Karrie passed away on April 4, 2019, in Tuolumne from pancreatic cancer.
She was predeceased by her parents Francis and Mary Balsley; her brother Barry Balsley, and her dearest friend Jean Lane of Bali.
Karrie lived the definition of a good friend. She was genuinely interested in people and loved to listen to your story as much as she enjoyed telling her own. We will miss her lilting laugh as she spun tales of her many adventures around the world. Bali held a special place in her heart. As well as being a world traveler, she was an avid sports fan, ever faithful 49er supporter, hiker, backpacker, music enthusiast, and adventurer.
Karrie is survived by her sisters Jeri Balsley and Mary Lea Balsley; her niece Vanessa Weston; nephew Any Hughes; and grandniece Angelina; her dear friends Brian Sugrue, Karlene Balsley’s, goddaughter Danielle Sugrue, Madeline Adamceski, Paul Bellina, Ed and Shelly Nadolski and scores of friends around the world will miss her greatly.
No services are planned per Made Karrie’s wishes. A celebration of her life will be held at a later date.
