Karen Gayle Jett 1956-2024


Karen Gayle Jett, born March 9, 1956 in Fort Worth, left this earthly realm May 29, 2024 at 9:41 p.m. after valiantly enduring complications that accompanied several pulmonary issues and a lung transplant.

Friends and family, please join us for a memorial service at noon Saturday, June 22, at Azle Christian Church to celebrate the life of Karen.

In lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation in honor of Karen to your favorite animal rescue or shelter.

Karen experienced life to the fullest.

She enjoyed creating memorable moments with her family, being outside — especially in her beautiful yard or on the lake listening to music with her husband, sharing her infectious laughter with friends (or a stranger!) and showing love to the many sweet pets that found their way into her life over the past 68 years.

She taught those of us that call her wife, mother, "Betty," friend, daughter, sister, cousin, niece, aunt and "partner in good times" that kindness is the ultimate goal and gift we can give to others and ourselves.

She is our gift that is loved enormously and will be missed in equal measure.

She will be met in heaven by her father, Kenneth Lee Foster; her mother, Marie Foster; older brother Kenneth Lee Foster Jr., and younger brother Kevin Edward Foster.

Left in this world to celebrate her strength and unwavering resilience are:

Her loving husband, David Wayne Jett; daughter, Bailey Marie Verrett; son, Jacob Lee Jett; numerous beloved nieces and nephews, her flock at Azle Christian Church and countless lifelong friends.
