The Rotary Club of the Brookfields is very saddened by the passing of Beverly Sawyer of Warren. Bev left us on April 27 after a long and courageous battle with a series of injuries and associated complications. She was a dedicated, long-standing member of Rotary who was loved by all for her kindness, wit, and friendship. There is an empty place in the hearts of her Rotary family.
A graduate of UMass Amherst, Bev taught for many years in the Hampden-Wilbraham Regional School District. For 44 years, she was married to Dr Samuel Sawyer, a dentist and Rotarian, who died on May 4,2016 at age 95. Beverly and Sam served in a couple of Rotary clubs, the Wilbraham Rotary Club and the Rotary Club of the Brookfields. Beverly exemplified the Rotary spirit of "Service Above Self".
This remarkable, gracious, and service oriented lady will be sorely missed in Warren, Wilbraham, and the Rotary community.

"Rotary offers something no other organization can match: an existing infrastructure that allows people from all over the world to connect in a spirit of service and peace and take meaningful action toward that goal."
