Funeral and Memorial Fund

My name is Donna Deflorian and my cousin Sherry  Waller, a  beautiful and loving mother, daughter, auntie, sister, niece, cousin and friend fell victim to domestic violence and has left a void in many lives, including her five children. Sherry was an amazing women with a huge heart! She worked so hard to provide for her children and would stop at nothing to help others. We are now coming together to plan a funeral and the care of her children. Sherry had no life insurance and we never imagined we would be burying her at 34. Her children will need extensive counseling and are essentially starting over with nothing and will be in new homes, the family is doing whatever we can to make everything a smooth transition. Sherry's sister and I will make sure the children are taken care of, we will distribute donations to all the children to ensure their well-being. Her daughters are 14, 12 and 3, her boys are 10 and 7, any donations of any kind are welcome! This money will be used to help her children start over and be provided for. They need clothes,beds, toys, bedding, counseling and so much more. Thanks to a Victim fund in Wisconsin her service was paid for. We will be getting her a headstone this spring with part of the donations. Domestic violence is never okay and it needs to stop, our families and children don't deserve to be losing people this way. Thank you all in advance for the support and condolences!
