Zoe Hastings, 18, was an outstanding young woman on the cusp of starting her life. She was loving, kind, hard working and full of life. A graduate of Booker T. Washington and preparing to go on her mission, she was on her way to an evening church service when she went missing. After a frantic search, Zoe was found mudered in a creekbed by her church.
Her life was cut short on October 12, 2015 by an unspeakable tragedy. She was the oldest of five children - with three little sisters and a brother who adored her. Zoe's parents, Cheryl, a nurse, and Jim, a teacher, loved and adored their oldest child beyond words, and were so proud of her accomplishments.
Should you wish to support The Hastings family as they grieve, and to allow them to stay close with their family during this sensitive time, please give here.
Your prayers and well wishes are very appreciated.
For reference, Zoe was the beautiful niece of my sister and brother-in-law. I asked Zoe's parents if I could create this page to support them in their time of need. The money raised here will go toward helping the family replace the family vehicle that was destroyed in the tragedy, pay for funeral and burial costs, as well as housing and general support for Zoe's parents and four siblings. The money will be given directly to Zoe's parents as a gift to the family and no further . I had the wonderful pleasure of watching Zoe grow into a fabulous young woman and my family and I will miss her terribly.
