Obituary of Karen M. Finn

Karen Marie Finn, age 75, of Pearl River, NY passed away peacefully on Wednesday, February 26, 2020 at Joe Raso Hospice surrounded by her loving family.  She was born on June 11, 1944 to the late Grace (Mastrangelo) and Joseph Carey.

Karen was born and raised in Inwood, NY where she met her husband, Rory Finn.  She and her husband were the proud owners of The Sloop, where they made many friends and shared fond memories.  Together, they moved to Pearl River where they raised their two sons, Rory and Damien.

Karen was known for her witticisms, her love of books, but most of all her dedication to her family.  She was selfless and devoted in her care of her husband who suffers from ALS.  She awed all by her strength, both physical and emotional.

All who knew Karen will miss her smile, her giggle and her ability to make you believe that “everything will be okay” and “that it was all taken care of”.  She was an amazing cook and holidays will never be the same without her. 

Karen is survived by her husband Rory and her children Rory (Mary) and  Damien (Jamie).  She is also survived by her four grandchildren whom she adored: Rory, Colin, Aedan and Jada.  She will also be remembered lovingly by her sister Beatrice (Michael), her sisters-in-law, numerous nieces and nephews, her extended family, the McShanes and the Hands, and many friends whom she also considered to be family.  She is pre-deceased by her parents, Grace and Joe and her brother, Kevin.

Family will receive friends on Sunday, March 1st from 2-4 and 7-9 at Sorce Assumma & Shankey Funeral Home, 34 N. Summit St. Pearl River, NY  10965. (845) 735-4849 www.sorceassummashankey.com

Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Monday, March 2nd at 11 am at St. Margaret of Antioch Church in Pearl River, NY.  Burial to follow at Ascension Cemetery in Airmont, NY.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests memorial donations to be made in Karen’s name to ALS Association, Greater New York Chapter.
