Karen Elizabeth Bernhard, 71, a native of Victoria, passed away Tuesday, March 26th, 2019 after a courageous battle with colon cancer.

Karen was born March 7th, 1948 to the late Lawrence Marcel and Bernice Mae Schaefer Bernhard. After graduating high school, Karen went on to earn her Bachelor's degree at North Texas State University where she majored in English and minored in Music. Karen returned to Victoria and worked for a period of time in the family construction business. She also owned "Leslie Arthur Designs,” a vintage gift store here in Victoria. Karen was a gifted writer and did so most of her adult life. Christmas was Karen's favorite holiday, she loved hearing Christmas music all year round. Karen was preceded in death by her parents, L.

Mark my sincere sympathy to you and your family on the loss of Karen. I remember you and Karen as part of my childhood in Victoria, going to school and and Sunday School. I remember Karen primarily in her music talent. My prayers are with you as you think of Karen in future years and that there are many fond memories. Always

My condolences to the Bernhard family during this difficult time. In the Bible, Jehovah God gives us hope. Acts 24:15 says, “there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous.” Revelation 21:4 says, “and he will wipe out every tear from their eyes and death will be no more.” Very soon we will see the fulfillment of these promises here on Earth. We hope you find comfort in God’s promises.
