de GRAAF, Karen Elizabeth - went peacefully to be with Jesus on June 12, 2019. She was predeceased by her beloved father Fred (2007). Karen will be lovingly remembered by her mom Margaret de Graaf, brother David and spouse Lisa Lynn, sister Lisa, brother Mark and spouse Holly and brother Stephen and spouse Paula. Karen will be sadly missed by her nephews Carver and Ryder as well as the extended family and numerous friends she made throughout her life. Karen was a constant ray of sunshine for all she met. She never let her physical restrictions interfere with her ability to give a kind word, big smile and lend a listening ear to whomever needed it. Our time with her was a blessing and she will be deeply missed by all. Family and friends will be received at Dennis Toll Funeral Home, 55 Charing Cross Street, Brantford, on Sunday, June 16th from 3-5pm and 7-9pm. Visitation will continue at Central Baptist Church, 300 Fairview Drive, Brantford on Monday, June 17th from 10-11am, immediately followed by a funeral service. Donations in Karen's memory may be made to Central Baptist Church.

Dear Margaret,
I will miss seeing her greeting me with a big smile at band. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
Take gentle care of yourself!

Dear Margaret and the DeGraaf family, We were saddened to hear of the passing of dear Karen. She was consistently encouraging and hopeful over these many years. Karen lived above her circumstances, asking how she could pray for us and asking what she could do for us. She was a bright light of spiritual authenticity. May you be comforted in these days by the love of God's people. Karen was a huge blessing to us and to so many others. Her struggles are now over, she is forever with the Lord. May the visits and funeral in the next few days give glory to God. We will remember you in prayer. David Schmidt.

I remember Karen laughing at me for my silly height fears as she wheeled around the glass floor while I stood petrified. She was fun, a joy to be around, with a warm heart. She brightened our lives. My deepest sympathies to my Aunt Margaret and cousins.
