Battalion Chief Karen Shubin’s motto was: “It’s all good.” Even in difficult times, she looked for the positive in everything. While in college, she worked for Davis City Fire Department and during the summer season for CDF – the start of a 29-year career with CAL FIRE. A role model and an advocate for many, she was tenacious with a strong character. She had an unending devotion to her family, always had a story to tell and never met a stranger. Her greatest accomplishment was a happy marriage and four wonderful children. Karen Shubin succumbed earlier this year to job-related cancer.
