Obituary

Karen McGettigan of Clementon, New Jersey passed away after a ten-year battle against cancer on May 20, 2022. She was preceded in death by her father Thomas McGettigan. She is survived by her mother Miriam McGettigan, her brothers Kevin and Mark McGettigan (Paula), her sister Colleen Dorrance (Kevin), her niece Kelly Giuliani (Christopher), her nephews Matthew McGettigan, Connor and Ryan Dorrance, her life-long boyfriend Derek Mays, and many extended family members and close friends.

Karen was born on November 4, 1968, in Abington, Pennsylvania. She was a proud graduate of Upper Moreland High School class of 1986. She went on to receive her Bachelor of Science in Administration of Justice from Pennsylvania State University in State College, Pennsylvania class of 1991. Her final position was as Director of Business Services at Summit Surgical Center, Virtua Health System, Voorhees, New Jersey.

Karen was a devoted, caring, and loyal daughter, sister, sister-in-law, aunt, girlfriend, godmother, and friend. She spent her entire life putting others before herself. She spent her life letting the people in her life know how precious they were to her and that she would do anything they needed to bring comfort in their lives. She dedicated her time as a lector at Saint David Roman Catholic Church in Willow Grove, Pennsylvania. Her greatest joy in life was spending time with her niece and nephews. Her claim to fame was water balloon tosses at family gatherings.
