I'm sharing this post from Karol's Facebook page for everyone,

It is with great sadness that we share news of the passing of Karol Patzer, due to complications from Ovarian Cancer.

Karol lived her life to the fullest and always greeted you with a glowing smile, and open arms. She will be greatly missed, but we know she's already pursuing her next adventure.

Plans for Karol's service will be announced once we have set a date.

We would love for her friends to share their memories of her through photos and stories on her Facebook page.

As Karol always said, "Ride hard, go far, keep smiling..."
