Ragan, Karen Margarette (Knowles)

Karen Margarette (Knowles) Ragan or “K” as she was known to many, passed away peacefully and with dignity at her home in Fort Macleod on Friday, Aug. 10, 2007, with her family at her side.
Karen’s strength and determination allowed her to survive a 15-year battle with a brain tumor. The pain and the suffering she endured was kept inside. When asked how she was doing, her response was, “I’m doing just fine.”
“Never say never” was one of her favourite sayings. To do anything but her best was unacceptable to Karen. “K” was an inspiration to all who knew her. Her cheerfulness, her friendliness and courage were trademarks of her character.
She will be fondly remembered by all who knew her and she will be missed terribly by her family and friends.
Karen was predeceased by her father Albert Knowles Sr. and by her stepfather Boyd Loyst.
Karen is survived by her mother Louise Loyst of Fort Macleod; her husband Steve; her children, Sandy Ferguson of Blackfalds and Aaron and Lisa Ragan of Lethbridge; her sister Chris Byers of Stettler; her brothers, Mike Knowles of Lethbridge and Barry Loyst of Fort Macleod; her stepbrother Albert Knowles of Kamloops, B.C.; six grandchildren and by special friends Kyle and Gloria Anderson of Grinrod, B.C., Cindy Gray of Fort Macleod and Chris Trotter of Lethbridge.
Funeral service will be held to celebrate Karen’s life at Christ Church Anglican, Fort Macleod, on Friday, Aug. 17, 2007, at 10 a.m. with Rev. Noel Wygiera officiating.
Interment in Union Cemetery.
