A Lisle woman is presumed dead following a Colorado rafting incident.
Appelson's body had not been found as of Monday, and recovery efforts were suspended for a few weeks until the water flow drops, the newspaper reported.
Appelson, who was a raft guide, is being mourned by her local friends and family, including 200 people who filled a Naperville church Sunday for a tribute.
Officials said Appelson was wearing a life vest but not a helmet during the off-duty excursion, the Daily Herald reported.
Tributes to Appelson are popping up online, including a Facebook tribute page and a YouTube video (below).
