Obituary for Karen McGraw Huffman

Karen Lynn (McGraw) Huffman of Tornado, West Virginia, went to be with the Lord January 11, 2019.

Karen attended East Bank High School and graduated as valedictorian in June 1982. She attended West Virginia Institute of Technology and graduated with honors and a degree in Computer Management and Data Processing in 1986. Karen was employed by Eastern Associated Coal in 1986 and remained with the company under various owners for over 30 years. She was most recently employed by Advantage Technology where she was a hard worker and respected by her colleagues. Karen was known for her generosity and kindness. Over the years she supported many causes including the two closest to her heart, Secret Santa and Andrews Heights Snack Pack Program coordinated by Gateway Ministries. Karen loved to travel, shop, read, and go to the movies (mainly for the popcorn). She also loved snowmen and tie-dye shirts.

Karen is survived by her husband of 32 years, Terry Huffman, and her daughter, the sunshine of her life, Emma Noelle Huffman. She is also survived by her parents George and Anna Belle McGraw, her sister and best friend Saundra Boyd (Michael), and her brother Brian McGraw (Rhonda), and her three nieces whom she loved very much, Abi, Shelbie, and Kayla. She will be sadly missed by many aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends. An integral part of the community, she will be sadly missed by co-workers, church congregation, and many other countless lives she touched.

Funeral will be Wednesday January 16, 2019 at 11:00 AM at Gateway Christian Church at 422 B Street, St. Albans, WV 25177. Rev. Joel Copley will officiate.
