Help The Kappeler Family

Donation protected
Saturday, February 17th stared as any normal day. My cousin Teelah has just began her new part-time job working for the USPS and was a few days into her new route. Unfortunately, she did not return from her route that evening and that is when my cousin Mark received a call from one of her fellow co-workers.

Below is the the official news article ( with details as to her accident.

U.S. Postal Service employees say Kappeler made her last delivery Saturday around 3:15 p.m. in Switzerland County, Indiana. Authorities say she was driving a white 1994 Suzuki Sidekick, which was her personal vehicle.

Officials conducted a search in Milton Township in Jefferson County. On Saturday just after 10 p.m., the Jefferson County Central dispatch received a call that Kappeler's vehicle was found flipped over partially submerged in a creek on East Little Brushy Fork Road.

Police say an officer responded to the scene and entered the water, where he found Kappeler's body inside the vehicle and pulled her to shore. Kappeler was pronounced dead at the scene by the Jefferson County Coroner. An official cause of death is pending.

According to police, evidence at the scene shows Kappeler's vehicle was traveling west on East Little Brushy Fork Road when, for some unknown reason, the vehicle went off the south side of the road. The vehicle rolled over a concrete culvert and landed in the creek.


We, along with Teelah's family are putting together this page to help support her Husband Mark to help both him and his family with their new transition. Teelah leave's behind her Husband Mark, her daughter Ariana (9) and Liara (1).
Her full obituary can be read here-
