Dora's Final Expenses

This past Saturday on June 17th we lost an incredible woman to an awful accident. She and her family were setting up for a garage sale when a car, driven by a family member, lost control and struck her. She was taken to Cottage Hospital but unfortunately, nothing could be done to save her.
Dora was a local Carpinterian who was always trying to find a way to help others without expecting anything in return.  She was a longtime employee of the local Rite Aid who always greeted and made friends at her workplace.  We are deeply saddened by the loss of an extraordinary and selfless woman. She was a fighter and single mother, after losing her husband years ago, and is survived by her only son, Izzy. Not only was she an amazing mother and sister but also a great friend to many. Her son Israel or better known as Izzy has been working at the Carpinteria Ark Pet Shop for many years, he is appreciated and helpful towards any customer that walks in. His cheerful personality is well known and contagious amongst the community. It is very upsetting to see this happen to such a person. 
Because of this unexpected tragedy, Dora’s family is now facing financial struggles. This has been a very tough time for her family, anything you can contribute will be greatly appreciated. The money raised on Dora’s behalf will be used to pay for any and all unpaid bills along with funeral expenses. We would like for the family to be able to mourn Dora respectfully so that her spirit can be at peace.
