Services were held Thursday at Saint Elizabeth Seton Catholic Church in Pleasanton for Kaitlyn Mary Oefelein, daughter of Lisa and Joseph Oefelein and a 2012 graduate of Amador Valley High School, who died June 17 at her home in Pleasanton. She was 20 years old.

Her mother, Lisa Oefelein, is a longtime staff member of the Pleasanton Weekly, where she is in charge of accounts, billing and finances.

Kaitlyn was born in State College, Penn., on June 2, 1994. She was most recently a student at Las Positas College and also was an employee of Safeway at the Santa Rita Road supermarket in Pleasanton.

Those who knew her always commented on her sparkling personality. She touched the lives of many people with gentle kindness, compassion and a beautiful smile.

Besides her parents, she is survived by her brother, Andrew Oefelein of Pleasanton, and an extended family of friends and relatives with whom she was very close and loved very much.

Memorial donations may be made to Valley Humane Society, 3670 Nevada St, Pleasanton, CA 94566, where Kaitlyn spent many hours as a volunteer loving and caring for the animals.
