Karen Sue(Chamberlain) Orr passed away on Friday, July 23, 2021, at her residence in Ackerman, MS. She was born on August 9, 1944, in Chicago, IL, and was 76 years old.

Karen was a special lady in this community and deeply loved by her family, friends, and church family. She was a devoted member at Enon Cumberland Presbyterian Church and always supported the church faithfully. Her We Care Group meeting on Wednesday mornings was the highlight of her week, and she enjoyed the fellowship with each attendee, making life-long friends with each. She also loved her pups, which were her family too, and the community cats that showed up on her porch every day for food and attention!

Karen was a faithful employee, and held many clerical/administrative positions in several jobs before her retirement. She held positions with companies in California before moving to Mississippi. Upon her move to Ackerman, Karen worked in clerical postions at Belwood, and later worked with the Department of Human Services where she retired after appoximately 6 years.

During her latter years, Karen faced physical issues that limited her time in some of the things that she enjoyed. But, thankfully, there were special friends who walked with her and kept her active and cared for during the difficult days. We would like to thank each of them for their love and support. They each held a special place within her heart.

Funeral services will be held on Sunday, August 1, 2021, at 3:00 p.m., at Enon Cumberland Presbyterian Church, with Rev. Jerry Lawson officiating. Coleman Funeral Home of Ackerman, MS, is in charge of all arrangements. Visitation will be held from 2:00 p.m. till service time at the church. Burial will follow in Enon Cemetery.

Karen is survived by 2 daughters, Sandie Keister of Bakersfield, CA, and Barbara(Scott) Wade of Florida. She also leaves behind 5 grandchildren and 7 great-grandchildren.

She is preceded in death by her husband, Luther Orr, and her parents.

Memorials may be made to Enon Cumberland Presbyterian Church.
