Karen Marie Shry

November 29, 1958 — March 12, 2022

On March 12, 2022, we said goodbye to Karen, a great wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, and friend. Karen was honest (sometimes to a fault,) unwavering in her loyalty, strong in her conviction and faith. Karen always put others ahead of herself. Her grandchildren were her greatest joy. She will be greatly missed. Karen was born in Cambridge, MA on November 29, 1958 to Joan (Saraceno) Hayward, and Floyd “Bud” Hayward Jr.
Karen is survived by her loving husband, Jim Shry of Cortez, CO; her children, Greg Hayward Prescott of Durango, CO, Michael Robert Prescott (Samantha) of Durango, CO, Curtis Martin Shry (Andrea) of Cortez, CO, Erica Jean Shry (fiancé Henry) of Aztec, NM; her sisters, Kelley Holston (Michael) of Westford, MA, Debra Warwick (Ted) of Plant City, FL; her niece and nephew, Kevin Michael Holston and Lyndsey Taylor Holston of Westford, MA; her grandchildren, Chance, Logan, Johnathan, Raeja, Scarlett, Paisley, Alexis, Kiara, J.J., and Hank; her one great granddaughter, Jerzie; and numerous nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, and cousins.
Karen was preceded in death by her parents; infant brother, Kevin; and her in-laws, Frank and Mary Shry.
Services will be held April 30, 2022, at 10:00 a.m. at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, 26525 County Rd M, Cortez, CO with internment immediately following at Cortez Cemetery.
