Karen J. (Malchow) Miller
August 7, 1943 ~ November 18, 2023 (age 80) 80 Years Old
Karen was born in Neenah, Wisconsin on August 7, 1943 to the late Milton “Mickey” and Eleanor (Matowitz) Malchow. She passed out of this world to join her beloved husband Jim on November 18, 2023 after a three year battle with dementia. Karen grew up on the island in Menasha and attended Menasha High School where she made many lifelong friends, and met the love of her life, Jim Miller. Karen and Jim were married on September 2, 1960 and enjoyed 55 years of marriage. She worked at Village Inn Pizza in Menasha and later at Winnebago Color Press in Menasha.
She loved spending time with her family and friends. Karen was an avid reader, sometimes reading three or more books a week. Karen also enjoyed playing Sheepshead, Cribbage, and Poker. She loved her house on the Fox River where she would pass the time feeding the squirrels and bird watching.
Karen is survived by her son Todd (Jane), son Tim and her daughter, Holly (Mike) Kryszak, grandchildren; Mandy (Culin) Holen, Noah (Alairyse) Miller, Bryant Miller, Seth (Diann) Miller, Jordan Kryszak and Taylor Kryszak. She is further survived by her great grandchildren; Waylon Miller, Katie Miller, Layla Miller, Mila Miller and Delaney Jane Miller, her brothers Wayne and Glen Malchow as well as numerous nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
In accordance with Karen’s wishes, there will be no funeral or visitation. Interment will be at Highland Memorial Park at which time she will be laid to rest next to Jim.
The family would like to thank the nurses and staff at Eagle Court Memory Care, the nurses and social workers at ThedaCare Home Hospice, and the nurses and staff at Bluestone Physician Services.
