Karleen "Karle" Joy Cremer passed away Dec. 25, 2017, at Cumberland Medical Center. She was born and raised in Carroll, IA.
She is survived by her husband, Jon; daughter, Rebecca of San Miguel, Mexico; granddaughters, Sara and Hannah; grandson, John; and special pet dog, Elie May.
In her retirement years, she volunteered as a mediator for V.O.R.P. and served as a helper at the library in Fairfield Glade.
She was an avid fan of vacations in Hawaii. If you mentioned a trip to Hawaii, she would answer, "Just give me a minute to pack my bag."
She really enjoyed playing golf in the Sunday Couples Golf League at Druid Hills Golf Course and played hand and foot card game with her friends at the mall in Fairfield Glade.
Karle is donating her remains to East Tennessee State University and the James H. Quillen College of Medicine. Any memorial funds will go to the Shriners Children Hospital.
A memorial service will be planned for the future.
