Karen (Niager) Saxton

December 10, 1953 ~ September 22, 2018 (age 64)

(Karen at her niece Megan Young's wedding last year in Savannah, GA)

Karen Saxton went to be with the Lord after she was killed in a car accident on Highway 58 at 5:15 pm on Saturday, September 22, 2018.

She is now in heaven and joins her father, Charles Edward Niager, along with three of her unborn children.

Karen was a teacher for 42 years and spent the past 24 years working at Westview Elementary School. As a young single woman, Karen used the 21st and 22nd years of her life to serve as a missionary in India, living out the gospel by teaching elementary age children.

Karen had a tender heart, a gentle spirit, and loved others well: sacrificially and joyfully. Of all her accomplishments, her greatest was being a sinner saved by Grace. She will be dearly missed.

Karen is survived by her son, Jeff Reid; her husband, Tim Saxton; her mother Willene Niager; sisters Sheryl (Reid) Saxton, Patrice (Nelson) Mitchell; brothers, Keith (Janet Niager) and Paul (Maribeth) Niager.

Funeral services will be held Friday, September 28 at 11 a.m.  in the funeral home chapel.

The family will receive friends Thursday, September 27  from 2 p.m. – 8 p.m.  at Heritage Funeral Home, 7454 East Brainerd Road.
