In the last weeks our family lost its central pillar, a Wife, a Mother a Grandmother.
Karen Diane Slater passed away peacefully after short battle with illness.

As a wife she was a constant source of strength reassurance and true love. A Lady so kind
who made my life so full enriched and complete.

As a Mother and Grandmother she was of course Karen, loving warm and kind, forever smiling, but always prepared step in when she wished to steer and keep her lovely children on the right path and ensure they shared her values and beliefs on life.

Karen served all her working life at Kirkstead Junior School, where she was last working as Head of School. A dedicated professional, who as in all her life with others, put the children she looked after first on every occasion, and ensured that they got every opportunity through feeling safe, happy and valued to get the best out of their time at School.

Messages of condolence, from School, pupils, parents and staff have been humbling and overwhelming. As have those from our lovely friends and family. It has been a great strength to us in the last months, and we thank you with all our hearts.
Karen was a very private person so learning about how she was thought of and respected and loved has been extremely moving for all of us over these last week’s.
But we must as Karen always insisted, to don’t stop thinking about tomorrow, yesterday’s gone, yesterday’s gone.

Karen - thank you - you put your heart into Kirkstead and it was a privilege to know you. Thank you for being part of Emma and James' education and in helping them become the children they are today. And on behalf of the governors, thank you for your support, guidance and inspiration - you will be greatly missed.

I didn't know Karen for long but I can feel the hole in the community she has left behind, she was always kind and helpful. My condolences to the family from myself and everyone from Jpac.
