November 10, 1947 ~ January 9, 2023


It is with great sadness that the family of Karen Brenenstuhl announce her passing after her second courageous battle with cancer. She leaves behind her loving husband of 54 years, Allan Brenenstuhl, her beautiful daughter Patty, her son Robert (Cyndi) as well as four grandchildren who adore her, Amy, Megan, Colleen and Jonathan. She is also survived by her sister Laurana and her brother Bob (Allicia) as well as numerous nieces and nephews, other family members and many friends. She was predeceased by her parents and her sister Laurie.

Karen was born to Lewis and Doris Homme and grew up and went to school in the Stony Plain area. In 1968 she graduated from the U of A Nursing School as an RN and spent most of her career working in labour and delivery at the Sturgeon Hospital in St. Albert. Karen was the matriarch that held us all together because nothing was as important to her as her family.


Her family would like to express their sincere thanks to the volunteers and staff at the Pilgrims Hospice in Edmonton for the loving care they showed Karen in her final days.


A memorial luncheon will be held in the spring of 2023. Cremation entrusted to Memories Funeral Home.


In lieu of flowers, please consider a memorial donation to the Pilgrims Hospice Society, 9808 148 Street Edmonton, AB T5N 3E8.
