Karen was married to Doug Roll on August 17, 1968 in Council Bluffs. Karen worked for the Red Cross until she had her three children: Stacy, Bridget, and Bobbi Jo. She enjoyed bowling, gambling at the area casinos, and doing yard work. Karen especially enjoyed taking care of the many plants and flowers in her yard. In fact, she planted every tree in her yard herself. After her youngest graduated, Karen started working at Land Surveying Services. She worked there for several years. Karen also worked at Town Floral flower shop, arranging and delivering flowers. She would have loved to have a flower shop of her own. After she retired, Karen helped to care for many of her family members, and also enjoyed spending time with her grandchildren.

Karen was preceded in death by her parents, Leo Clyde Hite, Jr., and Jeanne (Nightser) Hite; her brothers Lee, Bob, and John Hite; and her sister Kathy Hite.
