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

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. ”
