Karen A. Hupper
Union — Karen Ann Thomas Hupper, 53, died unexpectedly at her home, Friday, Aug. 22, 2014.
Born in Rockland, Feb. 20, 1961, she was the daughter of Howard and Beverly Parsons Thomas. Educated locally, Karen was a graduate of Rockland District High School.
Following high school Karen worked as a waitress and cook at several local restaurants, including the Wayfarer and Harpoon.
On March 14, 1987, she married Marshall Hupper in Port Clyde. Together they raised their family there until recently moving to Union.
Karen is remembered as an excellent cook, who embodied the word "home-cooking." She was a caregiver at heart, caring for her aging parents, as well as raising her children. She was always willing to help anyone in need, whether opening her home for a place to stay or her heart for wise advice. Family was her number one priority. She loved spending time with her grandson, and was overjoyed to learn of the expected arrival of her second grandchild. Her children and grandchildren were her greatest joy.
Karen’s passing leaves a huge hole in the hearts of all who knew and loved her.
Predeceased by her parents; a brother James Thomas, a step-brother, Arthur Thomas; a sister Janice Robinson; a step-sister Patricia Brown; and a nephew Shawn Pease; Karen is survived by her husband Marshall of Union; her son Whitney Hupper and his companion Chelsea Burnham and her daughter Kiley all of Port Clyde; her daughter Sierra Hupper and her son Treyven Johnson of Cushing; her sister Beverly Pease and her husband Shannon of Cushing; her brother Alan Thomas and his wife Nancy of Freedom; a special friend Patty Monroe of Union; as well as several nieces and nephews.
