SPRINGFIELD, Vt. – Karen Lee Gould, 71, left her family and friends on April 3, 2017, after a long 
illness. Born in Springfield, Vt., Oct. 9, 1945, she was the daughter of the late Melba (Stearns) and Edward Reynolds.

Karen loved reading, kayaking on rivers and ponds and enjoyed casual golf with 
her husband, Jim. Her home and yard were always beautifully decorated for each 
holiday and her gardens were lovely.

Springfield with her husband and twin sister.

Left to cherish her memory are her husband Jim; daughter Shawna Spire and

memorial this summer. In remembrance, please give a flower to someone you 

Davis Memorial Chapel in Springfield is assisting the family with arrangements.
