FIELD, Karen Leah (nee NORRIS) - December 4, 1948 - January 26, 2023
Karen Field passed away peacefully, at the Moir Family Centre on January 26, 2023, after a long fight with PSP and cancer at the age of 74.
Born in Toronto to John and Violet Norris, she grew up in Etobicoke. Karen met her husband, Frederick Theodore "Ted" Field, while skiing in Quebec.
They were married in Etobicoke and lived briefly in California, before returning to Toronto where they lived with their sons, Anthony, Michael and Nicholas.
Karen and Ted recently celebrated 50 years of marriage surrounded by family and friends.
Karen was a teacher, active member of the community, good friend and excellent cook, but her family was her passion.
She and Ted raised their children to be citizens of the world, instilling within them integrity, compassion and a love of knowledge. Karen loved dogs, Scrabble, Jeopardy, Star Trek, entertaining and creating a warm home. She will be greatly missed. Karen is survived by Ted; sons, Tony (Karin), Mike (Maya) and Nick (Evelyne); and five grandchildren, Vanessa, Quentin, Clarice (Tony and Karin) and Elliana, and Alice (Nick and Evelyne).
A Celebration of Life will be held at Turner & Porter Butler Chapel, 4933 Dundas St. W., on February 3, 2023. Visitation from 2-3 p.m. and service at 3 p.m., followed by a reception.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to PSP Research.
