On March 22, 2020, Karma June (Stephensen) Schulze, loving wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother passed away peacefully in her home in Laguna Niguel, California at the age of 86. Karma was born on August 14, 1933 in Riverton, Utah to Stephen and Hazel (Giles) Stephensen.

    Miss you already Mom. You were always there for me- every dance recital, every orchestra concert and everything in between. You were such a light in my life. Your grandchildren adored you and so did your great grandson. You will always hold such a special place in our hearts. Tell we meet again.

    You will be missed so much. What a blessing it was to have such a loving, kind, supportive, gracious person in my life. You had your share of heartache and pain, which was contrasted by such joy and love in your life. You were so talented and strong spirited. Your amazing legacy lives on.

    I love you mom!

    Kris & Kyle,
    My heart and prayers are with you two and your families. Life is an amazing adventure. You enjoyed your mother all these years. Remember that, and pass those stories to the next generations. You two were great kids when I was your coach, i am sure that as men you are even better. Please accept condolences from the entire Clements family.

    I always had a good experience when Aunt Karma was around. She never got mad at us when Caroleem and I got into her nail polish. She will be missed.

    Hello to the Schultz kids. It’s really hard to lose your mom at whatever age. Just want you to know I’m thinking about you all. I was friends with your mom when you all were little. I remember her telling me what a wild nurser one of the twins was. I loved listening to her tell that story which I will not tell in theses comments but you should call me if you want to hear it. Your mom was a lovely lady and a lot of fun. Oh, but wait. I’m sure she still is in her joyous reunion with her family. Love. Jan and Mike Busby

    Karma was always in a good mood. Cindy and I will always cherish our visits with her right up to her passing. She made us laugh. Our lives are better for having known Karma.
