Karen Meuser Obituary

   Karen Sue Meuser, 81 of Roberts, passed away on Sunday, February 4, 2024 at Accolade on Pells in Paxton. Visitation will be from 11-1pm on Friday, February 9, 2024 at Kruger Funeral Home, 10 E. Williams Street in Danville. Graveside Services will follow at 1:30pm at Gordon Cemetery on Denmark Road in Danville.

   Karen was born in Danville on January 5, 1943 to William and Mary (Kraft) Meers. She grew up in Tilton, raised by her parents Frank and Mary Peevler.  She attended Tilton and Lincoln Grade Schools, as well as Danville High School. Karen worked at numerous places throughout the years, trying her hand at many jobs. Her favorite and most rewarding job was when she worked as a Personal Aide at Liberty Estates. When she wasn’t working, Karen enjoyed watching basketball-especially the Illini and the Chicago Bulls, fishing and being outdoors, watching and feeding her birds, and just cruising in the car. She loved watching the squirrels, planting her flowers and tending to her mums, and enjoying the fall. Karen adored her kitty Lily, and was heartbroken when she passed away.

   Karen leaves behind her two daughters: Kathleen (Tim) Williams and Kristine Fuoss (Bradley Payton); her nine grandchildren: Ashley (John) Viner, John Wesley, Brittani Shurr, Carmen Shurr, Gabbi Shurr, Kolten Fuoss, Malocka Shurr, Corey Beth Shurr, and Cassie (Randy) Wegryzn; twenty-two great-grandchildren; and her sister: Pamela Jo Ponto. She was preceded in death by her parents, a brother: David, and two sisters: Reva and Judy.
