Karen L. Callahan, age 69, of Erie, died suddenly on Friday November 6, 2015 at UPMC Hamot. She was born on October 27, 1946 in Erie to the late Richard and Dorothy Brotherson Hanson.

Karen graduated from Strong Vincent High School. She worked many years in housekeeping for the local hospitals, Comfort Inn, and Matrix Tool, retiring six years ago.
