Obituary

Karen Lund Page passed away on June 9th, 2020 at the age of 59 due to complications from a longstanding autoimmune disorder. Karen was born in Arcadia, California on December 13th, 1960 to Marilynn Marlett Lund and William Stirling Lund. She married James Brent Page in Manti, Utah in 1986 after five years of courtship, having bonded over their mutual love of river rafting.

Karen spent her life in the pursuit of learning. She received an undergraduate degree in economics from the University of Utah, a master’s degree in economics from Colorado University, a juris doctorate from Denver University, and finally a masters and PhD in organizational behavior from Stanford University. She taught business at the University of Wyoming for several years and truly enjoyed her many teaching callings in church.

As a young woman, Karen was unsure about having children. She would often joke that she wanted no kids and Jim wanted four, so they compromised by having five. Karen’s children became her greatest joy. She was an involved mother, leading scout troops, organizing arts and crafts, and bringing them on adventures around the country and the world. Karen had more than enough love to go around, and she curated an extended family of strays and misfits throughout her life.

When Karen was 49, she became ill with a debilitating illness that quickly stripped her of her hearing and her ability to walk, among other things. Nevertheless, Karen fought valiantly to stay with her children as long as she could, staving off infection and disease for ten heroic years. She remained joyful and loving to the end, and expressed joy and comfort that she would soon leave her ravaged body for the next and greatest adventure.

Karen was preceded in death by her mother, Marilynn, her father, William, her sister, Victoria, and her husband, James. She is survived by her children, Hannah (Devin) Bell, Esther, Richard, Rebekah, and Jennie, and one granddaughter, Cora Bell, her siblings, sister-in-law, and a collection of cousins, nieces, and nephews.

I am so sorry for your loss. Your mother produced some of the brightest, kindest, and fun kids I ever had the honor to teach. May God comfort you and give you strength during this most difficult time.

To Karen's kids, I know you don't remember me, but I loved your mother dearly. We met in 1983 in France. She was truly one of a kind!

We are sending prayers and love your way. We love all of you! Your mom was a delightful friend. I loved living across the street from her in Laramie and she was always fun to talk with. I loved listening to her teach at church. She was phenomenal. I'm grateful I could watch her funeral and see all of you. Nathan & Michelle Eliason

I also have a sweet memory of a 4th of July party at their house. Scooter had invited so many of her friends to come to the pool and barbecue. Karen was also happy to see Scooter's friends, happy that so many loved her.

It was such a beautiful sunny day and everybody in the pool was having such a good time.
