Karen, 76, passed away peacefully on March 8, 2019 at her home in Yuma, Arizona.  

Karen was a happy-go-lucky mom, loved being with family and friends, and always put family first. One of the most honest, strong willed, caring persons you would ever meet, and she passed those values on to her kids and grandkids.  You will be dearly missed and always loved mom!

Karen is survived by her sons Dennis (Jeannie), Doug (Elvia), Russell, and Rodney (Rachel) Purcell; 10 grandchildren, 6 great-grandchildren; mother, Marguerite Eastlick, and brother, Norm (Donlyn) Eaton.  Preceeding Karen in death were her dad, Dennis Eaton; first husband of 20 years, Jack Purcell; and husband of 29 years, Robert Salveson.  

Services for Karen will be at 11 a.m., Wednesday, March 20, at Alliance Chapel, 905 Broadway Ave S, Red Lodge.  Burial will follow at Red Lodge Cemetery.  A celebration of life afterwards at Alliance Chapel.
