Karen Cavelle Anderson

(nee Lane)

September 14, 1963 – June 21, 2024

Pasadena, NL



It is with profound sadness that the family of the late Karen Cavelle (Lane) Anderson announce the passing of their precious wife, mother, daughter and Nanny Ner, at the tender age of 60 at the Palliative Care Unit on June 21st, 2024.


Leaving to mourn with adoring & loving memories are her husband, Bradley Anderson, her two incredible sons, Justin (Renee), Gregory (Sheena), her mother, Ida Lane, two brothers, Gary (Eileen) & Gerald (Barb), the father of her children, Bruce (Christine). Her brothers & sisters in law, Chris (Geraldine), Paulette (Kent), Hobart (Barb), and Moreen (Murray) as well as her mother in law, Marion. Her best friend since they were two years old, Margaret Houlahan, as well as nieces and nephews. Last but not least, the four lights of her life, her precious grandchildren; Lucy, Jack, Anna, and Amelia.


Karen was predeceased by her father, James (Jim) Lane as well as her two brothers, Roger & Bruce Lane.


Karen loved to be in her kitchen, cooking & baking (as long as someone else did the dishes). She also loved her garden and shopping at Winners; she loved shopping in particular for her grandchildren and called it her “retail therapy.”


A special thank you to the staff of the Palliative Care Unit at the Western Memorial Regional Hospital in Corner Brook for their compassion during this difficult time. As well as Dr. Park and nurses of the chemotherapy unit in Corner Brook and lastly, Dr. Al – Asaaed (AKA Dr. Handsome, Karen would call him) who helped her fight & conquer as long as they could.


Cremation has taken place and there will be a celebration of Karen’s wonderful life at her home   & garden in Pasadena on June 25th, 2024 at 2 o’clock in the afternoon. She would want us to gather around together, to share stories, laugh, eat and celebrate her short but fulfilled life.


Karen, no jar of raspberry jelly, chocolate chip cookie or cheesecake will ever taste the same.  It’s hard to fathom that this much grief & peace coexist at the same time.


~ Our time together was never enough, but we’ll love again in a place where time doesn’t exist. ~
