To plant a memorial tree in honor of Karen Ann MacDonald (Pike), please visit our Heartfelt Sympathies Store.
She was born on September 19, 1959, to Leonard and JoAnn Pike in California. Karen was blessed with seven brothers.
Karen was married to Eugene MacDonald, and their three children: Chris, Billie Jo and Jamie. They lived happily in Billings, until he passed away in 1995. Jamie passed away at a young age; however, Chris and Billie Jo blessed her with eleven grandchildren and three adopted grandchildren from Wanda Oster and two great granddaughters. Karen later married Patsy Kline on February 14, 2015, but they lived happily together for a total of 20 years. Karen’s family were the light of her life and her favorite pastime, along with cooking and playing keno.
Karen was a light in darkness for many, always opening her heart and home to anyone in need. She was a hardworking, loving, loyal mom, wife, mother-in-law, grandmother, and friend to all that knew her.
Karen is survived by: her wife Patsy, son Chris, daughter Billie Jo, brothers: Mike, Frank, Jessie, Bob and John, grandchildren: Kendra, Kristabelle, Christian, Karmyn, Brady, Breonna, Logan, Garrett, Trinitee, Tamera, Shikira, Shyanne, Jacob and Pheebee, great granddaughters: Adya and Emily and numerous nephews.
She will be missed dearly, but is at peace in Heaven. Karen is preceded in death by her parents Leonard and JoAnn Pike, husband Eugene MacDonald, son Jamie MacDonald, and brother Billy Pike.
Special thanks to Riverstone Health and Hospice care for their great care and compassion in her final days.
A memorial service will be held for her at 3 pm on January 9, 2020 at Smith’s Funeral Chapel Downtown. 925 South 27th St, Billings, MT 59101. Reception to follow.
