Dover, Delaware – The unexpected passing of Caitlynn Mitchell on Tuesday, September 5, 2023, has left her family and community in deep sorrow. Caitlynn was a remarkable individual who made significant contributions in the field of Marine Science and was deeply passionate about environmental conservation.

Caitlynn was a graduate of the University of Delaware, where she earned her bachelor’s degree in Marine Science.

Tragically, Caitlynn’s life was cut short at the age of 25 in a four-car crash that occurred on Tuesday, September 6, 2023, in Kent County.

A Silverado, driven by a 32-year-old Smyrna man, collided with the back of her vehicle, resulting in a devastating chain reaction.
