She attended high school in Glenns Ferry, Idaho and graduated from Idaho State College in 1957, where she majored in English and was active in Theater. There she met, and often shared the stage with, Charles David Haller, whom she married on August 24, 1957. The couple moved to New Orleans, where Karen graduated with a Master’s Degree in English, and David completed a Ph.D. in Theater.

They had two children, Kurt Lindsay and Melissa Elizabeth, and moved from college town to college town before settling in Lexington in 1971, where David taught theater at Transylvania University until his retirement in 1994. Karen worked at the University of Kentucky, the Council of State Governments, then at the Fayette County Clerk’s office, retiring in 1990. After her husband’s death in 2008, Karen moved to Nicholasville to live with her daughter’s family.
