Karen graduated from South Cache High School in 1953. She married Douglas Rash Chugg, her eternal companion on October 8, 1954 in the Logan Temple. Their life together was an adventure, filled with trials, joy, travel, and life-long friendships.

She sang with the Sunset Harmonettes and Utah County Chauntenettes Ladies Chorus and served as the Vice President of the Chauntenettes.
