January 24, 1957 - June 21, 2019
Karla Rae Jamieson TRAVERSE CITY – Karla Rae Jamieson, age 62, of Traverse City passed away on Friday, June 21, 2019 at her home in Traverse City. Karla was born at Munson Medical Center in Traverse City, on January 24, 1957 to Calvin and Verla (Miller) Jamieson. Karla grew up in Traverse City where she graduated from Traverse City Central High School. She was a gifted dancer, singer, and high school cheerleader where her go-getter attitude led her to succeed in whatever she was doing. After high school Karla was blessed with her only child, Ryan Fouch. Karla did spend a bit of time living in Panama due to her marriage at the time. She eventually made her way back to Traverse City where she worked as she was able doing various jobs around the area. With Karla’s limited ability to work, she kept her family close and her faith strong. She was often faced with the question of what her purpose was here, and it was her compassion and care for everyone around her that reinforced her purpose. As Karla lived alone, it was not uncommon of her to prepare dinner for herself as well as five of her neighbors, always sharing and giving back when she could. She truly did care for everyone she was surrounded by. Although at times Karla was in pain unimaginable, she always persevered. She was an absolute, go-getter. Karla loved to throw parties and put a spread together like you wouldn’t believe. She was a very kind, genuine, authentic soul who always put her best foot forward. As her family would say, she’s the glue that kept them all together. Karla is survived by her father, Calvin Jamieson, son, Ryan Fouch, grand-daughter, Kylie Fouch, siblings; Kelli (Glenn Christian) Larson, Krista (Gerald) Becker, and Jamie (Brian Burkholder) Jamieson. Karla was preceded in death by her mother, Verla Jamieson, and brothers; Calvin Jamieson II, and Kim Jamieson. Please join the family for visitation on Monday, July 1, 2019 from 4:00 – 7:00 p.m. at the Reynolds-Jonkhoff Funeral Home. The funeral service celebrating her life will be held on Tuesday, July 2, 2019 at 11:00 a.m. at the Old Mission Peninsula United Methodist Church where a visitation will be held one hour prior to the service.
