Obituary for Karen Sue Combest

May 16, 1963 - September 9, 2017
Austin, Texas | Age 54


Karen Sue Combest was born May 16, 1963 in Austin, Texas. She died September 9, 2017 with her daughter by her side.

Suzy-Q as she was nicknamed by her brother, was beautiful, independent, hardworking, loyal, and a loving mother. Suzy had a special love for the beach and spent many hours searching for shells and romping through the waves. She also loved the wide open spaces of Alaska, where she successfully managed a lodge for nine years. She was a handywoman who could fix any problem that came her way with her large collection of power tools. She loved dancing, bowling, music and movies. Suzy was a very creative and artistic woman with many talents including sewing, painting and cake decorating.

In 2015 she moved back to Texas to be closer the family, where she spent the last two years making memories with her grandchildren, Erin and Conner's eyes would light up every time that saw Gammie.

You left this world too soon and will be deeply missed by all who knew you. So soar with the angels and swoop down every now and then to keep us in line. We Love You Suzy-Q!

She is preceded in death by her father, James O. Naven.

Karen is survived by her mother, Louise Naven; brother, Alan Naven; daughter and son-in-law, Nicole and Neal Schumann; two darling grandchildren, Erin and Conner Schumann; and ex-husband, Jack Combest.

Her Memorial Service will be held at Weed-Corley-Fish Funeral Home, 2620 South Congress, Austin, Texas on Saturday September 16, 2017 at 2:00 pm.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that a donation be made to a charity of your choice.
