Karen Adams Obituary

Bernardston, MA - Karen Ruth Adams, 69, passed away on January 21, 2024, in Bernardston, MA. She was born on February 20, 1954, in Rochester, NY. Karen was a beloved mother, grandmother, sister, and friend.

Karen's growth game was strong and best captured in her work with trauma survivors. She dedicated her career to community acupuncture, providing compassionate care to those in need. Her work with Veterans, using acupuncture to promote healing, was a source of joy and grace for her.

The Chinese Green Dragon is the guardian spirit of the East. It represents birth and re-birth, growth, strength, awakenings... and hope. It is benevolent, offering compassion and open hearts and hands to others. It was the symbol of her clinic - and of her patients who strive to grow stronger, who wish to be of service to others, and who hope, always hope.

In addition to her dedication to her career, Karen had a passion for gardening and music. She found joy in tending to her garden, cultivating beautiful blooms and nurturing life. Music was another avenue through which she expressed her creativity and found solace.

Karen is survived by her loving daughters, Kirsten Bergstrom and Meghann (Josh) Parkinson, as well as her cherished grandchildren, Zoe and Jack Parkinson. She is also survived by her brothers, David and Tom Adams, and her extended family, including Mike Conrad, Josh (Heather) Adams, Carmen (Leo) Paparelli, and Rigel Spencer Massaro. Karen was preceded in death by her mother, Ann Conrad, and her daughter, Faith Bergstrom.

A celebration of Karen's life will be held in the spring, with details to be provided at a later date. Her Caring Bridge page will remain open and the date of service will be announced there. In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made in her memory to Freedom Alliance at , an organization close to her heart.

Karen will be remembered for her unwavering compassion, her dedication to helping others, and her love for her family. She leaves behind a legacy of growth, strength, and hope, which will continue to inspire all those who had the privilege of knowing her.
