Karan Waldock, 76 passed from earth to her heavenly Father’s arms May 10, 2022. She was doing what she loved, preparing her backyard for the summer season as she looked forward to countless gatherings with her family and friends.
Karan was born March 12, 1946, in Bakersfield, California during an earthquake…the earth was shaking when Karan was born. She was born to Fritz (Jack) and Bonita Adams. Karan’s dad worked in the oilfield, and they bounced from town to town until they finally ended up in Gillette, Wyoming where Karan graduated high school.
Karan continued her education at Casper College. It was during this time she met the love of her life, her forever companion and friend, Mike Waldock. On June 26th, 1965, Mike married Karan in Casper, Wyoming. They had two children, Stacy Murphy (J.D.) and Matthew Waldock (Chris). Mike and Karan were happily married for 54 years. Mike preceded her in death in October 2019.
Karan spent the majority of her married life as a homemaker raising Matt and Stacy. She loved every part of being their mom. They often arrived home from school with fresh baked cookies and a hot homemade meal. Dinner was spent around the table discussing the day's events.
Karan has three grandchildren Mariah, Christian and River; great grandson Remington and great granddaughter Delilah who was the light of her life. She adored them and they loved their Mimi. She would often be caught telling them she loved them more!
She loved and served the Lord all her days. Karan lived by the motto “Choose Joy”. Joy for life, family, and God. The word "joy" could be found everywhere in her home. She brought "joy" to all in her life.
We will miss her the rest of our days, until we meet again. Knowing she is with Mike and our heavenly Father brings us great comfort.
In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to P.E.O. that Karan was part of. It is a philanthropic educational organization whose mission is to educate women through loans, grants and scholarships.
