She was rushed to hospital and placed on life support, but the injuries she sustained were too extensive to survive.

Her family said a “farewell party” would be scheduled separate from the wake and funeral service for her friends and family “to enjoy a celebration of her amazing life . . . for a bright and enjoyable day.”
