Karen Martin-Webster dies at 69

Karen Martin-Webster "Bubbles," 69, passed away on Aug. 26.

Karen was born March 11, 1953. She moved to Wrangell in the late 1970s and lived there through the 1980s, when she decided to move to Petersburg to work at Petersburg Fisheries. She and husband, Darrell Webster, moved south for a few years to be near her mom and then moved back to Wrangell in 2015. They lived in Wrangell until January 2022.

Karen worked as a bartender, dogcatcher, dispatcher, worked pulling lumber on the green chain in a sawmill, and her last job was working for Petersburg Fisheries fish cannery.

"She said she was the 'Queen of the Silver Dollar,' and her husband found her, won her and brought her to this world. They had 22 loving years together. She will be missed," her family wrote.

She is survived by her mother, her husband, daughter, grandson, two brothers, two nephews, one great-nephew and many friends.
