She married Adolph “Al” Polstin on June 7, 1947 at St. John's Catholic Church in Benton Harbor. The two were happily married for 41 years until his passing in 1988.
In 1950, she and her husband were blessed with a son, Edward. Besides being a devoted wife and mother. She was a member of St. Joseph Catholic Church and volunteered on many committees. Karin was always up for trying something different whether it was square dancing, bowling, line dancing and especially ushering at the Mendel Center. In the early days she and Al loved camping with her Mom and Dad, and later spending time at their place at Sandy Pines. She was friendly to anyone she met. She loved her Rocky Gap neighborhood and was well known to all who lived in that area.

Karin is survived by her daughter-in-law, Mary Ann (Conrad) Dutra, and leaves behind many longtime friends. She was preceded in death by her parents, husband and son.

We were delighted to get to know Karin when we bought our Rocky Gap home! What a sunny disposition she had, despite the tragedies in her life. I loved that Ed's classmates adopted her, as it gave her so much pleasure to see them all grow up. When they visited her when coming to town, she marveled at how they were getting so "Old"! I remember helping her pick between some pretty ancient bathing suits to wear at a pool party. She made me laugh so much during our visits to Michigan! Karin even loved flirting with one or two male therapists while in rehab during one of her falls! She loved her circle of friends who always included her when attending area concerts. Things won't be quite the same in the neighborhood without her! But, it comforts me to know that she is rejoined with Al and Ed up in Heaven! Love you, Karin!

My Aunt Karin was always the bright spot at any family gathering. She was always so positive even though she had so much tragedy in her life. She was always up to try something new and her life was full of friends and family who loved her. She will be greatly missed by many, but I know she is with the ones she loved. RIP Aunt Karin.

Karin was the such a sweet loving person. She was a very good friend to my mother-in-law Shirley Teed. She was there when Shirley needed her. They are rejoicing, laughing (Karin had a wonderful laugh) and celebrating again. On Karin's laugh. She would start laughing, Did not matter if you new why, but you would just start laughing too. RIP Karin we love you.

I enjoyed our chats when we'd run into each other at the Mendel Center. Such a fun, life loving person. Rest in peace cousin. Hug my Aunt Gladys, Uncle Chuck, Grandpa and Grandma Clark, my mom, my dad, my sister and brothers. Much love and prayers for those left behind.

Chums in the BHHS Class of 1946, friends ever since. There were few trips back to the twin cities that I didn't bump into her and we would pick up right where we left off. She was always so up-beat, wide-eyed and full of joy.. RIP dear Karin.
