Kathryn “Kitty” O’Farrell was 79 years old. She was hit and killed by a by a car as she was attending a vigil. The vigil she was participating in was because of a death in a car accident also.

Her Neighbors claimed that O’Farrell help get a stop light installed less than a block away for the location of the accident.  Her goal was to slow traffic on El Camino Avenue and Castro. Her daughter, Kelly DeLeon, explained that mother was a vibrant woman. She was very well known and had many friends. DeLeon said she was at the scene of a fatal accident the day before and helped the injured driver who police say was driving while drunk.  She crossed the street during the evening vigil put on by the friends and family of Demaris Ingram who was killed in the accident.

“It tugged at her heart so when she saw them and came to give them flowers,” said DeLeon.

She apparently couldn’t make it across the street because there were too many people.  Neighbors say they tried to get a motorist to slow down but O’Farrell was struck and killed instantly.  The street was also dark because copper thieves had rendered street lights useless.

“My mind was in shock, she was so nice. She always helped people in the neighborhood,” said Anna Cervantes who has lived across from O’Farrell for 35 years.

O’Farrell’s daughter says she had just found out that her kids were paying for a trip to Ireland, and was also celebrating her 43rd anniversary of being together with her long time boyfriend.
