Obituary for Karen Elaine Flint

September 17, 1956 - November 27, 2019
San Antonio, Texas | Age 63


Karen Elaine Flint went to be with the Lord on the morning of November 27th. She was 63.

Raised in Virginia, Karen met her husband Michael on a blind date. They quickly married within a week of her graduating from high school and shared 42yrs together till his passing in 2017.

Michael enlisted into the United States Air Force, and Karen joined him on this journey.

Karen held multiple roles while they moved across the country; from 'mama patrol', special needs school bus assistant, and a special needs teaching assistant for a local elementary school in San Antonio. Karen retired in 2005 to take up 'crafting' full time and then ultimately took on her most cherished role of becoming 'Grandma Blue Daycare' for her oldest grandson.

Karen was very active in her church from singing in the choir, working in the nursery, Sunday school teacher, Sunday dinner fellowship, and anything requested of her.

She loved to craft and learned to crochet while stationed in California. She spent her free time crocheting blankets to making wreaths and everything in between….and gifted these to so many friends and her church family over the years.

Karen loved her family and was a devoted wife, mother, and grandmother.

Karen was welcomed to heaven by her husband, Michael Flint and father, Elmer Leonard McDaniel. She is survived by her mother, Mary McDaniel; brother, Jerry McDaniel; daughters, Monica Flint and Clarisa Flint Garza; son in law, Jeff Garza; grandsons, Dante and Diego and step grandchildren, Seth, Maegan, and Dillan.

The family will receive friends from 6:00 to 7:30 p.m., Monday, December 9, 2019 at Porter Loring Mortuary North. Memorial Service will be held at the Chapel at Porter Loring Mortuary at 12:30pm, Tuesday, December 10, 2019. Graveside Service will follow where she will be laid to rest at the Fort Sam Houston National Cemetery.
