Karon then worked with her husband in their family business, Anderson Motor Co. In later years she was the primary care giver for her son Tye who suffered from Multiple Sclerosis.

She was a member of the Messiah Lutheran Church in Aledo, Aledo Chapter H of the PEO Sisterhood, Oakview Country Club, and the Aledo Investment Club. Karon always enjoyed visits from clergy and other church members over the years. Her greatest joy was watching her children and grandchildren grow up.
