New York Woman Killed by Lion in South Africa 'lived a Life of Adventure'

An American woman who was mauled to death by a lioness in a South Africa game preserve was “brilliant, kind, adventurous and high-spirited”, her family says.
Katherine Chappell’s “energy and passion could not be contained by mere continents or oceans”, the family said in a Facebook posting.
Chappell, 29, grew up in the New York suburbs and a memorial service is scheduled for Saturday in Rye, New York, said Gene Guarino, director of the Graham Funeral Home.
