We didn’t know one another very long but you had an impact on me. You took an interest in me and asked me about my aspirations and and my career. I thought of you as a wonderful inspiration, mentor and friend. Although we were at different stages of life, I thought of you as a kindred spirit and I looked forward to getting to know you better and I am so very sorry that is now not possible. I only hope you know how much you have touched those in your life. Thank you for being such a wonderful person. My thoughts and prayers are with your family at this difficult time.

Keeley Hayward (colleague)

You will be truly missed and were such a pleasure to work with. I remember having a meeting online with you & you were in the sun enjoying the garden, so relaxed and radiant and totally set me at ease before we had a big meeting. Thoughts with your family x

Clare Wilby (Marley)

I was so sorry to hear the sad news that Karen passed away. I was lucky enough to work with her twice, at Knowsley Council & again at Liverpool Council when Karen was my line manager. Knowsley was my 1st housing job after uni & Karen had been a graduate trainee like myself – she was always so organised & professional & much more mature than the rest of us! I was always inspired by her and how she conducted herself. She was a great support as a manager.
I will always remember her fondly – her love of travel, bright clothes and her enthusiasm for the things she did.
Sending love to Paul & Mason & all of her family and friends x

Lyn Bowker

I only knew you for a very short period of time compared to other Riverside colleagues, Karen, but we got on so well and you always made me laugh. I am going to really really miss you and I will always be grateful that our paths crossed in life. XXXX

Ian Kelly

A wonderful lady who I had the pleasure to get to know when we worked on the Plus Dane / EPN contract.

She was a fabulous woman who always strived for the best and was a a joy to be in her company, always had a smile.

So sorry to hear of your parting, and my condolences to your family and friends.

Mike Hanmer

So lucky to have worked alongside you. A fantastic colleague and a good friend. We will never forget your laugh, your warmth, you ability to light up any room you walked into and you always had time for everyone. Truly missed xx

Cris McGuinness

The legacy you have left behind is immense. You spent an entire career caring for customers and supporting colleagues on their own journey. You are mourned by everyone who ever had the pleasure of meeting you.

I am so pleased our paths crossed again at Riverside – but I am especially grateful for those days in the early 2000’s sharing that tiny office in Speke. I remember the love and the support as we started out on our careers, but I mostly remember the laughter.

Never without a list and a plan !

Rest in peace lovely lady x

Chris O'Shea

An amazing person who I was privileged to have as a colleague. Can’t express how much you’ll be missed. Thoughts with Paul, Mason and Family x


WOW, what a woman, so wonderful, so gifted, so kind.
Our Lewis, our Boss Lady, our Assets Queen!
We began as colleagues, and I knew the moment I met you, you were special. Colleagues grew to mentor (you as always, the perfect lead), turning to best friend, you were like a sister, my partner in crime!!! I love you so much and miss you dearly, I will think of you fondly and remember everything you have taught and guided me to be. You were a true inspiration to everyone you met, you commanded a room as soon as you walked into it and you certainly got everyone’s respect with it.
Thinking of Mason and Paul, and how much you cherished them.
Be the angel you’ve always been K.

Karen will always have a special place in my heart, always caring and thinking about others. Her love for Paul and Mason, her family, friends work collegues and the church was a testament to the kind of person she was. An inspiring, beautiful woman inside and out, whom I will dearly miss in person but will always be in my thoughts. Love ya Mrs 😘

Michelle Wood

You are a truly lovely person Karen. You made me so welcome at Riverside and I was looking forward to getting to know you better. You will be missed by all. I am thinking of you and your family. Rest in peace xx

Joel Woodard

Karen made such an enormous impact on my life in a very short time. By giving me the chance to join her team, I went from an extremely low point – one of the lowest I’ve had – to where I am now: confident in my work, extremely happy in my role and feeling ‘at home’ within our AS&D family. And family is the right word, because that’s how Karen made us feel.

I cannot even begin to convey just how much you’ll be missed by every single one of us. Your exemplary competence, your positivity, your encouragement, and your confidence in all of us had such a galvanising effect and I know I’ll always stick to the following axiom:

“What would Karen do?”

If I can get the answer to that even half-right, I know I’ll be on the right path.

Thank you for everything.
