FAIRFIELD, Conn. Karen Mary Krozier Lazowski of Fairfield died Aug. 25. She was 63.
Born Nov. 6, 1948, in Bridgeport, Lazowski was a lifelong Fairfield resident. She graduated from Sacred Heart University in 1970 and received a master's degree from Fairfield University in 1974. She was married to John Lazowski.

She retired after 15 years to help care for her grandchildren. She liked to cook and sew, and especially enjoyed local history, participating in Colonial period re-enactments at the Ogden House, Holland Hill School and other venues.
Lazowski is survived by her husband; two daughters, MaryAnn (Scott) Petrone and Catherine (Giovanni) Correa, both of Fairfield; and two grandchildren.
