Karyn E. House

Karyn E. House, age 75, Blue Eye, Missouri

Karyn E. House, born December 12, 1947, in Springfield, Missouri, went home to the Lord on November 10, 2023. Although born in Springfield, she was raised in California where she met the love of her life, Donald House.

In the mid-1970s, Karyn was recruited into the Pierce College Master Chorale, playing the harp, and singing at different venues around Los Angeles, California. In the mid-1990s, she was blessed to discover she had a family of uncles, aunts, and cousins living in the Missouri Ozarks. To her delight she learned she had a loving stepmother, Mildred. This discovery inspired Karyn and Don to move to Blue Eye, Missouri, to be close to her family.

Karyn and Don loved the laid-back lifestyle and all that Table Rock Lake had to offer, especially the new memories they made. They also loved to travel in their RV with friends to warm coastal waters. She loved her church so much that when the “Closer Walk Church” built their new building, she made custom stained-glass windows for the Fellowship Hall.

Karyn was preceded in death by her father, Earl Lawson and his wife, Mildred; brother, Steve Lawson; uncles: Leon and Alvin Lawson; and mother Hope Linder.

She is survived by her loving husband, Don House; his children: David (Elizabeth) and Jennifer (Rodney); Don’s brother, Dale (Candy) House; sisters: Lauri (Skip) Willis and Edie (Ken) Boatright; four grandchildren; one great-grandson; several nephews, nieces, and aunts; and a great group of friends.

Memorial services will be held at the “Closer Walk Church” in Ridgedale, Missouri. Arrangements and cremation are under the direction of Cremations of the Ozarks. To leave an online condolence or memory, please visit
