Obituary

Karen Louise Haner, age 60, passed away on August 25, 2022 at Halifax Health Medical Center, Daytona Beach, Florida with her husband at her side, holding her hand.

Karen is survived by her husband, David Haner and her stepson Travis Haner (Kathryn), both of New Smyrna Beach, Florida; her sister Melody Davis (Nevin) of Coopersburg, PA; brothers Rick Swartley (Tina) of Zionsville, PA and John Swartley (Aziza) of Bethlehem, PA; 25 nieces and nephews, and several great-nieces & great-nephews.

She is preceded in death by her mother, Mavis Faye Jones Swartley; father, Richard Nyce Swartley; brother, Gilbert Swartley; and brother-in-her-heart, Tony Gitto.

Born on September 16, 1961 in Doylestown PA, Karen’s bright blue eyes and angelic smile quickly melted the hearts of everyone she met. She ended her career as a Software Analyst in 2014, moving to warm Florida where she valiantly fought cancer, kidney, and heart disease. She loved helping others in need, never dwelling on her own challenges.

A Celebration of Life memorial service is being planned for Florida. No firm date but will be in September. A Funeral Service will be held in Zionsville, PA at a later date. Karen deeply loved her dogs, donations can be sent to the ASPCA or similar.

    My sweet girl,my sister from another mother, my cousin, my best friend who always had my heart and love. You would follow me around as a girl, who grew into an amazing woman who was always there for me when my life would turn up side down. I miss you so much my heart aches. I know your home, with all that have gone ahead, rejoicing. You will always have my heart, I wish I could have heard your voice one more time, feel your hugs, see your smile and hear your laugh. I will I know in my heart and mind, just wish it could have been in person. love you forever

    Karen having fun at the children's Halloween carnival sponsored by her church in Pennsylvania. This was about 7 or 8 years ago. She had a ball dressing up for the kids!
