In Loving Memory of

Karen 2

Karen Akinosho

My beautiful sister, Karen, passed away on Saturday 14 November 2020.  She was 51 years old.  She was the youngest of three sisters; Beverly, Donna (me) and then Karen.

Before becoming ill with Scleroderma, Karen was vibrant and very happy with her life.  She met and married the love of her life, Yomi, and had their beautiful daughter, Jasmine, in 2006.

In her younger days, Karen loved to rave, and there were a couple of times we had our poor mum worried when we got home in the late hours on a Sunday morning after leaving for a party on a Saturday night! 🙂 

Karen had a lot of friends and was loved by many.  She will be sorely missed and never forgotten.

Rest in peace baby sister xx
