Meal train, donations, set up for Karen Imsdahl and family

Karen Imsdahl and her husband Bill.

by Amber Schmitz, Sumner Newscow — Karen Imsdahl of Wellington was recently diagnosed with Stage 4 small cell cancer in the liver, lung and glands. For the past seven years, she has served as the custodian at the Wellington Public Library, but recently had to resign due to health reasons.

At the present time, her husband, Bill, is not working, as he is taking care of her. This past weekend, a fungal infection was found in her lungs, and she is currently a patient at the Via Christi St. Francis Hospital in Wichita.

A Go Fund Me account has been set up to offset any expenses that arise, including living expenses, as neither of them can currently work. Donations may be made by visiting

Those wishing to take meals to the family can sign up on a particular day through Meal Train. Please prepare enough food for Bill and Karen, plus a couple of extras. Meals can be dropped off at 404 N. Olive. If no one is home, feel free to drop the food off at her son Andrew King’s home at 1216 S. Washington, and they will deliver it to them. Visit the link to sign up.

Cards and donations can also be sent directly to the Imsdahls at 404 N. Olive, Wellington, KS 67152.
