Karen W. Briggs

CAVE CITY – Karen W. Briggs, age 65, passed away on Tuesday, January 16, 2024, at Vanderbilt University Medical Center. She was born on May 5, 1958, in Louisville, KY to the late James Howard and Ruth Laverne Ross Wright. Karen was married for 47 years to William Briggs, who survives.

Karen worked for many years as a customer service representative at RR Donnelley. After her retirement, she became the clerk for the City of Park City. She was a member of The Way Church in Horse Cave. Karen was an endless optimist; showed grace to everyone she met, and will be remembered for the joy she spread to others throughout her journey here with us.
