    Sadly your assumptions are correct. It happened over a week ago. In the 1992 time frame she was a USFSA Nationals Junior Level medalist and trained with Richard Callaghan at Detroit Skating Club. (she may have been the Junior Champion but I'm not sure) She also represented Greece at Worlds about 20 years ago. She coached quite a few skaters that qualified for Jr. National Championships or Novice Nationals. There was a memorial service on July 22nd.
