Karen Ann Hancock passed away in her home during the early hours of January 1st, 2022 due to natural causes. She was surrounded by her beloved husband and daughter.
Karen was born on April 29th, 1963 in Payson, Utah to Mary and Lawrence Haus (Anaconda/MillCreek). She attended school at Beaverdam and graduated high school in Elko, Nevada which is where she and her husband Dana would eventually run off to be married on July 9th, 1983. Her favorite story was how she was introduced to Dana by her best friend, and Dana’s brother, Donald. Karen and Dana welcomed their first child, Michael Seth Hancock into the world in 1985. Their daughter Honey Ann Hancock followed in 1990. Her children were the light of her life.
Karen was the most kind hearted mother, sister, daughter, grandmother and friend. She never turned anyone away if they needed help. Many would refer to her as the neighborhood mom as her arms and kindness were welcomed to all. She loved helping others so much that she dedicated her life to being a CNA for Anaconda’s elderly for many, many years. When Karen wasn’t helping others she would spend her time camping, fishing, hunting, horses, snowmen and anything that involved an adventure. Especially when her grandchildren were included.
Karen has been greeted in the afterlife by her mother, Mary Haus, Father, Lawrence Haus, and Brother, Thomas Haus. She is survived by her husband, Dana Hancock (Anaconda), Sister, Irene Stark & her husband (Kenny) (Kanasa), Son, Michael Hancock (Breeze), their son Ryder, Daughter, Honey Casey (Anaconda), her three children Alaina, Serenity and Raymond and many aunts, uncles, cousins and countless friends. Although not with us, Karen’s beautiful spirit will be held in all our hearts forever. Memorial Services will be announced at a later date.
