A 95-year-old Hellam Township woman froze to death outside her home last month, York County Coroner Pam Gay confirmed.

Alverta G. Taylor, of Claire Avenue, succumbed to hypothermia, according to Gay, who has ruled the Jan. 23 death accidental.

Taylor walked outside and apparently fell, the coroner said.

The day she died, York County's high temperature was 19 degrees and its low was minus 10 degrees, according to the National Weather Service.

Taylor is the only person in York County to die of hypothermia so far this year, according to the coroner's office.

The last hypothermia death in York County was in 2006, according to coroner records.
