Whittick, 49, had recent surgery and was on a path to recovery when she succumbed to her ailments, RA CEO Cate Fulkerson said.

A Reston native and South Lakes High School graduate, Whittick began working for Reston Association in June 2007 as a Cluster Outreach Specialist and grew the position and impact to that of a Neighborhood Outreach Specialist , said Fulkerson.

Barbara Ramey, RA Covenants Case Manager and colleague, described Whittick as “a bright, shining personality who will be terribly missed by everyone.  She leaves a hole in the Covenants Department that will be difficult to fill.  We all mourn with her family and friends.”

Fulkerson called Whittick “a true inspiration.”

“As a fellow South Lakes High School graduate and contemporary, I am honored to have known and worked beside her,” said Fulkerson. “She was a true inspiration to me. ”

Cate Fulkerson, the association’s CEO and fellow South Lakes High graduate, also shared her sadness. “I am honored to have known and worked beside her.  She was a true inspiration to me.”
