Karen Land on Roadfood passed away.

I wished her Happy Birthday on Facebook and her partner messaged me back with the following:
Paul, this is Terri, Karen's partner. I am so sorry to tell you, she passed away in July. We had 35 years together - too short a time. I haven't deleted her facebook page, just haven't been able to take that step. She treasured the photos and messages you two shared - thank you.

    I'm sorry to hear it; I believe she had MS and was therefore limited but she did participate frequently when the Fox Valley and central Illinois regions came up for discussion, and we exchanged a few PMs about them over the years.

    I finally figured out, based on ScreamingChicken's references to the Fox Valley, that Karen Land was kland01s. I never knew her "real world" name, only her Roadfood voice.
     
    It truly saddens me that she was never able to join in on any of The Contingent's activities.  I know she had some serious health issues that limited her mobility, but I wish we could have found a place where she would have reasonable access so we could all get together at least once.
     
    She struck me as a tough but thoughtful character who respected the other poster's opinions but stood fast on her own ground and didn't take any guff.
     
    Karen was one of the good ones.  Sympathies and best wishes to her loved ones.

    I never met the lady but she posted pretty regular on my facebook.  It was always courteous remarks.

    Oh no!  Thank you for posting her Roadfood ID.  I didn't put the names together.  We had chatted a few times in PMs.
     
    This saddens me so much.
     
    My heart goes out to Terri.  My condolences to Terri and their families.

    Oh, I had no idea that was Kland01s. She was a good contributor, and a very nice person. She'll be missed.

    On  a visit to Aurora she was kind enough to give us some great tips and we met for breakfast. Terri, you and Karen were so kind to us and I'm sorry for your loss.

    I never connected the names either. I did enjoy her posts---she'll be missed. R.I.P., Karen.

    Like many others on here, I didn't make the connection to her screen name.  She was a valued contributor on here for many years and seemed like a genuinely nice person.  She will be missed.

    I am so sorry a valued roadfooder has gone. I loved her posts and her personality shined through. A doubly sad day for this website.
