Karen Kay Fryman

November 29, 1946 — September 27, 2023


Karen Kay Fryman, 76, passed peacefully on Wednesday, September 27, 2023 at St. Luke’s Lutheran Care Center in Blue Earth, MN.

Karen was born on November 29, 1946 in Fairmont, MN to Earl and Eunice Keithahn and was raised in Guckeen, MN.  Karen graduated from Huntley High School in 1964 and briefly lived in Des Moines, IA where she worked as a secretary.

Upon returning to Guckeen, she soon met Danny Fryman, the love of her life.  While spending time in her dad’s shop, the Guckeen Garage, she caught Danny’s eye while he was working at the Guckeen Grain Elevator.  Just six months later they were married on January 18, 1970.  They were blessed with two children, Curtis and Bonnie.  While raising her children, she spent many years working at St. Luke’s followed by Telex. 

Karen’s greatest loves were her husband, children, and grandchildren followed closely by animals.  Cats in particular held a special place in her heart. 

Karen is survived by her spouse, Danny Fryman; children Curtis (Amy) Fryman of Cicero, IN and Bonnie (Troy) Pullis of Brooklyn Park; grandchildren Andrew and Jordan Fryman of Cicero, IN and Benjamin and Abigail Pullis of Brooklyn Park; brother Cecil (Cheryl) Keithahn of Guckeen.

She is preceded in death by her parents, Earl and Eunice Keithahn and brothers Gary and Roger Keithahn.
