Karen Ann Hinton

March 24, 1961 ~ July 13, 2022 (age 61)


On the night of July 13, 2022, Karen Ann Hinton slipped from early sorrow and entered
into eternal rest at home peacefully.
Karen was born March 24, 1961 to the late Anna Mae Twyman Johnson and Horace Edward
Hinton. She was one of twelve children.
She received education in the Poughkeepsie City School District. Karen worked in many
places during her life, and before her illness Karen worked as a recess monitor at Morse Young
Child Magnet Elementary School in Poughkeepsie, NY.
To know Karen was to have unconditional understanding like no other. Karen was a
devoted mother; grandmother aunt, sister to all and a giving person always ready to help
someone or anyone in need. In addition to raising her own children, Karen frosted many other
children. She adored her family and friends and loved spending time with her grandchildren.
One thing about Karen she always was willing to give free advice weather you asked for IT or
NOT! Karen had a bright and friendly personality, people gravitated towards her and Let’s not
forget if you needed a ride no matter what and where Karen was there.
Karen leaves to celebrate her life seven children Basheeba Johnson (Hodayah Johnson)
of Poughkeepsie, NY Tiron King (Courtney Lyons-King) of Cold Spring NY; Shemaiah King;
