Dear Norm,

I have been thinking about Karyl and you for a few days and decided to contact you. I was saddened to learn of Karyl's death. I have wonderful memories of Karyl at Martha Cook in Ann Arbor. I also recall the lovely time I had with you both in Seattle and Iowa City. My deepest sympathy to you. Nancy Sisty LePeau

I am saddened to learn of Karyl's passing. As a grad student working in history under Bob Burke I saw a lot of Karyl and Rich Berner in the UW Library's manuscript division. It was always a pleasure working with Karyl in those decades past. She was always friendly, helpful and encouraging. She contributed a great deal to the reputation of the library as a research source. My belated sympathy and condolences.

Hello Norm,
It is only today that I have heard about Karyl's passing. My heartfelt condolences to you. Many years ago I snowshoed with you both.

So sorry for your loss, Norm....I have many fond memories of clambering around the mountains with you two.

Goodbye to a bright star,

Roger and I will miss Karyl so much. In her capacity as UW archivist, she helped Roger find and preserve historical records of the environmental movement in this state, including legal cases and activists who promoted protections through the law. For me, Karyl was a warm and gracious friend. We send our condolences to Norm and their family.
