Karen Ann Anderson (Mayou)

Karen Ann Anderson (Mayou), 59, of Wilton, NH, passed away on July 18, 2020 at St. Joseph’s Hospital Nashua, NH.

She was born December 22, 1960 in Fort Benning, GA spending most of her years in Brookline, NH. She was a graduate of Hollis Brookline High School. She is survived by her mother, Ann Anderson; her two sisters, Susan Jambard, Leigh and husband John-Luc Metz; three nieces, Blake Jambard, Lindsey Jambard, and Hannah Metz, and one nephew Lucas Metz; two great nieces, Harper and Marlie, and a great nephew Quincy; and husband Charles Mayou. She is predeceased by her father, Carl Anderson Jr.

Karen was a lifelong lover of the arts, following the Grateful Dead and the Rolling Stones. She was a talented artist who founded a unique and successful Batiking business, “Gringo Trail,” designing beautiful handmade attire.

Karen was an avid traveler, exploring the world and having a special affinity for the Caribbean where she loved turquoise water, being kissed by the sun and having her toes in the sand. She brought her eclectic influence back home as one of the creators of The Melting Pot restaurant in Wilton, NH, where she filled the menu with incredible recipes influenced by her travels around the globe.

Karen enjoyed her friends and family, being at home with her beloved kitties, and surrounding herself with gardens of beautiful flowers and bountiful veggies. She shared a very close bond with her father working alongside him at his store, The Color Shop, for decades. She loved her nieces and nephew, always being the adult sitting at the kids table or being in the center of the squirt gun battle. Karen was always up for having a good time!

Her family and friends deeply mourn her passing and hope that everyone can remember the wonderful times and adventures they shared with Karen over the years.
