Karen was born February 22nd, 1939, in Chicago, Illinois. She was the only child of Francis and Henry Frenzel.  She grew up in Glenview, Illinois, graduating from Niles High School.  She received a bachelor in Education from Lake Forest College. She then taught English at St. Mary’s High School in Lake Forest where she met and later married the love of her life, Fred Dunn.  Karen and Fred were married on June 30th 1962 and celebrated 55 years of marriage prior to his death this past June.  The couple relocated to Texas in 1971 with their two daughters.  Karen was a tennis enthusiast spending much of her time with friends at Canyon Creek Country Club.  She enjoyed reading, playing bridge and teaching her ESL students. The Dunns were faithful to their Catholic Tradition. Karen volunteered in multiple roles including Catechist and Eucharistic Minister.  She was a sports enthusiast, loyal to her Dallas Cowboys but most faithful to whatever team her grandchildren were on or the university they attended.  She was a devout patriot always having the flag flying in their front yard.  In addition to her family her greatest joy was her friends. She never missed an opportunity to entertain, celebrate, and gather with them, wine in hand.

She is survived by her two daughters, Kim Dunn Landon and her husband Kirk of Waco, Texas and Tammy Dunn Amosson and her husband Brett of San Antonio, Texas.  Her grandchildren, Blake, Jeff (wife Kaylee) and Sami Landon; Joshua, Jac, Luke and Brooke Amosson.  Additionally, she is survived by beloved cousins Pam (husband Mike) Peter of Louisville, Kentucky and Chuck (wife Karen) Kory of Glenview, Illinois.  Karen was preceded in death by her husband Fred, her parents Frances and Henry, and cherished Aunt and Uncle, Lou and Larry Kory.
