Woman's Husband Died In 2003 From Heart Attack
POSTED: 3:45 pm EDT July 2, 2004
UPDATED: 4:00 pm EDT July 2, 2004
A secretary at Andover High School died from a peanut allergy, according to the Oakland County Medical Examiner's report.
Officials ruled that the death of Amy Topic, 34, was caused by an accidental ingestion of peanuts, The Daily Oakland Press reported.
Topic, a mother and popular secretary at the school, died on May 29, according to the paper.
Her husband, Andrew, an English teacher at Andover, died in September 2003 of a heart attack, the paper reported.
The couple left behind a 3-year-old son.
Topic knew that she was allergic to peanuts, but apparently did not know she had ingested peanuts or peanut products, a doctor told the paper.
Her official cause of death is listed as an anaphylactic reaction.
My heart goes out to the little boy.
