Karen Sue Seigars, 55, of Richmond, Maine passed away the morning of Saturday, August 20, 2016 after a brave fight with cancer surrounded by her loved ones.
Born Karen Sue Hook in Dallas, Texas on January 16, 1961 to the late Leonard B. Hook and Geraldine Hook of Bath, Karen graduated from Morse High School in Bath in 1979. In 2015 she earned her degree in Business Administration from Southern New Hampshire College.
Karen worked as a barber at BNAS Exchange for 14 years before opening River View Barber Shop in Richmond, Maine. The “town” barber was never at a loss for words or a good joke to all of her customers with a smile on her face.
Karen leaves behind two sons, Mathew G. Seigars of Bath, who served 5 years in the U.S. Marines and served two tours in Iraq and one in Afghanistan and his wife Caitlin Seigars along with Boo Boo’s granddaughters Maddy and Caralyn who brought her pure joy and Randy M. Moody who will begin his senior year at Maine Maritime Academy studying Mechanical Engineering. She was extremely proud of her two sons. Her brothers Kevin Hook of Bath, Kelly Hook of Richmond, Virginia, Jeff and his wife Lisa from Yarmouth, Maine, Keith Hook and his wife Cathy from Oswego, New York, Jon Hook and his wife Midori from San Diego, California and her sister Cindy Hook and husband Edwin Lebron of Falls Church, Virginia, numerous nieces and nephews and the Town of Richmond.
Karen was fast with a joke and quicker with a smile; her laugh was infectious to all. “Karly” loved entertaining on her porch surrounded by friends and delicious food that she prepared. She will be missed beyond words.
Memorial visitation will take place on Wednesday, August 24th from 4 to5pm with a funeral service to commence at 5pm at Kincer Funeral home 130 Pleasant St, Richmond. Followed by a celebration of Karen’s colorful life at the Old Goat in Richmond.
In Lieu of flowers, please send donations to CHANS Hospice at 60 Baribeau Dr., Brunswick, Maine 04011. They are an incredibly caring organization and Karen would be proud.
