DENVER -- Former Denver newspaper columnist Penny Parker died Saturday at her Denver condominium. She was 62.

The cause of death has not been determined.

Friends, colleagues and family members took to her Facebook page to offer condolences after news of her death was announced Sunday night.

Parker was a features reporter in the 1990s at the Denver Post before joining the business department. She left for the Rocky Mountain News and wrote the "On the Town" column about social events and people in the city.

After the Rocky Mountain News was closed in 2009, Parker was one of a handful of reporters to join the Post, where she worked as a business columnist until 2012.

Parker wrote about her breast cancer diagnosis and recovery 10 years ago.

On Friday, in what was her last post on Facebook, Parker wrote: "Wow! Starting another year. Do you have plans? Not sure my path this year, but I will take one step at a time."

She is survived by her husband Greg Henry and her son Mackenzie. Services are pending.
