The News-Times - - OBITUARIES/NEWS -

On Novem­ber 22, 2018, Thanks­giv­ing Day, Karen Tic­knor Bul­widas passed away and joined her beloved par­ents in Heaven. She was born in Mt. Kisco, NY on May 31, 1947 and grad­u­ated from Fox Lane High School in 1965. She was mar­ried to Peter Bul­widas on June 24, 1972. She leaves be­hind her hus­band of 46 years Peter Bul­widas, her brothers John Tic­knor of Lin­coln, Cal­i­for­nia and Peter Tic­knor of Tampa, Florida and their fam­i­lies. They were all very dear to her lov­ing heart. Karen worked at Pep­sico/ Pepsi Cola for 27 years be­fore Parkin­son’s made it too dif­fi­cult. She en­joyed her col­leagues there and forged some deep friend­ships. Karen and Pete lived in Mt. Kisco, NY prior to buy­ing a home in New Milford, CT where they lived for the rest of their mar­ried lives en­joy­ing the birds and other oc­ca­sional for­est visitors in­clud­ing a chubby black bear who wan­dered into their yard now and then. They spent many sum­mers on Cape Cod and even­tu­ally bought and re­stored a lovely home there. The roses and other flow­ers she planted there were a joy to see. Karen was an avid nee­dle pointer whose skills were truly awe­some. Nu­mer­ous friends and fam­ily mem­bers were de­lighted when they re­ceived some of her pil­lows and wall hang­ings. Those will be trea­sured for­ever. She also en­joyed bead­ing and made many lovely pieces of jewelry. Karen was a woman of deep love, strong loy­al­ties and a gen­er­ous spirit who hap­pily en­ter­tained friends and fam­ily in both New Milford and the Cape as long as she was able. She and Pete loved cats and adopted many of them over the years, some of which had phys­i­cal and med­i­cal chal­lenges them­selves. Those lucky kit­ties lived the good life with them and were loved and cared for like the fam­ily mem­bers they were. Those of us who were lucky enough to be her fam­ily will miss her be­yond mea­sure, and we fill the void her pass­ing has left in our lives with won­der­ful mem­o­ries that de­light our hearts.
