Death of Karen Sue Frey

Published

Karen Sue Frey, 82 of Staunton, passed away at 11:15 PM on Monday, June 10, 2024, at St. John’s Hospital in Springfield. She was born on January 22, 1942, in Litchfield, the daughter of the late Nelson and Dorothy (Vogelsang) Goehe.  She married Charles B. “Chuck” Frey on October 22, 1960, in Staunton and he passed away on October 10, 1993.

She was employed as a Vice President at First National Bank in Staunton for several years.  She previously worked as a loan officer at First Community State Bank in Staunton and as a bookkeeper at S&L Motor Parts in Staunton. She was a member of St. Michael Catholic Church of Staunton, Staunton Country Club, and the Staunton Chamber of Commerce.

Karen was one of a kind. Her charming view of life and caring spirit blessed her with a loyal family and devoted friends whom she loved dearly. She was steadfast to check in with those she loved and was always a phone call away to whoever needed an ear to listen. 

She filled her life with so much joy that radiated to those around her. From dancing in her early years, to golfing at the country club, and to playing slot machines at the casino boat, she had a magical way of making everyone around her smile. She had a passion for golfing and excelled at the sport for as long as she could – she had a chip shot that one could only describe as “wicked”. 

Karen never missed watching a St. Louis Cardinals game, an Illini basketball game, or the chance to drink a margarita. She especially never missed any opportunity to go to Disney with her beloved family. The memories of those trips are what got her through so much of her life and gave her the nostalgic connection to all the family that she had lost. Karen will be missed very deeply by all those who were blessed to have known her. May her glowing smile, sassy attitude, & dazzling blue eyes remain in our memories forever.

She is survived by one daughter, Kimberley Knoche of Bloomington; three grandchildren, Taylor Knoche of New York, NY, Kaelyn (Oracio) Molina of Gainesville, FL, and Camryn Knoche of Bloomington; and many nieces and nephews also survive. 

Besides her husband and parents, she was preceded in death by one daughter, Melissa “Missy” Frey; one sister, Linda Dal Pozzo; and one son-in-law, Don Knoche.

Friends may call from 5 to 8 PM on Monday, June 17, 2024, at Williamson Funeral Home in Staunton. Funeral services will be held at 10 AM on Tuesday, June 18, 2024, at Williamson Funeral Home in Staunton with burial in Memorial Park Cemetery in Staunton.
