Kara Michelle Tannenhaus

Kara Michelle Tannenhaus lived in Lake Hiawatha and Parsippany, New Jersey until 2016 when she relocated and resided in Mechanicsburg, PA with her parents. She was a dental assistant by trade and enjoyed the many years she had with her dear patients and coworkers, who many became her close friends.

Kara had her grandparents Frank and Michelina Ellis and Herman and Irene Tannenhaus. As a young child, Kara spent endless hours with her Grandmother Michelina, Great Grandmother Josephine Genoese and Aunt Kathy Ellis. Kara adored her time with her close family and treasured their love for her. Kara's kindness was contagious and her selflessness was known by all. When Kara loved she loved with her whole being.

Kara's favorite color was purple, her favorite flower was the daisy and her favorite music artist was Kurt Cobain. Kara's favorite past times were crocheting, reading, writing and baking.

Anyone that had the pleasure of knowing Kara saw her as a kind soul. Her mother and father will never have loved a more beautiful woman more than any parent could imagine.

Kara now rests in heaven with her precious guardian angels and her loved ones.

We will miss you more than words could express. Be at peace sweet Kara, love of our lives.

Kara’s family will be remembering her life privately.  Cremation was private.

Kara’s family has entrusted her care to Buhrig Funeral Home & Crematory in Mechanicsburg, (717) 766-3421.  Read Kara’s full obituary, offer condolences and sympathy, share stories and memories, upload photographs and videos, light a candle and sign her official guest book by visiting
