Autumn graduated with the Class of 2013 at West Carteret High School. As a talented flutist, she excelled during her 7 years of playing. She enjoyed being in the West Carteret High School Band and was also a member of a community band where she was able to express her gift of music.  Autumn was known as a generous and outgoing young lady. Her joyful spirit was felt by all around her, whether while at work at Chic-Fil-A or at her church, Praise International in Havelock, where she  attended regularly.
