For Karla, sports were her passion.  She never missed a Packers, Brewers, or Badgers game.  In fact, she scheduled her life around sports.  She especially loved watching college football and basketball.  Karla could talk sports with anyone and had a very deep knowledge of most sports.  She enjoyed spending her time reading, playing games on her iPad, occasionally going  to the casino, spending most of her time at home, and all the simple pleasures of life.  Karla loved to cook for her family, and always gave her time for her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.  She never judged and will be remembered as a peacemaker.
