Danville – Karen Lynne Huffman, age 60, passed away at Select Specialty Hospital in Newark on November 1, 2023.
Karen was born in Mount Vernon on August 8, 1963. She was the daughter of the late John R. and Mary Maxine (Cunningham) Huffman.

Even though she was on dialysis for 30 years, she was able to work at John Alden Insurance, in sales at Victoria’s Secret, as well as other odd jobs to help her friends, go on several fun trips with family and friends, and live life to the fullest.
Besides her parents, she was preceded in death by her paternal grandparents, Harold and Evelyn Huffman, her maternal grandparents, John and Lena Cunningham, and her pups, Amy and Molly.
Karen is survived by her sisters, Malinda (John) Cook of Killbuck, and Laura Frink (Travis Jones) of Danville; brother, John (Charlene) Huffman of Tennessee; her special pup, Jade; all of her nephews and nieces who were very important to her, Patrick Cook, Jenna (Jo) Fox, Chaz (Stacey) Miller, Michael (Lauren) Jones, and Jonathan Jones, Allyson Rosemore, Nick (girlfriend Alison) Huffman, and Mason Huffman; three great nephews, several Aunts and Uncles, and her rock and her friend, Kelly Kassor and Aunt Sharon Reiheld.
