Karen Leanne Brideau

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our loving mother Karen Leanne Brideau. She entered peacefully into rest in her home on November 9, 2021, at the age of 47. Karen was the loving mother of six children: Jacob, Tori-May, Alexander, Luke, Abigail, and Sam. She will also be lovingly remembered by her many nieces and nephews. Beloved sister to William (Melissa) and Cheryl (Mitchell). Karen is reunited with her sister Lisa and parents Linda and Bruce.

Karen was born and raised in Woodstock, Ontario and moved to London, Ontario to pursue her nursing career. She was a hardworking and devoted nurse for over twenty years and was beloved by many patients. Member of many churches and community organizations, Karen was devoted to her community and loved helping others.

Her six children were the ones cherished deeply and were her pride and joy. She always ensured they knew just how much they were loved, and that she would always be there for them.

We invite all family and friends to join us for a Celebration of Life on Saturday November 20, 2021, from 1pm to 5pm at The Marconi Club located at 120 Clarke Road, London, Ontario N5W 5E1.  A kind reminder that you must be double vaccinated to enter the venue, and please follow all other COVID-19 protocols.  Wareing Cremation Services, Woodstock entrusted with final arrangements.

  • Please accept my sincerest condolences. Karen was a student of mine at St. Mary’s High School in Woodstock in my very first years teaching. She was so kind with a wonderful smile that she shared daily with everyone she met. Karen is a beautiful soul. Wishing you peace in the days ahead.

  • The Aspdens are my second family. We grew up together and spent so much time together that my sister was confused as to who was actually part of our family. Cheryl, one of my dearest friends & Bill, my dearest friend’s big bro (that used to be like another annoying brother haha), I cannot express the sorrow I feel for another loss. You’re in my heart and prayers every day.
    To Karen’s children, I know you were your mom’s pride and joy, and she did her best to give you everything she could. I’ve enjoyed meeting most of you over the years. (Though not often, and I’m not offended if you don’t remember!)
    Love you so much Cheryl. XO
