Karen is a mother, mother-in-law, and grandmother. She and her husband returned to Texas after working in education. Her devotion to the Holy Rosary and Mary is shared with others in the booklet she wrote, Sharing the Holy Rosary: A Guide for Christians. She says, “Mother Mary is Jesus’ first disciple and the Holy Rosary helps us unfold that mystery.”
She began volunteering with Pilgrim Center of Hope in 2014 through the Evenings with Mary ministry. Karen and her husband Deacon Marty Robertson live and work in the Texas Hill Country and are parishioners at St. Francis Xavier in Stonewall, Texas.
