Karren Shumate born October 18th 1967 Tampa FL died March 24, 2021. Karren Denise (Brooks) Shumate was well loved within her family and community, but she also gave unlimited amounts of love. Her friends came from all walks of life and that diversity proved Karren cared if the person were kind, or generous, or thoughtful because these were the kinds of things that were important to her. Karren was close to all of her family, she saw them and talked to them often. Especially her mother Betty, who she spoke with every day. Karren was a provider for family and occasionally for friends who might find themselves in a jam. Karren had a casual, easy going attitude and a great sense of fun. She cared about all people and had a heart as big as a mountain. When she finally met the love of her life, her husband Stephen, every day was an adventure and every moment a gift. She gave so much love and she lived a life defined by love.
