Memorial slated for Agoura Hills girl killed in Italy

A memorial will be held Friday for a 12-year-old Agoura Hills girl killed in a car crash in Italy last week.

Alanna Moorman, 12, daughter of Dave and Kristy Moorman, was killed Saturday afternoon in the Puglia region of Italy, where she and a friend were visiting. Alanna was a student at A.E. Wright Middle School in Calabasas. Her father is president of the Las Virgenes Unified School District board.

A public service for Alanna will be held at 6 p.m. Friday at the King Gillette Ranch, 26800 Mulholland Highway in Calabasas.

Teresa Amati, a campus supervisor at Lindero Canyon Middle School in Agoura Hills, also was killed in the accident. Information on her services was not available Tuesday.

Amati’s daughter, Alessandra Amati, 12, also was in the car and suffered broken bones but is expected to recover, said Las Virgenes Superintendent Don Zimring. Alanna and Alessandra were friends.

In lieu of flowers, the Moormans ask people to donate to charities that support schools, or to one of Alanna’s favorite charities, the Valentino Achak Deng Foundation, which raises money and awareness for rebuilding southern Sudanese communities.
