Kara Klinger, 41, passed away Friday, Dec 6, 2019, in Virginia Beach. Born in Portsmouth, she was a far too young.

Kara was kind, quirky, quick-witted, creative and had the most amazing sense of humor. She was never one to shy away from a good thrill; such as, a rollercoaster or jumping out of a plane. She was a friend to all who knew her, and mostly to her furry rascals. Kara’s generosity was without bounds, taking in countless pets in need; only matched by her incredible ability to find the perfect gift. She was an avid sports fan who was dedicated to Duke basketball.

Kara is survived by her partner, Dana Pelland; best friend, Gil Bantay; cats and dogs; sister, Laura Bonenfant, and her husband, Norm; mother, Brenda Taylor; father, Kenneth Klinger; brother, Kody Klinger; sister, Melissa Klinger; nieces and nephews; and countless members of her gym family, who she loved dearly.

We will celebrate Kara’s life at 7 p.m., Wednesday, Dec. 11, at Altmeyer Funeral Home, 5033 Rouse Drive, Virginia Beach.

Flowers are welcome and may be sent to the funeral home and/or donations for the continued care of her cats may be made to Kara’s Kats.
