Sara Beth Stelzer, 18, of Moorpark, California died suddenly on Oct. 17, 2014 as a result of bacterial meningitis. She was born May 10, 1996 in Valencia, California. She graduated from Moorpark High School in 2014 where she was one of the Moorpark Musketeer Mascots, an active member of the Youth in Government, played soccer and basketball, and traveled to Peru and Costa Rica to volunteer with Global Leadership Adventures. Sara attended San Diego State University as a freshman, majoring in Public Relations, and was a new member of Kappa Delta sorority. Sara is survived by her parents Greg and Laurie Stelzer and her sisters, Audrey and Shannon. She also leaves her maternal grandparents, Bill and Judy Bowman of Camarillo, and a very large, loving circle of extended family and friends.
