Karen Ransom Obituary

The journey of Karen has been one filled with love for the God she served and the family she simply adored. Affectionately named “Karen Ann”, she was born in Seattle, Washington on June 6, 1961 to parents Katherine and Rueben Ransom. She was a beautiful baby, they would later learn was also God’s special child.
She spent the first 20 years of her life in Wichita Falls,Texas where she was introduced to the Lord, gospel music, and preaching at Mount Pleasant Missionary Baptist Church under the pastoral leadership of Reverend R. L. Castle and Reverend R. M. Castle. As a child, Karen was also lovingly cared for by the daycare staff of the church.
Although, she did not formally matriculate through the public school system, she did receive educational support at Bowie Elementary School for special needs and handicapped children.
Karen spent the remainder of her life in Houston, Texas with her mother and sisters. She was baptized at Pleasant Grove Missionary Baptist Church, under the late Reverend C. L. Jackson. She later attended Wheeler Avenue Baptist Church, Reverend William Lawson, Pastor Emeritus and Reverend Dr. Marcus D. Cosby, Pastor.
Karen loved church services and would rock, clap her hands, and praise the Lord in her own way. She was the happiest when she was around people and loved all kinds of music. Everyone who knew Karen loved her and would comment how she could light up the room with her smile. She will be truly missed.
Karen made her final transition into eternal rest on January 10, 2024. She was preceded in death by her parents and her sister, Nannette Ransom and brothers, Fred Hampton and Ronnie Ransom. She leaves to cherish her memory sisters, Gwenavette Ransom, Houston, Texas, Lexxie Jackson (Donald), Beverly Ransom, and Denise Harris (Bruce) of Seattle, Washington; brothers Steven Ransom, Allen, Texas, Mark Ransom, Seattle, Washington, Ray Hampton, Tennessee and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
