Karen Waldie Puryear of Scottsburg passed away on Oct. 18, 2020.

She was born in Macon, Georgia on Aug. 18, 1957 and was 63 years of age. She was the daughter of the late Chris V. Waldie and the late Virginia Lloyd Waldie. She was married to the late Cecil Puryear.

Karen worked with Fluor Daniels Construction. She loved the outdoors, traveling and meeting new people. Her family and the Lord were precious to her. Karen’s greatest love was that of animals, especially dogs. A Bassett Hound named Ginny was her world, losing her broke her heart.

Karen is survived by her children, Stephanie K of South Carolina and Elizabeth Bowman of Goochland; her grandchildren, Chelsea, Anna and Devon Bowman, Cameron, Lily, Tristan, Gracie and Grayson Bevel, all of Goochland; siblings Sandra Glass and husband Butch of Halifax and Russell Waldie of Clover; a host of beloved cousins and other family members, and her faithful friend, Kenneth Keatts.

Her brother, Danny Waldie, and nephews William A. Moneymaker and David Lee Moneymaker, also preceded her in death.
