View Full Version : Karen

I am very sad to say that Karen has died this week. Many of you will remember Karen as she was a longstanding member of NMP since July 2004.

Karen fought a long term battle with anorexia and depression but always continued to help and support people on NMP and I had the pleasure of meeting her many times at various meetups and conferences.

She was a very kind and caring person and will be sadly missed by us all.

There is a Facebook page in her memory if you would like to contribute or you can post any messages here, of course


I am sorry to post such sad news but I know that a lot of people on NMP wanted to pay their respects to Karen as well

Going home

Damn, her demons won in the end. :weep:

After all the suffering I pray that she is now finally at peace, also needs to be acknowledged how many members of this site tried to help her through her difficult times.

Very sad news Nic

I've always missed Karen since she decided to leave. Although she had many problems herself and struggled greatly, she always had a kind word for anyone in need. I just hope she can find the peace that she never found in life.

RIP Karen xxx :hugs:

This is awful, I was just wondering about her yesterday.

She was a great support to me back in the early days even though she had many troubles of her own.

At least she is now free from the probems that plagued her life.

My thoughts are with her family.

Goodnight Karen, be happy.

I have known Karen since joining nmp a few years ago and chatted alot with her and had a few long conversations, she also helped me over a few issues i had, we also talk on facebook.

I was very saddened to hear of her death, even though she was a very troubled soul, i hoped one day she would find some happiness, its a shame she could never see what a beautiful and caring person she was, R.I.P Karen hun xx

Oh my gosh!
This is so sad. Poor, poor Karen.

12-05-10, 00:38
This really is very sad news. I didn't know Karen in person but I spoke to her many times on NMP. She was a lovely person who will be sadly missed by those who knew her.

I shall be thinking of her family and all those who knew her.

R.I.P. Karen xxx :flowers:

14-05-10, 18:33
I am pleased to have 'known' Karen on here and on Facebook. Many a time she had a kind and encouraging word to say to me, even though she was struggling herself. She was sensitive and intelligent....also a mean scrabble player and I really enjoyed the challenge in our games......I didn't win very often!
Of course, as we know, she was a troubled soul too. I am sure she is at peace now, finding the happiness in the afterlife that eluded her in life.

God Bless


14-05-10, 21:46
Will there be a collection for karen? I think I read somewhere about donations to NMP??? or was I imagining it?
I would be happy to donate.

14-05-10, 22:43
Hi Poppy

This was posted on Facebook by her brother......

I just wanted to confirm Karen's wish for donations to Nomorepanic rather than flowers. Donations can be made direct or through Mummery's in Bexhill who are organising the funeral and who will collect and forward on. My thanks again to everyone who has left such kind and loving messages. Iain.

RIP Karen, i hope you are in a better place and feeling happier

18-05-10, 22:01
Hi Nic

29-05-10, 03:01
I'm sorry but I've only just read this too. I'm deeply saddened to hear this news because although I never met Karen, I often read and replied to her posts. Somehow it feels you can get to know someone just through their written words and sometimes what they say touches you in such a way that to hear of their loss feels all the more tragic. She was a lovely woman who suffered so much. She is very sadly missed. xxx

29-05-10, 10:51
I have only just seen this post also. Karen was often on here when I first joined. I'm so sorry to hear the sad news and offer my sympathies to all Karen's family and friends.
Rest in Peace Karen.


19-06-10, 13:07
Our paths crossed only briefly, but you toutched my heart in soo many different ways.


My heart goes out to Karens family and friends

LOVE karen, (aka jill )

23-06-10, 21:42
I haven't logged on here for ages but I was thinking of Karen last night.

I am so saddened to hear this news but I am glad Karen is no longer in the torment she struggled and suffered.

Oh she was a handful. A delight, a pain - she was so very complex. It was just so horrible to watch her destroy her life. She was just sooooo stubborn. And that probably kept her fighting on for so very long with such poor health.

RIP in peace "Karen". hope you get to meet your hero, and I am very sure your body and soul will be so much happier now. Take care up in heaven, rest and relax. Thanks for being here on NMP when I was struggling. I know we had a few 'words' from time to time but there were times of mutual support too. I bet you are shining now...

25-06-10, 11:47
I was really shocked at this sad new's about Karen.
I hope you are at peace now.xxxxxx

25-06-10, 12:42
I still think of Karen every day, i just feel its such a shame that she really couldnt have been helped, i just hope she is at peace now. xxx

20-10-10, 22:15
Not been on here for a while. Just thought I'd check in! Shocked by this. Poor Karen. She just needed proffesional help that either wasnt given or didnt help her. Poor thing. I'm so sorry for for her and her family and friends. She was always kind to me. I know she had issues but she tried her best to help others at the same time which is something special.

Rest in peace Karen xxxx
