The family of the 25-year-old New Canaan woman who died Monday night after a fall at Stamford Town Center remember her as a warm and kind person.

Lindsey Reiniger attended West Elementary School in New Canaan as a youngster and then Rippowam in Stamford, according to her grandfather, town resident Lance Minor.

“She was a wonderful, loving person,” Minor said.

Reiniger had been studying nursing at Norwalk Community College, he said.

She died at Stamford Hospital after falling six levels off of a level-9 escalator, according to Stamford Police Capt. Richard Conklin. Witnesses reported that shortly after 6 p.m., she put a leg over the escalator and appeared undecided for a while, then threw her own body over, Conklin said.

A memorial service is scheduled for 10 a.m. on Saturday, Jan. 17 at Stanwich Congregational Church in Greenwich.
