Karen Hagaman Obituary

Karen Sue (Rosser) Hagaman, age 72 of Albany, OH, formerly of Beaver, OH, Waverly, OH, & Columbus, OH, died Monday, October 23, 2023, at her home.

She was born December 1, 1950, in Columbus, Ohio. Daughter of James Arthur and Agnes Rosser. Surviving is a sister Martha Kay Cameron of Albany, OH, daughter Sabrina Newland of Waverly, OH, two grandchildren, Dawndra Newland of Frankfort, OH, and Kennedy Newland of Waverly, OH, great grandson Maverick Bennett of Frankfort, OH. She also left behind many nieces, nephews, cousins, friends, and those she adopted as family. She also left behind her beloved cat, Midnight, which all of us left behind really wish she had taken with her. She was preceded in death by her parents, & brother, Roger Mack VanFossan,

Sue was a graduate of Eastern High School’s class of 1968. She also attended Manpower in Jackson, OH, to further her education. While she held many jobs in her lifetime, she was best known as Sue from K-mart for her long-term employment at the Waverly K-mart from when the store opened in the early 1980s to the closure in 2000. She then moved to Oasis Therapeutic Foster Care where she was a case manager and then moved into the Assistant Administrator role. She was also known for her teenage Independent Living classes that she led for many years. She had a way with the youth and always made them feel loved and accepted while keeping up with the latest in teen talk.

Sue loved her family, but especially her grandchildren. She was well known for the way she would spoil her grandkids and was well on the way to spoiling her great grandson in an even bigger fashion. She thought nothing of driving an hour or more to attend a T ball game or take pictures before a dance. She tried to attend every sports game her grandchildren played in just to be their biggest cheerleader.

Sue will be greatly missed by everyone who knows her. She was one-of-a-kind and had a way of bringing out the best in everyone she met. She had a sassy attitude and a love of life that is hard to match, and she could befriend even the crankiest of people. Sue was always there when you needed someone to vent to or needed help with a problem no matter how big or small. There is now a hole left by her absence that can never be filled.

There will be no calling hours or services per Sue’s request. She threatened to haunt her family if her wishes were not followed to the letter. And for those who knew Sue and her spunk, she would figure out a way to make that happen. Since Sue considered her cat her baby, donations to an animal rescue or shelter in her memory would be appreciated. She had supported Cat Roundup Rescue in the past.
