Karen L. Gresh


Karen L. Gresh “Thumper”, 68 of Temple, PA passed away June 8, in the Reading Hospital.

Karen was the daughter of Clarence H. and Anna M. (Brown) Gresh, Reading, PA.

She is survived by Larry K. (Janet) Gresh, Birdsboro, and Kathryn A (Dennis A.) Frederick, Shillington.

She worked many years at Vanity Fair Corp. and Yorgey’s Cleaners after graduating from Governor
Mifflin High School class of 1971.

Her greatest love was her four legged fur babies she had throughout most of her adult years. A huge fan of the Philadelphia Phillies, she would root for them even when they weren’t playing well.  Another passion was watching trivia and game shows in hopes of seeing how “smert” she was. She
loved Country Music from back in the day of Conway Twitty and Loretta Lynn.  Karen was a good person with a warm heart and could easily be taken advantage of.  She was quick witted with a quirky sense of humor and was sure to send you a zap if you disagreed with her.
"I’ll yak with you later."

Funeral Service will be private.
