Jan 02, 2019

Karen Kay Phillips passed away Dec. 10, 2018, in Edmonds, Washington, after experiencing recent years of declining health.

She was born Dec. 21, 1953, in Seattle and was raised in Edmonds, where she attended primary school and graduated from Edmonds High School in 1972.  Karen expressed how she enjoyed her family upbringing within the Greek community, and appreciated the kindness and caring received from them.

She worked in the retail grocery, gasoline minimart and retail drugstore business, establishing many appreciative customers for over 40 years before she retired.

Karen fondly reminisced about her travel vacations she took to visit family and friends, and the good times they had together. Many people who were part of her life will always remember Karen for her favorite color being purple and her enjoyment of Elvis music.

Karen was a fan of the Seattle Mariners, and was especially proud of her son’s achievements with the organization.

She is preceded in death by her mother, Joanne F. Phillips; her godfather Al Stasinos; and survived by her father, William V. Phillips; her godmother Thelma Stasinos; son Cory (Danielle) Carbary; and four grandchildren, three siblings and their spouses, two nephews, many cousins and lifelong friends she considered as extended family.

As per Karen’s wishes, no services are planned. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to your favorite charity.
