Karen I. Mauser, of Lady Lake, FL & Wakefield, NH, beloved wife of Frank Mauser, passed away unexpectedly on April 5, 2022 at age 71. Karen was born in Attleboro, MA, one of five daughters, to Charles and Isabel Bielaska.

After residing in New Boston, NH for 15 Years, Karen and her husband Frank moved to Lady Lake, FL. They more recently split their time between their homes in Florida and New Hampshire.

Karen will be remembered as the most generous and fun-loving person you could ever meet. She would do anything for her family and friends. Her ready smile and love of life made her a friend to anyone who met her. Karen shared a very special and unique bond with her four sisters. Karen truly lived each day to the fullest and encouraged everyone else to join her in that quest. She will be so extraordinarily missed.

Karen had many passions including digging in the dirt, jewelry making, sewing, splashing paint around, baking, and anything artistic. Karen had a wonderful love of animals, especially her cats. Karen also loved the outdoors. She and her husband Frank enjoyed skiing, hiking, boating, and mountain biking.

Karen is survived by her best friend and husband, Frank, her four sisters, Mary Graiko and husband Rick, Christine Harrop and husband Gil, Roxanne Hollenbeck and husband Don, and Robin Mousseau and husband Tim. She is also survived by twelve nieces and nephews and many great nieces and nephews, in both Florida and New Hampshire. She will also be sadly missed by her beloved cat, Mickey.

Please join us to celebrate Karen’s life at Karen and Frank’s home on Friday, April 15th from 1:00-4:00 PM. Donations may be made in Karen’s memory to your favorite animal shelter.

“Each day comes bearing its own gifts. Untie the ribbons.” – quote found on Karen’s refrigerator.

    Aunt Karen was full of life, always ready for an adventure. She loved her family, and as my Godmother, she was my second Mom. I'm filled with memories of her over the years, from riding in her sports car as a kid (always with minty gum), to jumping on her bed, to making crafts and exploring nature. She inspired an appreciation of flower gardening, painting, hiking and crafting in me, and later, in my kids. The legacy she left us includes art pieces, garden sculptures, flowers, and many, many fond memories of her life. She will forever be missed, but never be forgotten.

    Aunt Karen was on of a kind. She has always been a huge part of my life.
    She taught me the love of nature by hiking up in New Hampshire or digging in dirt in her backyard (usually ending with me having poison ivy). When we went outside. She was teaching me how to sew and paint.
    When I had my tonsils out. She was taking care of me in our screen gaboo, me sleeping on a lawn chair and Aunt Karen and Nana playing cards right next me.
    After Bel was born she watched her often. Whether they took naps, watched disney on Bels bean bag chair or playing on the Swing Set. The first game Bel learned to play was Patty Cake which Aunt Karen taught her.
    Aunt Karen was the kind of person you could never forget. She could make a friend in anyone. She would always be around if you needed her or even when you didn't. She will forever be missed.

    Frank and family,
    So, sorry to hear about this, Karen was one of the best people, always happy. I'll never forget the times in Canada with you both
    and Karen talking about her collection of Beanie babies and trying to find new ones on the Canada trips. She was a sweetheart and sorry I hadn't been in touch the last few years. Thinking of you Frank and family and hugs to you all.

    Karen, how many blessed hours I spent with in laughter and tears sharing our mutual love of animals and crafts. And how hard you worked at the Mont Vernon Inn making a better life for everyone who lived there. Karen, your sweet smile and deep chuckle will be with me forever.

    Karen, a ray of sunshine. A gift of light, love, laughter. A bouquet of remarkable talents she happily shared with her New Hampshire neighbors and friends. Karen's passion for life spilled over onto all who were blessed by her presence. She encouraged everyone.
    How I loved being with her talking, walking with or without dogs and watching her with her sweet cats. Karen was a genuine friend, a good listener who you could be serious or silly with. Meeting in Karen's Craft Room was the highlight of countless hours of fun and learning new
    things with fellow neighbors and friends. Karen, you are sorely missed by your entire beloved family and those whose lives you touched.
    Frank and Karen best forever friends. Jeff and I have loved you both more than words could ever express and are deeply grieved by your unimaginable loss. Dear Frank our good friend, we love you and are hugging you close in our hearts.
    Jeff and Marcia
