Karen Pence

Karen retired in 2014 after a 24½ year radio career and returned to her beloved West Texas. Being able to begin fulfilling her lifelong dream of helping families in Lubbock, Texas at Resthaven Funeral Home and in a local funeral home in Levelland, Texas finally materialized, giving her the fulfillment of serving others.

She is a member of the Texas Funeral Directors Association, National Funeral Directors Association, the Cremation Association of North America, the Panhandle Funeral Directors Association, the Hill Country Funeral Directors Association, and the Funeral Ethics Association; community memberships include the Levelland Chamber of Commerce.
