Artist Karen Meer Will Be Missed
Teddy bear artist Karen Ann Meer of The Mad Hatted Bear passed away this week. It is a truly sad day for her family, friends and everyone in the Teddy bear world.
Karen had a sense of whimsy and style that brought out a smile to everyone she met. She was a delightful person and created many unforgettable Teddy bears for us. We feel privileged to have worked with such a talented artist for over three decades. She was a good friend to everyone who met her and we will truly miss her.
Karen A. Meer (nee Ziegler), age 60 of Oconomowoc, passed away suddenly with her loved ones by her side on Monday, December 15, 2014. Karen is survived by her loving husband Tom, sister Lauren (Greg) Lang, mother Dolores Ziegler-Schilling along with many brother/sister-in laws, nieces and nephews. Preceded in death by her father LeRoy W. Ziegler.
Karen aka Madame Whimsey utilized her art teaching degree to reach out and touch her customer's child-like playfulness through the creation of her bears. The evolution of creating and designing has always been a natural and yet mysterious part of Karen's life. She will be dearly missed by many.
A celebration of Karen's life will be held at Pagenkopf Funeral Home in Oconomowoc on Sunday, December 21, 2014 at 3:00 PM. Visitation will be from 1:00 PM until the time of the service.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the family of Karen Meer to assist with funeral expenses.
