NIBLEY – The principal of Nibley Elementary School has passed away after battling the effects of COVID-19 for nearly five weeks. Kelly Rindlisbacher was an educator in the Cache County School District for many years before becoming a principal.
“The Cache County School District is deeply saddened by the loss of a family member, friend, and fellow educator, Kelly Rindlisbacher, principal of Nibley Elementary School,” the school district stated in a release late Friday. “We want to express our heartfelt sympathy to Kelly’s family, especially his wife, Lori, and their children.
“Kelly was an exceptional, dedicated educator with a long career in our district. He will be greatly missed by his Cache County School District family.”
The Providence resident was in intensive care at Ogden’s McKay-Dee Hospital since early July. It is not believed that he contracted the virus while in any capacity as an educator or administrator.
Rindlisbacher also served previously as a bishop in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and was currently serving as a Stake Clerk in the Providence Stake.
Details of his funeral have not yet been announced.
