Sunrise September 10th 1962 – Sunset September 1st 2021

Karan Castellanos of New Port Richey, Florida passed away at the hospital on Wednesday,  September 1st at the age of 58 years old. Karan was born in Atlanta, Georgia on September 10th, 1962. Karan worked as a court clerk for the Broward County court house in her younger years and worked as an office manager for Advanced Cooling Systems for many years.

Karan loved her family dearly. She enjoyed spending summer vacations with her grandchildren. They enjoyed their summers at Busch Gardens. Karan also enjoyed traveling to Oklahoma to spend time with her family. Karan loved spending time with her family and her friends who became family.

Karan absolutely adored animals. She used to call herself Dr.Doolittle. She would say she can hear stray animals saying “take me home and feed me.” Animals would never go hungry if they were to come across Karan. She enjoyed being outside. She loved nature, butterflies, and the fresh air. She was amazed at the beauty of plants, trees, and flowers. You could always win her over if you bought her a wind chime. She couldn’t get enough of the birds and the squirrels. Her weakness was the beach. She could sit there for hours enjoying the sunrise and the sunset.

Karan is survived by her mother Irene Whitworth, her daughter Lena Sue Castellanos Sanson, her grandchildren Manuel, Julissa, and Jonathan, her son in law Fernando Carlos Sanson. Along with her Brother Randall Whitworth, her significant other Sylvia Leah Messer, followed by extended family members and many friends.

Karan is proceeded into death by her father Hoyt Whitworth, her grandmother Mary Hall, her sisters Tina Vescio and Tana Sinagra, her nieces Rachael Vescio and Rebecca Vescio, her nephew Richard Vescio, her ex husband and forever friend Ciro Castellanos and many extended family members and a few close friends.

Karan was loved by many and will be greatly missed. She will continue to live in our hearts forever.

What our families say...

“When my sister-in-law passed away unexpectedly, me and my family were thrust into this process for the first time. Charlie Webster was my first and only contact with Michels & Lundquist and he was FANTASTIC from start to finish. He was sensitive, understanding and fully explained the process and made things easy for me during a very difficult time. The services were carried out flawlessly and the pricing was very reasonable. I am very thankful for his kind words and conscientious work. I would HIGHLY recommend Michels & Lundquist and Mr. Webster.”
