Obituary for Karen Lynn Martin

Karen Lynn Martin, a resident of Milford, died on December 24, 2017. She was 60 years old.

Born to Gerald and Betty Taulbee on August 14, 1957, Karen spent most of her youth living in multiple towns around Oakland County including Wixom and Commerce. After graduating from Walled Lake Western High School in 1975, she soon met her husband of 39 years, Michael Martin. The two found themselves establishing a family with the addition of their son Josh and settled down in Commerce, where they lived for many years. Eventually Mike and Karen moved to the village of Milford where Karen ‘adopted’ and treated many of the neighborhood children as her own. Karen loved her family and adored her grandchildren. Time spent with them was always a top priority. An avid gardener, she was meticulous about making her yard beautiful, earning a listing on the Milford Garden Tour! She will be remembered as a loving, kind women who was set in her ways and she will be greatly missed.

Karen is survived by her husband of 39 years, Michael; son, Josh (Susan) Martin; grandchildren, Adalyn and Sophia Martin; father, Gerald Taulbee; brother, Steve (Gina) Taulbee; niece, Kristin (Chad) Orde; great niece, Elin and great nephews, Olen and Eli. Karen is also survived by many beloved friends, neighbors and extended family members.

Karen was preceded in death by her mother, Betty Taulbee (2014)
