As a young woman she attended drafting school and worked several years in industrial construction. She later worked in the boating industry building boats for Bayliner, VIP, and Baja Boats before joining her husband in starting and growing a business that remains to this day. She was a Master Gardner who loved the beauty of watching new life grow, never saddened by her flowers death in winter but filled with joy at the new opportunities each spring brought. She found joy in watching her numerous gardens grow and become beautiful. In every home in which she lived, she was sure to bring life through her flowers, trees, and shrubs; they continue to reflect her loving touch.
Karon accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as her savior as a young woman. She was faithful to Him throughout her life and shared his message of joy and of hope with those who were suffering.
On August 5, 1989, she married James R. Frierson. They worked together building several successful businesses for 30 years. They first made their home at Hide Away Lake, TX and then moved to Kaufman County in 1998, where they have lived ever since. She was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, and great grandmother. Her family was the most important thing in her life. She is survived by her husband James Frierson, along with three daughters and two sons-in-law: Jenea Goodwin and husband Grant, Megan Flier and husband Joshua, and Ashley Williams. Also remaining are her brother Tim Carver and sister Fawn Largent, two grandchildren - Melonie and Austin Miller – and two great grandchildren, Rowen and Quentin Miller, along with numerous nieces and nephews that she loved very much. The loving care and companionship of her niece, Starla Taylor, over the last year enriched Karon’s life tremendously and enabled her to live and love more fully.
Karon was a person who always made sacrifices for others even if it meant she did without. Our loss is Heaven’s gain and may her giving heart be an example to us all.
