Karen Faye Bershinsky

July 14, 1942 — June 11, 2022

Windsor

Karen Faye Bershinsky, 79, of Windsor, CO, departed her loving family on June 11, 2022. Karen was born in Denver, CO to Derwood and Harriet Hollister. Karen’s journey ended but she never stopped fighting. No matter how sick she was, she was always determined. When anyone else would have been broken, Karen stayed strong. Through her we know what resilience and perseverance truly look like.
Her main hobbies were cooking & crafting. She was an incredible seamstress, making everything from wedding dresses to draperies, her daughters’ clothes to doll clothes. She crocheted many things such as dish towels & cloths, potholders, etc. But her signature item was scrubbies for the kitchen. She would crochet them out of netting, and everyone had to have at least one.
The food! She had so many good recipes that she prepared, and they were all delicious. She made homemade noodles! You never left Karen’s without a full and happy belly! She canned during late summer and fall and had food for all year, which she generously shared with others.
She was also an incredible giver. When she saw a need, she wanted to meet it. She gave to charities and raised money for the community. After the Windsor tornado she lobbied for the purchase of a generator to be used at the clubhouse where she lived.
Karen was a mother to Lauri Dieterle (Bob) and Wendy Riggs. She raised her children with love in Windsor, CO. Aside from her children Karen is survived by her siblings Darlene Moss and Wesley Hollister (Donna), grandchildren - Nicole Thomas (Jeremiah), Brae Esquibel (Gabe), and Rhealen Riggs, along with 3 great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews and numerous friends she considered her family.
She was preceded in death by her husband William Bershinsky, siblings: Norma McManus, Venetta McCloud, Edward Hollister and her grandson William Miller.
 
The family has entrusted Mark's Funeral & Cremation with the arrangements.
 
A Celebration of Life is scheduled for July 12, 2022, 11:00 am at 9293 Eastman Park Drive, Windsor, CO 80550.
A reception will follow at Century III Club House 1015 Walnut St, Windsor, CO.
 
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to purchase a memorial bench for
the residents of Century III – the place she lived for the last 18 years.
 The family would also like to thank Pathway’s Hospice for their amazing care
and guidance on Karen’s final journey.
