So very sad  :'(
Does anyone know if her allergic reaction was to a food, insect, medication or . . .?

It hasn't been publically stated by the family, though in another source, she is identified as being peanut allergic.  No mention of other allergies.

Here's a link to a thread in schools where I posted that there was a note in the online guestbook to her obit indicating she had asthma and peanut allergy.

What that can mean for others is very scary!  How do you know?
