Karla J. Babel
Karla J. Babel, age 60 of Fort Atkinson, passed away on Wednesday afternoon, March 25, 2015 at Rainbow Hospice in Johnson Creek.

I was born Karla Jeanette Browning on April 5, 1954 in Hollywood, CA to my parents John and Georgiana (Atkinson) Browning. I enjoyed growing up in California with time spent at the beach, the mountains, and family time with my cousins. I graduated in 1972 from Bolsa Grande High School in Garden Grove, CA. I moved to Wisconsin in 1978 to be near my older brothers. I found a job working at Melster's Candies in Cambridge and this is where I met my husband. I married my best friend and love of my life Richard Babel on June 30, 1981 in Las Vegas, NV. My life was great until 1994 when my kidneys began to fail due to renal kidney disease. Thankfully my brother Ray was able to donate one of his kidneys, which saved my life. Thanks to Ray, I was able to live another 21 years. I feel blessed I was able to see my nieces and nephews grow up and have families of their own. I also enjoyed painting and crafting. Thank you all for being a part of my life. I love you all so much, but it was time for me go....please take comfort in knowing I am home, Hallelujah!
Karla is survived by her husband, Richard Babel of Fort Atkinson, a sister, Connie (Marty) Goudreau of Cambridge, two brothers, Jerry Browning of Nixa, MO. and Raymond Browning of Sun City, AZ., nieces, nephews, and other relatives. Karla was preceded in death by her parents and a nephew Luke Goudreau.

A Celebration of Karla's Life will be held at a later date for family and friends. The Hafemeister Funeral Home and Cremation Service of Watertown is serving the family. Online condolences may be made at www.hafemeisterfh.com.
