parents, Karen was preceded in death by her late husband Dennis Kramer and her infant brother Donald Lewis Albaugh.
