Karin Elizabeth Nyman
June 1975 – January 2021
In the early hours of Saturday January 30th, 2021, Karin Elizabeth Nyman was called to Heaven peacefully in her sleep. Karin was born on a sunny day in June of 1975 to Loren and Linda Nyman. From that day forward, she brought nothing but joy, happiness and sunshine into her family and friends lives and anyone she met.
Karin grew up in the country just outside of Turlock, CA. She quickly became a lover of animals, especially Jersey dairy cows. Her father Loren Nyman, being a local FFA teacher, helped Karin and her sister Christine to become very accomplished in dairy cattle showmanship. Karin’s mother Linda was always supportive and was willing to put up with all the animals and even cows in the backyard. Karin was very studious, always a quiet, determined achiever. She attended Turlock High, graduated from Hughson High and then was off to San Francisco State University for her undergraduate studies.
Karin decided to take a break from her studies in San Francisco and moved to Kirkwood, CA with a two-wheel drive car and no idea about the “Mountain Life”. With the heart of a lion and unrelenting determination, Karin decided to live life to its fullest! She traveled, snowboarded unnamed peaks, chased her dreams, worked hard, met and fell in love with her husband of 17 years, Zole Andahazy, and finally started the family she always wanted.
Karin devoted the rest of her life to being an amazing mother to Silas and her second son Jonas. Karin faced and overcame many challenges including horrible car accidents and many health struggles. She lived in Reno, Carmel Valley and eventually settled with her family in Turlock.
Karin was known for being an amazing friend and having epic pool parties where there was always great food, cold drink and sometimes swimming with chickens……
Karin will be dearly missed by her friends and family.
Karin is survived by her husband Zole Andahazy and their sons Silas and Jonas; mother Linda Nyman, sister Christine Maffei (Craig), niece & nephew Olivia and Nick, and her loving aunts, uncles and cousins. Karin is preceded in death by her father Loren Nyman, grandparents Martin & Olivia Nyman and Rudy & Opal Manske and aunt and uncles Marjorie & Richard Nystrom, Delton Nyman and Lavonne & Fred Wingett.
