Karen worked in the legal field for most of her life, and was a devoted wife and mother, as well as a lifelong member of The Order of Eastern Star. She was known as “Mom Nolan” by many in one of her most passionate endeavors, working with DeMolay. Her favorite role remained that of a wonderfully loving, generous and kind mother and grandmother.
Karen is survived by her husband of over 50 years, Gene Nolan of Show Low, Arizona, her beloved son Todd Nolan and daughter-in-law Cari McConeghy Nolan, of Gilbert, Arizona, and her seven beautiful grandchildren; Taylor, Baylie, Conner, Tyler, Payton, Hayden, and Jackson. Karen is also survived by her brother Kenneth Sweazy (Sandy) of Houston, Texas and her nieces Hollie Sweazy Wade and Niki Sweazy Hecker.

Karen loved flowers and any arrangements may be sent directly to the funeral home. A celebration luncheon will be provided after the service for anyone who wishes to stay and visit with Karen’s family and friends.
