Today, November 12, 2011, marks seven years since the passing of the lovingly remembered Katrina “Katie” Froeschle. Earlier this week, the American Association of Public Insurance Adjusters sent a call out to remember Katie Froeschle and support her foundation:
The American Association of Public Insurance Adjusters "AAPIA" would like to announce its support for the Katie Froeschle Foundation.
Katie, a 2002 graduate of Florida State University, loved scuba diving, snow skiing, basketball, softball, and cooking. She played powder puff football, enjoyed deep sea fishing, and loved to spend time on the beach. Katie loved animals, particularly her pets, and had cats and loved dogs. After graduation, Katie was employed first by State Farm Insurance as an agent trainee, then by Travelers’ Insurance in an administrative position, and finally by Florida Farm Bureau Insurance Company as a claims adjuster. On November 12, 2004, Katie was murdered while adjusting a hurricane claim at a rental property in Tampa, Florida for her employer. The Katie Froeschle Foundation was started in her memory to provide strong and unwavering support throughout the community. The Katie Froeschle Foundation gives hope to many by awarding scholarships to deserving students at Florida State University, funding innovative programs that distinguish Florida State as an exceptional institution, and providing grants to organizations that offer support and counseling to families coping with the traumatic loss of a loved one. Donations can be made to the Katie Froeschle Foundation by visiting www.katiefoundation.org or by mailing them to:
The Katie Froeschle Foundation, Inc.
343 2nd Ave. N.
St. Petersburg, FL 33715
We sincerely thank you for your time and continued support of this cause and urge all AAPIA Members to honor Katie tomorrow with a silent prayer in remembrance of Katrina "Katie" Froeschle.
The American Association of Public Insurance Adjusters has dedicated a special site on our web site asking our members and policyholders to remember Katie with a check that will help her Foundation continue to help others who are in need of compassion and understanding.
AAPIA will honor Katie in an upcoming Safety Manual due out December 2011.
Best in life,
