Obituary of Karen Ann McCurdy

Please share a memory of Karen to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

Karen Ann McCurdy passed away peacefully in her home on February 21, 2023 in Dover, NJ at the age of 69. Karen was a loving mother, aunt, cousin, and friend to many.

Karen was born in Dover, NJ and was raised in Ledgewood. She completed Roxbury high school then moved on starting a family. While living in Roxbury she perfected her skill at waitressing. She always enjoyed talking to her customers and of course feeding them. Then after a hard day of work, she would come home to enjoy the pool. Her pool was a popular place for family in the summertime. Her parents George and Bertha would host holiday party’s every year, they were wonderful hosts. Karen always tried to keep up with their traditions in Ledgewood, until she moved about 10 years ago to Dover. There she became friendly with the neighbors; they would all gather around on her porch to share a cup of coffee. Karen loved the beach and always enjoyed trips down to the Jersey Shore. She enjoyed to snuggle up and watch a good crime drama with a nice cup of coffee and her two dogs Scout and Keykey. Karen was a true pet lover.

Karen’s memory will live on forever through her loving son John Christopher McCurdy. Her sweet cousins Shirley Beth Harrington, Meg Brill, Evie Scalera, and Dennis McNerney. Her nieces Jenna, Cassidy, Lori, and Sonia. Along with many other loving friends and family. Karen is predeceased by her loving daughter Krista McCurdy and her parents George and Bertha O`Dell.
