Karen Jo Anne Stetler
Age 62 died peacefully on September 30th, 2021 at her home in Oklahoma City. She was with her husband, mother and three of her siblings. Also there was her mother and father in-law along with nieces and nephews. She initially battled breast cancer and went into remission. Shortly after she was diagnosed with stage IV liver and colon cancer. After a long and courageous battle she lost the fight.
Karen was born on November 20th, 1958 in Guthrie, Oklahoma to JL and Shirley Dye of Crescent, Oklahoma. She graduated Crescent High School in 1977.
She is survived by her husband Larry Stetler, children Ryan James Stetler, Benjamin Jared Stetler, Krystle Caitlin Havenar, Zachary Alan Havenar, Isaiah Hawk Stetler and Sugah and Roxy her pit bull babies. Grandchildren Cyara Merkel, Caleb Merkel and Charisma Stetler. Her mother Shirley Dye, siblings Jerry and Barbara Dye, Jeannie and Donnie West, Danny and Robin Dye, JL Dye Jr and James Cobb, Dana Dye, Jimmy and Kathy Stetler along with countless nieces and nephews and other family.
I believe that Karen would describe her legacy as the children she loves with every fiber of her being. Karen was also committed to her work with the American Cancer Society and she wished in lieu of flowers that a donation would be made in her name to the American Cancer Society PO Box 22478 Oklahoma City, OK 73123
