In Memoriam: Karen Haverlah

Karen Christiansen Haverlah, a member of ADMTA since 1977, passed away on September 8, 2018 after a two and a half year battle with cancer.  She was an active and passionate teacher of many devoted piano students both at her independent studio and also for 29 years at St. Stephen’s Episcopal School.  She was organist at churches including Central Presbyterian and Triumphant Love Lutheran Church in Austin.  Her students whom she taught with love and patience participated often in festivals of ADMTA.  A Celebration of Life service will take place at Triumphant Love Lutheran, 9508 Great Hills Trail, Austin, on Friday, September 28 at 3:00 PM with reception following.  If desired, memorials may be given to St. Stephen’s Episcopal School, Triumphant Love Lutheran Church, or the favorite charity of one’s choice.  Her family likes to remember her with a Bible verse from Revelations 2:3a.  “And I heard a voice from heaven like the sound of many waters and like the sound of loud thunder; the voice I heard was like the sound of harpers playing on their harps, and they sing a new song before the throne.”
