Karen Yvonne Riker

November 22, 1963 ~ September 1, 2013

Karen Yvonne Riker, 49, passed away on September 1, 2013, to go home and be with the Lord and her mom. Her family was by her side. She was born on November 22, 1963, to William and Bonnie Gooch in Sacramento, CA. The family made their way to Wenatchee, following the fruit harvest. She asked God to bring her a husband and she married Jerry Riker on May 13, 1989, in Monitor. They made their home on Wenatchee Heights. She went to school and earned her GED the same year as her mom, Bonnie. They worked together in the fruit warehouses until her mom became ill and Karen was her caregiver. After her mom’s passing, she stayed home to take care of her home and husband. In the last year, she was doing some caregiving for her mother-in-law, Jean Riker.

Karen is survived by her loving husband, Jerry of Wenatchee; her children, Luke Bosshardt of Spokane, Tabitha (Mike) Snyder of Ellensburg, Nick (Kellie) Riker of Wenatchee, Lance (Sue) Riker of Auburn; her four grandchildren, Taylor, Cody, Adrian and Payton; her three brothers, Steven, Travis and Kelly; her dad, William and stepmother, Ronda of Walla Walla.
