Karen A. (Alexander) Pare


Mrs. Karen A. (Alexander) Pare, of West Bridgewater, passed away surrounded by her loving family on November 3, 2023. She was 56. 

Born in Quincy, a daughter of the late Robert J. and Helen M. (Hartnett) Alexander.  Karen was raised in Hanover and created a loving home with the love of her life, Ray in West Bridgewater.  Karen worked for over 30 years for State Street Bank. 

Karen was passionate about every aspect of her life, including her hobbies, and in her spare time she enjoyed decorating (especially for Christmas), traveling, all things Disney and most importantly doing her favorite pastime; scrapbooking.  Karen always took immense pride in her work and her attention to detail was impeccable.  Above all, she loved making others smile.

According to everyone who knew and loved Karen, there are few words that can accurately capture her essence.  Vivacious, bubbly, joyful and simply FABULOUS.  Karen was one of the brightest lights on this earth.  She was unlike anyone else and was instantly loved by everyone she met.  She has left a void in so many lives and will be deeply missed by all who were lucky to know her.
