"Finding herself stretched in ways she didn't know was possible, Christy now understands her monk vows in a entirely new way," her profile states. "It's no longer a good idea to 'save all sentient beings' but her responsibility to try to do as much as possible to make this world a kinder, gentler place for our sons and daughters to be in."
In addition to her daughter, Svanemyr leaves her husband, Vegar Svanemyr.
Several Bernal Heights residents said Thursday there is a gardener who they've seen driving recklessly before at Holly Park, a popular space frequented by dog owners and their pets. It was unclear if that gardener is Burnoski.
The San Francisco Police Department said Friday that an investigation into Svanemyr's death continues. Sarah Ballard, a spokeswoman for the recreation and parks department, said Burnoski has been placed on administrative leave without pay, pending the investigation.
Ballard said she wouldn't comment on an open investigation, but said the department's vehicle policy is that workers are never allowed to drive on park pathways, sidewalks, closed roads or the actual park area "merely for convenience purposes."
"If work requirements necessitate operating a city vehicle on a park-scape or other surface not designed for vehicle operation, utilize a staff person outside the vehicle to serve as a safety watch or otherwise guide vehicle movement," the policy reads.
One complaint on Parkscan.org, a website that allows residents to submit park observations to the city, noted that the drivers routinely used the pedestrian paths.
"Some of the workers drive far too fast for safety under these conditions," the complaint states.
