NORTH BILLERICA, MA -- Karen A. Adler, 57 of North Billerica passed bravely at the Kindred Nursing & Rehabilitation Center of Lancaster on April 10. Miss Adler was predeceased by her parents, Antonina "Lee" Cucchiara Flynn and Norman Adler.

Karen is survived by her maternal aunts and uncle, Josie Helow of HI, Margaret Grieci of MA, Mary Buchard and Vito (Theresa) Cucchiara, all of FL; many cousins and friends. Special thanks to her wonderful neighbors, Nancy and Chuck; and to her cousins, Greg and Nina, and her Aunt Margaret who did so much to help her through this devastating, extended sickness. They were a true blessing. Karen handled her illness bravely and courageously, and with no complaint.

Due to her illness, Karen retired from Intercity Home Care where she worked with the elderly. Prior to that time, she ran her own cleaning business for many years and was employed in the Bakery Department at Market Basket in Chelmsford, MA.

Karen was a big Wrestle Mania fan. She enjoyed classic trucks and cars. She was a big supporter of the local Feral Cat society, and allowed a shelter to be setup on her property. She loved ice cream and would keep it in different locations so as to never run out. Karen loved taking pictures. She was the self-appointed "paparazzi" for her big family and many friends. She enjoyed attending as many family reunions, cookouts, birthday parties and other various functions that she could fit into her schedule. She had a heart of gold and would put others first before herself. Karen was a 1976 graduate of Lowell High School. 

No calling hours will be held. A funeral Mass will be held on Saturday, May 10, at 10 a.m. at St. Joseph's Church in Fitchburg, followed by a graveside service. Please send on-line condolences to Casper Funeral Home at Casperfuneralservices.com.
