In Loving Memory of Karen Joane Aue
March 4, 1949-October 8, 2020
Karen Joane Aue, 71, of Terre Haute (fondly referred to as Care Bear) climbed the stairway to heaven without any pain, while holding the hand of Jesus on Thursday October 8, 2020 at 5:00 p.m. She was surrounded in her home by her loved ones and grandchildren. Those who were not able to be physically present were with her in love and spirit. She was born March 4, 1949 in Terre Haute to William and Jean (Reader) Aue. Karen is survived by her brother, Kevin Aue (Louise); Nephew Nick Aue; Niece Lauren Aue; Nephew Jason Benefiel; Great Nephew Jaxon Benefiel; Nephew Cameron Aue; Great Niece Kenzie Aue; Grandchildren in heart are Brendan, Gavin and Makenna Lemmons, Kylie and Lucy DeLisle; and her beloved friend/sister Coni DeLisle Cown (Glen), and an abundance of cousins, dear friends and loved ones.
Karen was a member of New Hope Community Church where she served as President for the Christian Women's Connection and assisted with children's ministry. Karen had a passion for love of this country and was a lifetime member of many charitable organizations where she served as President, Chaplin and held other offices within the American Legion Women's Auxiliary, 8-40, American Veterans, and the American Eagles. She was extremely proud of her father and other family members who served in the military. Karen was a member of the Terre Haute Accounting Club with years of being an accountant for her father's family car dealerships in Illinois, and time spent managing Burger Chrysler in Terre Haute. She was part-owner of Coni & Karen's Karaoke, Mia Bella Salon & Heavenly Hair & Nails where everyone knew her as Ms. Karen. She retired as Administrative Assistant to the Dean in the Scott College of Business at Indiana State University where she had received a Staff Quality of Service Award. Karen also served on staff counsel and is well remembered for her performance in the mystery dinner theatre.
Karen was a avid Elvis fan and enjoyed traveling, camping, time at the lake and most of all spending time with her family. Karen will be mostly remembered for her generous spirit and captivating smile. She never met a stranger and was always first to lend a helping hand. To know her was to love her. Sincere heartfelt thanks to Southern Care Hospice of Terre Haute.
Celebration of Life will be an online event announced thru Facebook as she was a loyal facebook user making many new friends while keeping in touch with old ones on a daily basis.
Karen was a recipient to Meals on Wheels. Consider donating in her honor. She would be pleased!
