Smedinghoff, 25, was killed by a bomb last Saturday in Afghanistan while riding in a convoy with four other Americans to deliver books to children. Smedinghoff worked in the U.S. Foreign Service.
Anne’s older brother and sister, as well as their aunt, attended today’s memorial service.
Her former AP Spanish teacher, Irene Drago, spoke about how Anne Smedinghoff inspired her. And Fenwick administrator Dr. Gerald Lordan spoke about how Anne took her ordinary gifts and did extraordinary things with them.
Students who never met Anne said they are inspired by her legacy.
Funeral services are pending.
