Karen Suzanne Hamlett

November 25, 1951 — August 2, 2023


Karen Suzanne Ziemer Hamlett passed away on August 2nd, surrounded by family, after her two year long battle with cancer. She is survived by her loving husband of 50 years, Randy Hamlett, and children Jason (Shannon) Hamlett; Jeremy (Kristine) Hamlett; Jordan (Mike) Zieff. She also had six grandchildren she adored: Cooper, Marley, Reece, Brooks, Ryenne and Vaughn. 

Karen was born and raised in Waterloo, Iowa by parents Gerald and Shirley Ziemer. She attended grade school at Blessed Sacrament and graduated from Columbus High School in 1970. Karen moved with her husband and children to Colorado in 1984, but always prided herself on her Iowa roots. 

Karen loved reading, knitting, crafting, baking, playing cards, traveling alongside Randy to his car shows, and watching her grandchildren’s numerous activities. She worked for many years in the finance industry and retired from Hewlett Packard in Colorado Springs in 2015.

Karen was preceded in death by her parents and her brother Dennis. She is survived by brothers Martin, Craig (Deb) and Kirk Ziemer. In lieu of flowers, Karen’s wishes were to have donations sent to St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital.
