Karleen Kay Miller, 82, of La Crosse, passed away peacefully on March 8, 2021 at the Onalaska Care Center.

She was born January 29, 1939 in La Crosse. Karleen was born and raised in La Crosse and attended Aquinas Schools.

Karleen spent her life doing what she loved — bartending and doing hair. She was a social butterfly and absolutely loved people–spending time with them, working with them, and meeting new friends. Karleen thoroughly enjoyed spending her time with family and all her friends. She also loved cheering on her Green Bay Packers, and spending quality time with her children. She loved walking, spending time outdoors, and loved cooking.

Karleen is survived by her children Donald Duffrin and Shawn Miller; her sisters Rochelle and Mary; and her brother Mike.

She was preceded in death by her parents; and her sister Bonnie.

A celebration of life will be held at 2pm on Friday, March 19, 2021 at The Gathering Place, 133 Mason Street, Onalaska, with a visitation beginning at 1pm.

Coulee Region Cremation Group is assisting the family.
