Grand Junction woman Karen Berryman, known for her extensive community involvement, died Friday afternoon.
She was 53.
Rotary Club president Dale Beede said Berryman, a longtime member of the Rotary, was an “active member” and a “person who gave and never asked for a thing.”
“Of about 150 members of the club, we all cared about and loved Karen,” Beede said. “She was wonderful to us and wonderful to the community. There’s a lot of people who are hurting today.”
She had been a member of the service club since 1994 and had served as the president of Roice-Hurst Humane Society.
