Karen Jenkins, 65, passed away Oct. 13, 2008, in Texas. Karen was born on May 9, 1943. She was a longtime resident of Fort Collins.


Custodian with Housing & Dining Services for 21 years

Karen was employed as a custodian and a custodial supervisor at Colorado State University from 1984 until her retirement in 2005.  She thoroughly enjoyed working with the college students in Edwards and Ingersoll Hall for more than 10 years.  

Karen loved the mountains, hunting, and bingo.  One of her passions was clowning.  Her clown name was T-Bo and she brought joy to many people, especially children.

Survivors include her husband, Don of McGregor, Texas; a son, Don Jr., of Fort Collins; and two grandchildren.

A memorial service will be held in Texas.  A second service will be planned in Fort Collins at a later date.  Condolences may be sent to the family at 401 S. Washington; McGregor, TX 76657.
