July 24, 1954 – July 9, 2020
New Windsor, NY

Karen P. Khejl, of New Windsor, NY entered into eternal rest on July 9, 2020 at her home. She was 65 years old.

The daughter of the late Joseph Khejl and Adrienne (Mentberger) Khejl, Karen was born on July 24, 1954 in Queens, NY.

Karen was an Administrator for the Social Security Administration in Manhattan, NY currently retired.

Karen was a volunteer for C.A.S.A (Court Appointed Special Advocates) where she selflessly mentored and helped families in need. She also volunteered as an instructor for A.A.R.P.’s senior defensive driving course. Karen was a true humanitarian helping people and animals with compassion and love. Her greatest love and passion was music. She was Madam President of The N.Y. Ancients Fife and Drum Corp. Karen was also a flutist in the Queensboro Symphonic Band in her earlier life.

Karen had the biggest generous heart. She was a true inspiration to so many lives she touched. Her zest for life was her motivation to continue her fight through these past years to get her back to the life she loved to live. Karen was an absolutely amazing woman. Her courage and determination will never be forgotten. She will be missed greatly.

Karen is survived by her younger brother: Joseph Khejl of Astoria, NY;

Back in the 80's before I moved to Arizona, Karen and I had a warm friendship and went on many band trips and several ski trips in Connecticut and Upstate NY. I always enjoyed our time together because Karen was so smart and intellectual (i think we were both a little nerdy that way) but at the same time she was always laughing and finding the funny side of everything we talked about, and giggling about stuff. Karen had a wonderful way, caring and warm-hearted in every way. I miss those times we had together.

My deepest regrets to Karen's family. I am so sorry to learn that Karen passed away. I worked with Karen at the Social Security Administration but more importantly I always considered her a good friend. She was so smart & funny. She was always upbeat no matter what health challenges she faced. To her dear family, please know that she was admired and respected by all of us that knew her. I can't ever remember seeing her angry. May she rest in peace and be smiling at all of us from heaven.
