Ethiopian Plane Crash takes one of our own

https://www.mundellfuneralhome.com/notices/Angela-Rehhorn?fbclid=IwAR2FaGhTomh-dfD9QDMozAvzTRVPKr20IujJIxGtMTFHSr1gRSwiPFWZhkw

A lot of our families may not know our swimmer Angela Rehhorn 24, who tragically lost her life in the Ethiopian flight plane crash. Angela was a great team member, who loved being with her team, was a positive role model for our younger swimmers, was willing to step out of her comfort zone daily, was beautiful to watch race butterfly, had a big sense of adventure- often being a tad mischievous and always had a smile on her face. We have lost a family member far too young, its devastating. Please take time to pause and realize how precious life is. Angela we love and miss you.
