    I’m very sorry to hear of her passing. She was a great actress. She’ll sadly missed by all who were able to see her performances. Somewhere up there she’s still acting. She’ll always be an actress in my heart.

    Very sad news. Karen was an outstanding actress and she shined in everything she did during her extensive film career. We will miss you very much, my friend.

    I donated to her GoFundMe charity recently and now have heard the news from sources of her passing. May we all have regard for her life and legacy. especially of course her role as Mother Firefly in House of 1000 Corpses as well as other works such as Trilogy of Terror, which was just as interesting to watch.

      Mama Firefly I mean; sorry, I have been overwhelmed with other things that have been going on let alone this year such as the passing of legendary wrestling manager, Paul Bearer, who managed The Undertaker and a few others.
