Karen Elaine Conord, 62, of Christiansburg, Virginia passed away on Monday, April 13, 2020. Karen was born October 27, 1957. She was a graduate of Christiansburg High School, class of 1976.

Karen lived in Florida for many years serving as a Director of a Day Care Center in Daytona Beach. She loved her “children”. She loved to cook, bake, and was very creative always making crafts or knitting chemo caps to donate to the local cancer center. She was a member of the Belmont II Ruritan Club and worked at State Electric in Christiansburg.

Her nickname in our Ruritan Club started as Angel Girl. During one of the meetings, we talked about how they used to discipline kids in elementary school, and she had to stand inside a chalk circle on the blackboard. We quickly changed her name to chalk circle. But Monday she became Angel Girl again.

Karen is preceded in death by her loving husband, Herbert Conord, step-father Karl Mowry, and her special companion Ricochet. She is survived by her loving mother Joyce (Epperly) Mowry, father David Poff (Fredene), brothers Dennis (Beth), Rick (Juliann), Gary (Teresa), and many loving nieces, nephews and cousins.

Special thanks to the caregivers at Radford Health & Rehab Center and especially to the loving caretakers of Interpid Hospice for taking care of Karen even when we were not able to visit due to COVID-19 restrictions.

Due to current government restrictions no services will be held. A memorial service will be held at Faith Christian Church at a time to be determined. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to Intrepid Hospice, Radford, VA or Faith Christian Church, Christiansburg, VA.
