Obituary for Karen L. Craig

July 27, 1962 - July 24, 2021
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania | Age 58

Beloved Sister, Godmother, and Friend


Karen L. Craig, 58, of Philadelphia died at her home on July 24, 2021. She was born July 27, 1962 to the late Edward C. Craig and the late Margaret L. Craig (nee Henry). Karen is the beloved sister of Douglas Craig and his wife Dolores and Donna V. Hicks and her husband Glen; Godmother of Kelly Hicks and Joesette Hacker; beloved human companion of Nieco; she is also survived by a loving extended family and friends.

Karen was raised and educated in Philadelphia. As a lifelong animal lover, Karen never met a puppy (no matter the age of the dog) she didn't have time to stop and adore. She was an employee of the Government Services Administration for more than 35 years. In her free time, Karen not only travelled extensively but took a great deal of interest in immersing herself in the local cultures including museums and aquariums. Along the way, she became an avid SCUBA diver, a pursuit and passion that she shared with her sister Donna and brother Douglas. Karen was a member of the Neshaminy Chapter #374 Order of the Eastern Star for more than 25 years.

Relatives and friends are invited to Karen's Life Celebration from 9:00 A.M. and Funeral Service at 10:00 A.M. on Saturday, July 31, 2021 at the John F. Givnish Funeral Home, 10975 Academy Road, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 19154. Interment will follow at Oakland Cemetery.
