PRESCOTT, Ariz. (AP) - The family of a Prescott woman killed by Islamic State militants wants her to be remembered for her commitment to serving the vulnerable.

Kayla Muller died a year ago this week. She had been taken by the militant group in August 2013 after leaving a hospital in Aleppo, Syria.

Her family says she had a special mind and heart to see the many forms of suffering and to find a way to help.

A foundation has been created to honor Mueller, and the Kiwanis Club of Prescott is building a playground in her name. Northern Arizona University also established a scholarship in Mueller’s name.

Her family says people should keep in mind lives lost to terrorism, the missing and those held against their will.
