Obituary for Karen Jean Lamar

Memorial Services will be 4p.m. Sunday, November 26, 2017 at Williams Dingmann Family Funeral Home in Sauk Rapids for Karen J. Lamar, age 64, who passed away at St. Benedict’s Senior Community in St. Cloud on Monday. Services will be officiated by Dominic Dinger. Friends and family may gather one hour prior to services at the funeral home on Sunday.

Karen was born May 4, 1953 to Walter and Lavinia (Held) Burczyk in St. Cloud. She created a unique friendship with Jim Lamar; the couple was united in marriage on October 25, 1997. Karen was a head housekeeper at the Country Inn & Suites in East St. Cloud and recently retired due to health issues. She enjoyed crossword puzzles, video games, writing, and reading. Karen was adamant about traditions; on Good Friday she enjoyed gathering her family to watch Jesus Christ Super Star. She was stubborn, feisty, gracious, caring, selfless and all around “pretty cool.” Karen will be dearly missed by all who knew her.

She is survived by her husband James “Jim” Lamar of Sauk Rapids; children, Michelle (Jim) Young of St. Cloud, Jason (Danielle) Tomporowski of Sauk Rapids, Rick Petersen of Sauk Rapids, Kim Montour (Pete McDonald) of Becker; siblings, Peggy Arseneau of Sauk Rapids, Shirley (Bob) Brannan of St. Cloud, Sue Martin of Waite Park, Butch (Donna) Burczyk of Rice, Connie Burczyk of St. Cloud, Martin Burczyk of New Richland; 17 grandchildren and 2 great grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her parents; siblings, Ricky, Ronald, and Bernie Burczyk; and son-in-law, Mike Montour.

“May St. Christopher protect you.”
