Shooting Victim in the University of Texas Massacre of 1966. 17-year old daughter of Harvey Griffith, Karen also had a sister Pamela. She was a student from Sidney Lanier High School, where Whitman's wife Kathy was a teacher. She was shot in the lung and died after a week in the hospital. Her funeral was held the following day at Crestview Memorial Park in Wichita Falls. Together with Kathy, she was the subject of dedication for her school's 1967 yearbook.

her father was Harvey Griffith JR, born Sept 1,1925 and died on Nov 24,2002. Her mother is Joan Powell Griffin, thought maybe you could add her father to her memorial and her mother.
