Grace Berriker, 86, of Murrysville, passed away February 19, 2018.  She was born in 1931, a daughter of Jesse K. and Wilda Baker, in Worthington, Armstrong County, PA. Her career life started in Kittanning, PA as a clerk for G.C. Murphy Co., an operator for Kittanning Telephone, and as bookkeeper for Marshall Farm Equip.  Opportunity arose in 1951 when she moved to Pittsburgh, became a secretary for the American Bible Society, then for the US Steel Corp., and met her husband, Rob Berriker.  Her life as wife and mother was enriched with moving, making new friends, and church fellowship across the country from Virginia, Arizona, Michigan, Connecticut, Nevada, before finally settling in Murrysville.  After marriage, she rekindled her career, and in 1977 she was hired by Carnegie Mellon University, and became the Secretary for ASTM/Test Monitoring Center.  She retired from there in 2001.  Grace also served as the secretary for the Franklin Towne HOA and volunteered her clerical skills at the First United Methodist Church in Murrysville.  Grace loved her family, her church, her friends, and her job at ASTM.  Her wonderful smile will be missed most of all.  She is survived by daughter, Robin Berriker, of Murrysville, seven nieces and two nephews.  In addition to her parents, Grace was preceded in death by a sister, Helen Wiles.
At this time, a memorial service has not been planned.
