Karen Wigent

June 12, 1952 — July 7, 2022

Karen Wigent (Turnblom) passed away unexpectedly but peacefully on July 7, 2022, at her home in Cottage Grove, Minnesota.

Karen was born in St. Paul, Minnesota and graduated from South St. Paul High School in 1970.

Karen was a beloved mother, sister, grandmother, aunt, and friend and was an avid and enthusiastic supporter of her grandchildren’s activities.

Karen is survived by sons Kayne (Claudine) Weiler and Brandon Weiler; sister Leanne Greenheck, brother David (LuAnn) Turnblom; grandchildren Carson, Evan, and Erica Weiler.

She is pre-deceased by husband Bruce Wigent; parents David and Lois Turnblom; brother-in-law Greg Greenheck.
