I received an email from S Falk this morning that Karen has passed away while being treated for Leukemia. I never had the pleasure of meeting Karen, but we talked many times online and I learned a lot from our discussions. I have not been able to confirm this news yet, so I hope I am wrong, perhaps someone who knew Karen can offer some more information; not a great way to start a week. R.I.P. Karen.

Jerome - The news you rec'd is correct. There have been e-mails circulating in L.A. area. She passed on April 27.

I'm so sorry to hear about Karen, too. Could someone please post one or two of the emails circulating, so that I can send my condolences to her family? Any sort of contact information will do. Or email me, if you don't want to put family information in a public forum; I'm at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Received this today from Mako Koiwai:
“Remembering Karen Zaterman"
After a successful 6 month battle with T-Cell Lymphoma, including a Stem Cell transplant, it appears Karen, 55, might have been done in by the chemicals that saved her. Liver, Kidney and Spleen failure. It will take a few months apparently before the autopsy report is finished.
As Karen’s partner I enjoyed numerous CSI events … talks, convention, dinners and a number of Golf Tournaments … as well as creating the digital version of CSI LA’s photo album:
Thank you for the memories … Mako Koiwai, Karen’s co-driver in Life and Racing. email@example.com
