Karla Sue Bellmer, 60, passed away on Tuesday, May 9, 2023 at home.
Born on November 19, 1962 in Plymouth, Indiana she was the daughter of Elmo and Virginia (Burden) Phelps. She attended Plymouth High School graduating with the class of 1981. Through mutual friends, Karla met this kind hearted soul Terry and they were married on June 28, 2012 in Columbus, OH.
For numerous years she was a concierge business owner. Karla was a woman that would light a room as soon as she entered it, and never left as a stranger making friends with everyone there. Perhaps one of the most generous, gifting and loving ladies that you would ever meet, often making that extra trip to the store to buy groceries for those that needed it as an anonymous shopper never wanted the attention or recognition.
Karla and Terry loved to travel, almost daily. Just getting in the car and pulling up to a new restaurant, using the valet parking was an adventure. She made her way across 48 states with her business an expediter and taking the scenic route to make it to the final destination. Family was important to her, especially when it came to the “sister weekends.” Karla also was an avid reader, belonging to different reading groups.
Karla was an overcomer through all of trials that she would face. A woman of deep faith that showed her love throughout her life.
She is survived by her husband Terry of Rochester; daughters: Eliana (Drew) Wethey of Johnstown, OH; Stephanie (James) Davolio of Lithopolis, OH; sonsL Mark Bellmer of Sedalia, MO; Joseph (Beth) Bellmer of Lancaster, OH; sisters: Sandy Manuwal of Plymouth; Jackie (David) Wright of Plymouth; brother-in-law Rich Larson of Franklin, OH; 9 grandchildren; as well as several wonderful nieces and nephews. and extended family.
Karla is preceded in death by her parents, sister Vicki Larson and brother-in-law Jim Manuwal.
