Karlye was my manager when I worked for CPOF at CGSC in 2009- She was a vibrate, colorful, hilarious genius and I know she is missed! May our Heavenly Father comfort her family and friends. Her time on this earth was short but impactful and I'm a better person for knowing her and working for her.

Sending our love and sympathy in hearing of Karlye's death. We have fond memories of her and our Jennifer playing on Gold Rush. She even taught me how to make a special sandwich. Hard to believe how fast the years go by. I hope she and Jennifer can reconnect now in their eternal home. I, Helen went to Saint Mary College outside of Leavenworth. A beautiful area of Kansas. I will think of Karlye now in Leavenworth. You are in our thoughts and prayers. Helen & Joe
