Karen M. Whitney-Deleon was called home by the Lord on Wednesday morning Aug. 22, 2018, during her two-month illness at Sacred Heart Hospital in Spokane, Wash. Karen was 55 years old. She leaves behind her loving husband of 10 years Benny Deleon, her mother Violet Whitney, her brother Ed and her cousin Dixie Flores (aka Sis) who helped care for her several months prior to her death.

She attended Big Bend Community College (BBCC) where received an AA degree in Early Childhood Education and then taught at Head Start for 15 years.

Her rescue dog Honey Bun will surely miss her too.
