It is with broken hearts we announce the passing of our beloved wife, mother, daughter, sister, cousin, aunt, friend and colleague Karen Favell, who passed at her home on Monday, January 17, 2022 with her little Muffin (Julie) at her side. She was 54.
Karen was born in Kenora, ON and was raised in St. Boniface, MB. She was a band member of the Wabigoon Ojibway First Nation. Karen was very accomplished having 5 degrees including a PhD in Education, which she was very proud of. She was an assistant professor in the Faculty of Education at the University of Manitoba.
Karen loved music; from classical to opera to the Beatles. She loved to go to pow wows and be with family. She enjoyed travelling; some of her favourites were Ireland, New York, and Europe. She was an inspiration to so many people. She was most proud of the difference she made in the lives of her students.
Many thanks to the Palliative Care Team for all their care and compassion.
