Karren, Mum, Gram, Teirney, this place won’t be the same without you. I know you’re involved in some kind of shenanigans right now, playing the spoons or the tuba, maybe cooking up a gourmet meal for your mum & dads, you’re definitely wearing something fancy, hand on your hip, sautéing with the other, laughing at your own jokes. I can hear the music of your soul. Maybe now, finally now, the poet inside you is flowing You were always there, in ways I can’t even begin to describe. When you took your last breath, a piece of me went with you. Thank you for being my hero. Karren (Meuse) Williams, 76, passed away in Beverly Hospital on October 28, 2019. Born in Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada, she was the daughter of the late Fred H. Williams and Pauline (Hazlett) (Williams) Staples. Karren moved to the Unites States nearly sixty years ago. She attended the former Essex Agricultural Culinary School. Karren had been employed as a chef for the Ipswich Bay Yacht Club and most recently the Ipswich Inn. Karren had a wonderful, sarcastic sense of humor and an adventurous spirit. She was a certified scuba diver and tuba player in a German band but her true joys were trips home to Canada, cooking extravagant weekly dinners for friends & family and a good manhattan. She is survived by her daughter, Jennifer Meuse and grandson, the sunshine of her life, Harrison Carroll both of Danvers, her siblings, James (and Marie) Williams of Nova Scotia, Clythie (and Darrell) Staples and Jayne (and Roger) McGeehan both of New Brunswick and Marion Sklar of UK, nieces & nephews Janice, Steve, Rick, Paula, David and many great nieces & nephews. A Celebration of Karren’s life will be held at 11:30AM on Saturday, November 2, 2019 at the 1640 Hart House, 51 Linebrook Rd, Ipswich. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to “Parents for Music Excellence, Inc.” PO Box 2145, Danvers, MA 01923.
