Kari L. Carpenter


Kari L. Carpenter, 49, of Homerville, passed away unexpectedly Monday, April 15, 2019. She was born in Cleveland and raised in Pontiac, Illinois by her parents, Donald and Cynthia (Hudak) Wajtaszek, along with her four loving brothers, David, Jason, Timothy and Brandon.

Along Kari's journey, she married her best friend John on November 7, 1998. Together they had eight beautiful children, Chelsie, Cory, William "Bill", Cody, Tiffany, Blaze, Alexander "AJ" and Douglas "DJ".

Kari is also survived by her grandchildren, Amaya, Hayden, Ethan, Jacob, EllieMarie and Julissa and nieces and nephews.

In a world that can be cruel and unforgiving, Kari was the opposite. She was so kind to everyone she came in contact with. Even through tragedy she was able to make one more act of kindness; organ donation.

Please join her family for a Celebration of Kari's Life on Friday, April 26, 2019 at 11 a.m. at Lafayette United Methodist Church, 6201 Lafayette Rd., Medina.
