In Loving Memory of Mattea Jace Somerville

With a tremendous amount of heartache, we mourn the loss of twelve-year-old Mattea Jace Somerville of Guelph, ON. Beloved little ray of sunshine to parents Michelle & Jake Somerville, fiercely protective older sister to Dash, joyous first born granddaughter to Doreen Roussy and loving & loyal friend to so many. She was a passionate animal lover and an old soul. Sensitive, thoughtful and kind. Many remarked on her clever sense of humour, brave activism in the community & tender heart. To know her was to love her.
Mattea's passing was very sudden & unexpected. She kissed her family goodnight as she always did and was discovered unresponsive the following day. She was healthy and there were no warning signs. The whole family is in utter shock and grieving an unbelievably heavy loss while awaiting answers. Her extended family have started this Go Fund Me to cover the unforeseen costs of a funeral and the many other ancillary expenses of grieving that so often get overlooked.
I hope you will join us in supporting this beautiful family by donating whatever you can, re-sharing this link and sharing your fondest memories & photos of Mattea with them below. We cannot thank you enough for your support <3
