Obituary of Karen Smit (Pierunek)
In Loving Memory
Mrs. Karen Smit of Delhi passed away peacefully at her home surrounded by her family; after a brave 6 year battle with cancer on Sunday, March 22, 2020 in her 66th year. Karen worked as a letter carrier in Delhi for 25 years. She enjoyed her customers and the furry friends she met on her route. She loved her visits with family to Montreal, Parry Sound and the cottage in Turkey Point. Karen had so much fun on her back deck watching birds, squirrels and chipmunks, while visiting with her dear friends and family. Karen especially loved her tea time and long talks with her daughter (Jenny), granddaughter (Hazel) and sister (Lorraine). Karen was very proud of Hazel’s Baptism and it brought her so much joy to share this beautiful day with her loved ones. Former Karen Gail Pierunek. Beloved wife of John Smit of 42 years. Loving mother of Jennifer Smit (Jamie). Cherished grandmother of Hazel Leigh Anne. Dearest sister of Michael Pierunek (Nancy), Vivian Bryant (Wayne) and Loraine McDonald (Late Marty).
