BELL, Karen Marie - (1957 - 2021) - It is with deep sorrow and much love that we mourn the passing of Karen on January 31, 2021.

Karen passed peacefully at home with loved ones by her side.

She will be lovingly remembered by her husband of 41 years, David; children Robert (Jennifer), Jennifer (Matthew), Jason (Jenna) and Kristin; grandchildren Ava, Jack, Sloane and Jace; parents Otto and Gladys Lansche; sister Janet (Alan) Bottomley; mother-in-law Vicki Bell; brother-in-law Stephen Bell (Terrylee Smith), as well as numerous relatives and friends both here and overseas.

Karen has gone home now, guided by her faith and by the light of those she has loved and lost. She is leaving those of us who grieve her passing with the memories she gave, the good she spread, and the laughter she shared. 

Karen has dedicated her life to helping others, from her time as a Registered Nurse at St. Michael's Hospital and Winbourne Long Term Care facility to her involvement and service with the Pickering Village United Church, which included her participation in the choir, foot care clinic and numerous committees. 

Her dedication to her family had no limits.

Because of COVID-19 attendance restrictions, Mrs. Bell’s live-streamed funeral will be held in the chapel of McEachnie Funeral Home in Ajax, Ontario on Thursday February 4, 2021 at 3:00 p.m. A celebration of life will be held at a later date.

Memorial donations can be made to the Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada.

A nurse is God's angel of mercy.
