Karen Coons Obituary

Karen G. Coons, of Middleburgh, was born on December 17, 1959 and passed away at home surrounded by her loved ones on February 22, 2024, after a short battle with cancer.


She was a lifelong resident of Schoharie County. She graduated from Middleburgh Central School in 1979 and went on to become a pilar of the community. Karen followed in her father’s footsteps where she ran and owned Lenny’s Tire Service, a business that has been in the family since 1967. It wasn’t always easy for her as it is a mostly male dominated industry. However, she dedicated herself to the business, serving the community and was able to persevere over every obstacle. Customers will remember her humor, quick wit and never holding back her uncensored opinions. Her friends and family will miss going on vacations to the beach, road trips, her pranks and love of photography.


 She was predeceased by her father and mother: Leonard R. and Joan T Coons.

Her loving memory lives on with her two sons: Catlin “Dude” Haemmerle (Jen#2) and Timothy C. Haemmerle (Jenn#1); her grandson: Timothy J. Haemmerle, AKA “lil buddy”; her sister: Susan L Hinkley; along with many nieces and nephews whom she loved fiercely. Also, her cat killer.
