Willadsen Family Recovery Effort

Originally this fund was set up by Avondale Residents and friends to support the three families impacted by the April 12th fire on Lakeshore Drive. Mother and wife Tami Willadsen, and daughter Jess lost their lives in the fire. They were survived by husband Dave with minor burns, and son Jack, who sustained major burns. Jack is currently at a local area hospital. Other than the loss of the family cat, Chika, there were no other injuries. The Willadsen home was completely destroyed, as well personal belongings, autos, and Dave's business equipment for the business he ran out of his home. The community had asked that donations be made to assist the three families as they struggle through this difficult time. Since then, the families on each side of the Willadsen household have graciously waived their rights to any of the funds so all the funds could be used for the Willadsen family recovery. A Willadsen family representative was asked to take over as administrator of this webpage and fund.  Please share the page with Avondale residents and Museum School parents, as well with friends of the Willadsen family.  

Thank you for your generous donations. The outpouring of love and support has been comforting. A special thanks goes out to the Avondale Estates Community.
