Camilla, Rainie & Abbie College Fund

Update: On May 21, 2023, my dear sister Penny lost her battle at 4:05pm. She leaves behind two beautiful daughters Abbie and Rainie in addition to her surviving daughter Chelsea and three grandchildren. To help support Penny’s family during this difficult time, we have updated our Gofund to help support the surviving members of Penny’s precious family.

Hi, my name is Melissa Dennis and I want to tell you of a tragic night in Kansas City, KS that took the life of a beautiful mother, loving daughter and my niece Kristy Thow, 29 of Shawnee, KS last Thusday May 18th, 2023
Kristy was shot multiple times protecting the life of her sister and her mom, my sister, from a crazed domestic abuser. My sister, Penny, and Kristy's little sister, both are fighting for their lives in the hospital as I write this heart wrenching story.
Kristy is survived by her daughter Camilla. Kristy was a single mom. raising Camilla and helping raise her sisters children. She had a heart of gold and lived life to the fullest! She will be missed.
We are asking for your kindness to help Camilla with college and insure she can live her life as comfortably as possible. My heart is broken knowing she will never have her mom to guide her, provide for her or hold her ever again.
