Victim In Nat’l Park Shooting Grew Up In Westfield [VIDEO]

 

Margaret Anderson
Mount Rainier National Park

Hours before park ranger Margaret Anderson was killed at Mount Rainier National Park in Washington, her father gave a sermon in New Jersey on dealing with adversity.

The 34-year-old Anderson graduated from New Jersey’s Westfield High School in 1995. The principal there says he was in the marching band and on the volleyball team and was committed to serving others.

Her parents still live in the area and her father, the Rev. Paul Kritsch, is pastor at Redeemer Lutheran Church.

Roger Borchin, the former director of the Redeemer Lutheran Church elementary school, tells The Star-Ledger that Anderson was a sincere person.

She was married to another park ranger. The couple had two young children.

The body of the suspected gunman, Benjamin Colton Barnes, was found Monday in the park.
