Karlen Leigh (Bowers) Bailey, 43, a former Baker City resident, died Sept. 6, 2004, in New Meadows, Idaho.
A private memorial is planned for later this month.

Karlen was born on Aug. 14, 1961, in Fallon, Nev., to Frank C. and JoAnn E. Bowers. They moved just outside of San Diego to Fallbrook, Calif., when Karlen and her siblings were very young.

The family moved to Baker City in 1977 after the death of her father.

Karlen had spent the last 12 years in the New Meadows area, where she did the things she loved the most — spending time with family and friends, camping and enjoying the Salmon River. She was well-loved for her kindness, free-spirited soul and her love of all animals. She was also known to have a sharp wit and tongue to match.

She is survived by a daughter, Morgan Brinton of Alta, Wyo.; a son, Seth McClarin of McCall, Idaho; a brother, David Bowers and his wife, Kirsten, of Helena, Mont.; a sister, Kathy Mitchell of West Magic, Idaho; nephews, Chad, Cooper and Henry; nieces, Kylie and Hannah and her many, many friends in New Meadows and McCall.

She was preceded in death by her parents and grandparents.

Memorial contributions may be made to the local animal shelter.
