Amesbury - Mrs. Karin K. (Wennerberg) Doane, 63, of Amesbury, formerly of Middleton, beloved wife of Stephen E. Doane, died peacefully, Friday, September 13, 2019, surrounded by her loving family at Brigham & Women's Hospital in Boston.
Born in Beverly, she was the daughter of the late Ebbe and Hilda (Luscomb) Wennerberg. She was raised and educated in Middleton and was a graduate of Masconomet Regional High School, class of 1975. She continued her education at Northeastern University earning her bachelor's degree.
Mrs. Doane had been employed as a Dietician with Salem Hospital prior to raising her family. For the past 20 years, Karin's passion for baking became her profession. She worked at many farms and bakeries throughout Massachusetts and was known for her dedication to her craft. She enjoyed creating homemade pies and treats for people to enjoy.
Karin's greatest gift was her family. She loved spending time with her husband, daughter, son and was ultimately proud to become a grandmother to her darling grandchildren. She created many memories going on adventures with her daughter always with an ear to ear smile and laughing. She was an over 45-year resident of the Town of Middleton and for last 25 years has resided in Amesbury.
A talented seamstress, Karin enjoyed sewing and crocheting and relished making afghans for her family and loved ones. She had a love for the outdoors. She spent much of her free time tending to her garden. She created a tranquil paradise through her passion and knowledge of horticulture and truly had a green thumb and could revive almost any plant or flower. She just had that touch. She loved to share her love through her creations. No matter if it was her award-winning jams and jellies, her comfy afghans, her delicious pies or her absolutely breath-taking garden or plant baskets, there was always a little piece of Karin in all of it and certainly plenty of her love. She will be deeply missed.
Karin is survived by her loving husband of 35 years, Stephen E. Doane of Amesbury; her daughter, Sherena Doane of Amesbury; her son, Lance S. Doane and his wife Kimberly of Newman, Calif.; her beloved grandchildren, Xander and Zoey; her sisters, Rhonda Amico of South Carolina, Lisa Heininger and her husband David of Colorado and Kristine Woodbury and her husband Richard of Groveland; and several nieces, nephews, and extended family and friends.

Relatives and friends are invited to a Celebration of Karin's life which will be held in Karin's Garden at the Doane family home, 29 Warren Ave., Amesbury, Thursday, Sept. 19, from 2 to 6 p.m. Her committal service was held privately in Oakdale Cemetery, Middleton. Assisting the family with the arrangements is the Peterson-O'Donnell Funeral Home, 167 Maple St. (Route 62), Danvers.
