Karen Kay Miene, 75, of Monona, passed away unexpectedly on Saturday, July 2, 2022, at Crossing Rivers Hospital in Prairie du Chien, Wis. Karen was born March 21, 1947, to Harland and Shirley (Moon) Kutzbach in Farmersburg. She was baptized, confirmed and married, all at St. John Lutheran Church in Farmersburg.

On Sept. 25, 1965, Karen was united in marriage with Wayne Miene. Three sons were born to this union. Throughout the years, Karen was a daycare provider, and worked at the Isle of Capri and the hospitals in Prairie and Waukon. She enjoyed preparing for all the holidays for her family, especially baking Christmas cookies and decorating her home. She and Wayne enjoyed short trips together before his passing. They attended all of their grandchildren’s extra curricular activities when they could, something Karen continued as recently as two days before her passing, meeting her new great-granddaughter and seeing her great-grandson play baseball on the trip. Karen and her sister Kathy spent a lot of time together helping one another with many errands. She also enjoyed keeping up her yard and flowers. She will be dearly missed by her family and friends.
