On January 16, 2021, longtime Michiana BNI member Karen Stemes passed away. She was best known for her 10-minute presentations, where she had the entire group trying on 10 different moisturizers, lip balms, etc. She never saw division whether it was politics, religion, race or background. She simply wanted everyone to be happy. She used to say that she really did not need to come to BNI each week but it was the people she needed. Her fellow BNI members meant so much to her. She will never know that it was us that needed her. She will truly be missed.
