Posted in Spring Valley Obituaries

Karen Sample, age 74, of Spring Valley died Thursday November 27, 2014 at the Ostrander Care and Rehab. She had been battling Multi System Atrophy for the past two years.

Karen Sue Root was born October 10, 1940 to Clare Root and Vivian (Simonson) Root in Hamilton, Minn. She grew up on a farm near Spring Valley and attended school in Stewartville and later Spring Valley where she was a member of the cheerleading squad and where she met her future husband, Gregg Sample. Karen and Gregg were married February 15, 1958 and have been loving soul mates ever since. Together they lived in Spring Valley and St Paul. In 1964 they moved to Massachusetts and later moved back to Spring Valley, where they farmed for many years. In 1985 they moved to Arlington, Minn. and then to Pella, Iowa in 1994, returning to Spring Valley in 1998.

Karen worked as a nursing assistant and later received her LPN degree. She loved being a nurse and caring for people at work and away from work. She always put others first. Karen worked for the Spring Valley Nursing Home and Hospital, St. Mary’s Hospital in the Cardiac ICU and for the Arlington Hospital.

Family was her greatest joy. She loved to spend time with her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. (There were always cookies at grandmas!) She loved to garden and had many different flower gardens, she was always outside. Karen also enjoyed being in the woods at her parents farm or sitting in the sun reading. Family reunions were a great place to hear her sing with her siblings. She truly loved to have fun and laugh. Karen also enjoyed the opportunity to go on several trips with her siblings.

She is survived by her husband, Gregg of Spring Valley; her children, Mark Sample of LeSeuer, Minn., Brenda (Bill) Carman of Grand Meadow, Linda (Ronald) Boland of Cherry Grove, Minn. and Sandy (Bob) Burke of St Charles, Minn., 11 granddaughters, two step granddaughters, five grandsons, five great-granddaughters, and six great-grandsons; siblings: Jan Owen of Albuquerque, NM, Marian (Gary) Kuehntopp of Spring Hill, Fla., Barbara Regier of Peoria, Ill. and Mike (Raylene) Root of Patrich, S.C.

She was preceded in death by her parents and a grandson, Mathew Boland.

The family will be having a private celebration of life at a later date and will be having another celebration of life in the summer.
