On Thursday, October 20th, our dearest and loving daughter, sister, niece, cousin, and friend, Misrach, was found dead on the Princeton University campus after missing nearly a week. There are simply no words that can encapsulate the grief and mourning that such an event has brought to Misrach’s family. She was the best of us; she had the kindest heart, the sharpest mind, and the most considerate soul. To lose her is just heartbreaking.
All who knew her can attest that Misrach was simply a spectacular person. She was always willing to help and went out of her way to lend a hand. She was incredibly generous with her love and her time. When we were down, she lifted our spirits. Misrach was selfless and helped many without expecting a thank you. She was measured with her words, slow to speak, and always willing to listen to you. She never judged anyone and took the time to understand all–she humanized, empathized, and advocated for you. Whether she knew you or not, she greeted you with a warm smile and a gentle hug—her presence was always welcoming and without ill will.
Beyond her impeccable character, Misrach was brilliant. And despite her remarkable natural ability, she never rested on it—she was studious and very disciplined. A valedictorian of her High School, Princeton not only accepted her application for admission but also awarded Misrach a full scholarship. She was a junior Majoring in Sociology with a minor in Computer Science.
There is nothing that can replace the beautiful person that we have lost. Misrach is missed by her loving family, friends, and anyone who knew her.
Due to her sudden death and bizarre circumstances surrounding her passing, we ask family, friends, and anyone aware of her story to support Misrach’s family by assisting with the expenses associated with a funeral, an independent autopsy, and significant travel. Any support you can provide will reduce the burden on Misrach’s family as they attempt to endure this tragedy.
