Karen Ann Stock, 60, of Franklin, passed away on September 30, 2022, at Community South Hospital after a sudden cardiac event. Karen was born in Lowell, Massachusetts on February 19, 1962, to Frederick Richard and Beverly Dorothy (Provencher) Musgrave; Frederick preceded his daughter in death in 1999.
An incredibly selfless person, Karen was a devoted caretaker. She was a dedicated mother of three children. Outside of spending time with her family, Karen was an avid reader and loved to be in her garden. A hard worker, Karen worked for numerous years as a hairstylist and esthetician. A talent for baking, her kitchen was incredible, especially around Christmas time; she made the best cheesecake, fudge, and cookies. Holidays were her forte; she never failed to provide a feast for her family.
A very generous person, Karen was always looking for ways to help others. She did that right up until her passing by giving the gift of life to others through organ donation.
Survivors include her children, Eric William (Joanna) Stock, Randi Marie Stock, and Jessica (Stephen) Brown; her granddaughter, Tamsin Joyce Brown; her mother, Beverly Dorothy Musgrave; her siblings, Lynne (Gary) Valcourt, Michael and (Tracey) Musgrave, Richard (Diane) Musgrave; her beloved partner Troy Riser; his children, Margaret Roman (Luc) and Jacob Riser (Katya); his grandchildren, Emma and Kiera Roman; and a host of friends and extended family members.
