Ciara

Ciara Hasselman was lost on October 15, 2016. She is forever 17. She was hit and killed by a train in Plum Borough, Pennsylvania while wearing her headphones.



“She left behind a family who loved her, including her twin brother, a posse of friends and a community that was devastated by her loss. Her catch phrase to all was “hey beautiful”. She was my sassy, loving, giving, firecracker who had such dreams ofย where she was going. My heart breaks to see the other Angels she has joined in this heartbreaking family.

She was on her usual jogging path with her ear buds in, went on to the tracks briefly to avoid a section of flooded path and that was all it took. The noise from the nearby turnpike and the ear buds made it impossible to hear when the train signaled her.”
