Obituary

Karen Lynn (Glassey) Winebrenner, 62, beloved wife, mother, and grandmother died peacefully in her home Friday, October 11, 2019, surrounded by family members. She was born February 25, 1957 in Paulding, Ohio, and after graduating from Paulding High School, moved to Fort Wayne, Indiana. Working in the restaurant industry for decades, she met her husband Doug Winebrenner and later went on to co-manage the real estate company DUO Properties with him. Throughout life, she demonstrated a tireless work ethic, strength, ceaseless devotion to her family, and compassion for others. A lover of life, Karen enjoyed traveling, entertaining company, and crafting. An accomplished quilter, Karen created over 50 elaborate and artful quilts over the past 15 years, giving away each to family members and friends. Most of all, Karen loved her family and the joys of being a grandmother. She was a caregiver to many throughout her life, and in her final months received caregiving from her husband. Diagnosed with ALS for over six months, Karen navigated that challenging illness courageously and without complaint. Until the end she shone the light of Jesus to friends, family, and anyone who encountered her (Matthew 5:14-16). While 62 seems too young to many of us, Karen went bravely and with confidence into the arms of her Savior, Jesus Christ. Karen was survived by her husband, Doug; children, Dustin (JoHannah) and LaDonna; granddaughter, Matilda; and siblings, Linda, Robert, Stuart, Keith, Kenneth, Sherri, Peter, and half-sister Billie. She was preceded in death by her half-brother Joel.
Service is 3:00 pm, Wednesday, October 16, 2019 at Fairhaven Funeral Home and Cremation Services, 6557 N. Clinton St. with calling one hour prior. Calling also Tuesday, October 15, 2019 from 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm at the funeral home. Memorials may be made to Disabled American Veterans or St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
