Karen Mary Meyers, 71, of Lexington, passed away on Aug. 31, 2017.




Karen, known as Kaffy to family and friends, was born in 1946 to Clifford and Gertrude Dwelle of Rahway, N.J.

Kaffy will be most remembered for her selfless love, dedication to family and friends, infectious laughter, and large family-style meals and desserts. She loved a good book, beach vacations, and a little gambling (slots!).

As the cornerstone of the Meyers family, she was always happiest when her family was together. Her hospitality and welcoming smile made every visitor and friend feel part of the family. She frequently welcomed guests to her home with a warm meal and refreshments.

Kaffy is survived by her husband of 51 years, Kenneth Meyers; four siblings, Robert Dwelle, Bud Dwelle, David Dwelle, Deborah Haug; her four sons, Dean, Scott, Mark, Ken Jr.; and six grandchildren.

In lieu of flowers, please consider contributions in memory of Karen to St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital.

Friends and family will be welcomed for a memorial service on Sept. 16, at 11 a.m. at Harrison Funeral Home.
