Our thoughts and prayers go out to her family and friends.
Class of 2010 graduate, played volleyball and softball throughout her time at Amherst and was an assistant coach to Mike Chatelle for girls varsity softball. She was a teacher at Saint Benedicts School and loved by many! She will be greatly missed! A beautiful soul.
I was so so sorry to hear this terrible news. My heart breaks for the family. Kara was a great kid attending ACHS and returned to her alma mater to coach. She will be missed by everyone especially her students at St. Benedict’s. May she R.I.P. I will remember you always.
