Karen Allyne Balog Obituary

Karen (Denham)(Haddad) Balog passed peacefully on April 13, 2024, at the age of 85 at Sunrise of Troy. She is survived by her sons, Michael Haddad (Julia Sherwin) of Oakland, California, and Daniel Haddad of Ferndale, Michigan. She was predeceased by her second husband, Stephen Balog, and her first husband, Joseph Haddad. Karen was born on Easter Sunday, April 9, 1939.


Karen was a loving mother to her sons, Dan and Michael, who are deeply grateful for her unconditional love throughout their lives, and will miss her immensely. She loved caring for others and volunteering in her catholic church communities. She never stopped being a Registered Nurse, even after she retired following a career that spanned 40 years.


She was an amazing cook and loved to entertain friends and family with delicious meals in her warm home. She also was a master gardener, and was proud of her beautiful gardens with many rare plants and flowers that thrived under her care.


She was a descendant on her mother’s side of Elder William Brewster, a Mayflower passenger in 1620, and had the strong constitution of those who survived that journey. Funeral services will be held at St. Anastasia Roman Catholic Church in Troy, Michigan, on April 26, 2024, at 1:00 p.m.
