Karen Ann Boede
I was born in Fond du Lac the oldest of five children of Bob and Lorraine Ballwanz. I've live in Wisconsin for all but 7 years (my parents moved to California when I was 2).
I married Mike Boede in 1973 and we have two children, Sarah and Michael and a grandson.
I enjoy reading and hand quilting, although there never seems to be enough time for either. Prior to being a member of Holy Family, I belonged to St.Patrick church since 1981. I'm active in the church as a reader, Eucharistic Minister and helping at the festival.
I've worked for the church since 1996. The best part of my job is meeting and talking with people.
Since moving to Fond du Lac more than 25 years ago, I have worked as as administrative assistant in the financial business. I attend and am active at the St. Joseph site.
I served on the Parish Council and have organized many of the St. Joseph's social events for the past years. I am a liturgy planner, a Eucharistic minister, a member of the Stewardship committee and work with the environment Committee.
I am also a member of Sigma (a charity organization, raising funds for the needy of Fond du Lac).
I'm happy to be a member of the Holy Family staff and look forward to great things happening in our Catholic community as we work together as one.
