Karen Virginia Mann (née Price) 1942-2016 We are terribly sad to announce that Karen died on the morning of November 28th in Halifax. She was surrounded by her family, and had a chance to say goodbye to us all. It is very hard to lose her, but the joy, thought and care she brought to the world for her 74 years makes it a little easier. She was a wonderful wife to Ian, whom she adored. As a mother, she was unmatched. Her unconditional love and unwavering support for her children Geoff, Peter and Gillian, and their spouses Michelle, Sarah and Andrew, never flagged, and never will. All her grandchildren revelled in their time with Nan,...

1942-2016

We are terribly sad to announce that Karen died on the morning of November 28th in Halifax. She was surrounded by her family, and had a chance to say goodbye to us all. It is very hard to lose her, but the joy, thought and care she brought to the world for her 74 years makes it a little easier. She was a wonderful wife to Ian, whom she adored. As a mother, she was unmatched. Her unconditional love and unwavering support for her children Geoff, Peter and Gillian, and their spouses Michelle, Sarah and Andrew, never flagged, and never will. All her grandchildren revelled in their time with Nan, just as she did her time with them. She was also a great but humble scholar, a leading light in the field of medical education, and a valued colleague to many educators all over the world.

All those who knew Karen will remember her for her laughter, her intellect, her extraordinary kindness and her gentle fearlessness. She broke many molds, but called so little attention to herself that sometimes it was hard to notice. She was endlessly curious about the world and our place in it, stood up to injustice, and valued each and every person she met, striving at all times to be the best friend and colleague to many. She put her heart into her life, and it was a very big heart. She brought out the best in all of us and we are lucky to have had her in our lives. We miss her so much, and will never forget her.

A funeral service will be held at 1:30 pm on Friday 2 December at the Cathedral Church of All Saints, 1330 Cathedral Lane, in Halifax. In lieu of flowers, donations to Pancreatic Cancer Canada or Save the Children will be gratefully received.
