Karen Weyer Maiden, 55

| September 6, 2020 12:00 AM

Karen Weyer Maiden, 55, of Kalispell, went home to the Lord on Aug. 22, 2020, after a courageous battle with cancer.

Karen was born in St. Cloud, Minnesota, in 1965 to Raymond and Jean Weyer. She was the fourth child in the family, and graduated fourth in her class from Cathedral High School, and then earned her communication degree from the College of St. Catherine, again fourth in her class.

Karen met Lonnie Maiden on the West Glacier Golf Course. They married soon after on the shores of Lake McDonald. Happiness exuded from their life together. They enjoyed golfing, bowling, boating, fishing and hiking together.

She had an eye for capturing beautiful moments with her camera. This talent led to “Karen Weyer Photography,” her successful business of 20- plus years.

Everyone who knew Karen loved her vitality for life. She made friends easily, including lasting friendships through her photography business.

Karen always made a point to extend her fun-loving nature to her nieces and nephews whom she loved dearly. They will remember her fondly for her playful spirit and sense of adventure.

Karen was preceded in death by her grandparents, niece Grace, sister-in-law Lori, and friend Hector.

Karen is survived and will be deeply missed by her husband Lonnie, parents, and siblings Dan (Terri) Weyer, Mary (Jeff) Borns, Sue (Steve) Symanietz, Diane (Joe) Van Beck, and Sharon (Charles) Huntley, many nieces and nephews, dear friend “Mama Sharon,” and Bro Joe.

The memorial service will be held on Sept. 11 at 11 a.m. at Canvas Church, 255 Summit Ridge Drive, Kalispell.
