January 21, 2017


Karhla Rey (Pitsch) Sullivan went to be with her Heavenly Father, Saturday January 21st, 2017 at the young age of 57. She was lifted to Heaven peacefully, on angel’s wings from her home in Worland, WY.

On February 1st, 1959 in Hardin Montana, Andrew and Bonnie Pitsch were blessed with their second child, Karhla Rey. She had the most beautiful brown eyes, olive skin and joyful spirit.

Karhla attended school in various locations including Montana, California and Wyoming. She graduated from Worland High School in 1977. From this point forward, Karhla called Worland her home.

Karhla met the love of her life, Kerr Patrick Sullivan shortly after she moved from California in 1975. They fell in love instantly and married on December 4th, 1976. From that union of marriage, Pat and Karhla had two beautiful daughters, Keristyn and Kelci.

After raising her children, Karhla worked at Hart’s clothing store for a short amount of time. She then started Bonny Realty with her best friend and Mom, Bonnie Pitsch. She was a successful real estate broker in Worland for 20+ years and loved finding homes for her friends in the community. After retirement from Bonny Realty, she enjoyed traveling, spending time with her grandchildren, listening to music, gardening, and decorating her home.

She is preceded in death by her husband of 40 years, Kerr Patrick Sullivan. Her parents, Andrew and Bonnie Pitsch, and her brother, Kurtis Pitsch.

She is survived by her daughters Keristyn Jo Carrell (Daylen) and Kelci Jona Zimmerman (Ed). Her grandchildren Canyon and Rivers (Carrell), Creedon and Bronson (Newell), Camden, Brennan, Tristan, Tanner, and Tatum Zimmerman.

Karhla loved her family and friends more than life itself. Karhla was an amazing, caring mother, and always put her family and children first. She will always be remembered by her beautiful smile and her heartfelt laughter.

A Celebration of Life will be held Thursday, January 26th, 2017 at the First Baptist Church at 5:30 pm.
