I'm so sorry to hear of Karen's passing. I knew Karen in highschool in Wayland. She was one of the most cheerful and bright members of our class. Though we lost touch, I thought of her often over the years, recalling her intelligence, thoughtfulness, sparkling brown eyes and smile, high energy and vivacity, and genuine warmth. I will miss her and express my sincere condolences to her husband, kids, and family and friends at her passing.

I worked with Karen back in the old high school in Hopkinton; when it was shared with the middle school. I am surprised and saddened to her of her passing. She ALWAYS had a smile to offer, I can still recall the sound of her laughter.

Dear Franks Family, It was with a great sense of loss when I heard of Karen’s death. I wanted to let you know that my heart is truly saddened. The battle with breast cancer is very difficult to endure but Karen did it with grace and hope. Karen was more than just a wonderful person; she was always kind and considerate and I always welcomed seeing her at every opportunity. My sincere thoughts and prayers are with you during this time.

I am Joanne Mitchell's neice and Karen was always kind to me, she invited me to her infamous holiday parties. She was a wonderful and kind hearted person... cancer has indeed taken an amazing woman from us but now she is in a place where she cant feel pain.. Good bye Karen! My heart is with her family and friends...

It's so difficult to write when there are tears falling down my cheeks as I type. I was so surprised last year when I attended an event at Faith and both Steve and Karen came up and greeted me. I'd not seen them in perhaps 20 years, but that moment has come back to me again and again and I am always grateful for that 5 minutes in time after such a long time. I had no idea your dear Mom and wife had been battling cancer all these years, the obit tonight on FB was the first I'd heard. My heart is broken, but I am so honored to have known this incredible woman of faith. I am grateful we will be able to catch up in eternity, I had hoped we would grab coffee on this side. Blessings woman of God, what a phenomenal legacy you have left behind.

My prayers are for the repose of Karen, and comfort for her family, in their time of need. Karen was loved and will be missed, by all who knew her.

To Stephen and to the family of Karen Franks, My deepest sympathy to you all for your heartbreaking loss. I was praying for a miracle but now the miracle is that she is with Marguerite, Murlene, Ruth, and Dean. She will be missed greatly. I am so thankful for our times together - the happy and good ol' olden days and even sharing tears over the passing of my mom and dad. She was a very proud woman who shared her time and talents with so many. Her family was the most important thing to her and I know she loved all of you very much. Blessings to you all and I am hoping to hug each and everyone of you soon.
