Summer Raffo died of injuries sustained in a March 2014 mudslide in Oso, Wash.
Summer Raffo, of Darrington, got married two years ago. She worked as a custodian at Darrington High School and as a farrier on the side. She was driving on Highway 530, headed to a horseshoeing appointment, when the mudslide hit. She was fifth in a line of 13 children, who were hard to miss in a small logging town, said husband Joel Sundstrom.
Brother Dayn Brunner said she was the type of person everybody in Darrington knew. She checked her phone and talked on it religiously to keep up with a wide circle of friends and family. She was on the phone with her mother just before heading out that morning.
