Karen Satterfield, 59, of Sunnyside, went to be with her Lord and Savior on Saturday Nov. 7, 2009.

Karen was born Sept. 26, 1950 in Sunnyside to Thelma and Elmer Satterfield. She grew up in Mabton and graduated from Mabton High School in 1969.

Karen was a bookkeeper by trade and worked many years for H and H Eggs and Valley Building Center in Grandview. She often did bookkeeping for others on the side.
