 LENEXA, KS
Nicole Siegrist, also known as Denalda Nicole Renae, is among the missing in the Oakland Ghostship fire that occurred late Friday night on December 2, 2016. Carol Cidlik, Nicole's mother, is currently in Oakland, CA awaiting news and working with authorities to find Nicole. Any assistance would be apprieciated to help with the cost of staying in Oakland as Carol does not live in the area. As well as any future expenses Carol may incur in dealing with this tradegy.

My name is Chelsea Wittwer and I currently live in the Kansas City area. Carol is one of my mom's very best friends.  Carol,  her daughter Nicole, myself and mother are all originally from Nebraska. Carol and my mom went to school together. Nicole grew up and went to school in Lincoln, NE. Nicole and Carol were like a part of the family, as they always came back to our small town during the holidays and joined us in celebrating.

This money is intented for Carol to use while she stays Oakland (lodging, food, travel), as she now lives in Hawaii and is unable to work while back on the mainland. Any additional money may be used for any future expenses Carol may incur during this tradegy. Please consider donating to this cause.

From Carol's Facebook update:
"A huge big thanks goes out to every single person that has taken their time to reach out to me regarding this horrible senseless tragedy in Oakland at the Ghost Ship warehouse where 36 victims perished. My daughter Nicole is no longer missing and has been identified. God rest her soul and her very best friend (band member singer)Ben Runnels are angels together and her roommate Donna Kellogg. The circle of 7 friends that planned, met up, gathered at Ghost Ship to have fun, dancing,supporting another band, had no fear. Of those 7, 3 made it out of that burning bldg. A forever life changing event. Prayers for all. We are supporting each other. Love to all"

Although I never met Nicole, I have heard the most amazing things about her from her mom Carol...I met Carol almost ten years ago in Chicago at a blues fest - we connected, and have stayed in touch ever since. I had always hoped to have met Nicole as Carol and I have talked a few times about her traveling to Florida or NY where I lived at the time with Nicole. From everything Carol has told me about her daughter, and from seeing her pictures, she was a beautiful woman with tons of talent who will be sorely missed.

I met Denalda at a house show and she invited me to an animation showcase at YBCA the following week. In those two brief encounters I was still floored by her openness, empathy, and creativity. All the love in the world to you in this difficult time.
