In Support of the Bonchek Family

Lindsey Bonchek was a young, single mother of three amazing children. Tragically, she died this morning in a house fire, along with her daughter, Madeline (9) and son, Jackson (4).

Lindsey will be terribly missed by her family; remembered as a devoted mother who did what she could with what she had for her children. Madeline was a bright star and mathlete, who adored her youngest brother, Jack

Amidst this tragedy, Lindsey leaves behind her teenage son, Ben, who has been identified as having special needs. Ben has been left alone, with only the shirt on his back, and will require some form of care for the rest of his life.

We ask that you please consider making a small donation to help cover funeral costs, as Lindsey and her children were reliant on social assistance.  

Any funds remaining will be provided to Ben and his caretakers to help rebuild his life and provide necessary supports for his wellbeing.

Thank you for your thoughts & prayers at this very sad time.

On behalf of my Uncle Gerry and Aunt Darlin and our entire family, I would like to extend our thanks for the generous donations received via this campaign.

The money raised here is being used to provide for Ben's immediate and long term needs. Your contributions really have changed a young man's life.

Many of you also provided clothing, toys, food and sent your thoughts and prayers - all of which has helped a family cope during an extremely difficult time. It is hard to truly convey the impact of your support. Thank you.

Thank you all for your kind words and for your generous donations. Our family feels very blessed to have such a wonderful community of support around them at this time.

For those who have been asking, a visitation for the public will be held Wednesday at the Oshawa Funeral Home (at King and Thornton) from 1-4pm to honour Lindsey, Maddie and Jack.

A private funeral for family only will be held at a later time.

Thank you

Thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts for your thoughts & donations thus far. This really is a situation where every penny counts and is so very much appreciated. Lindsey's parents and siblings are so grateful to the community for the outpouring of support.

I want to flag that we are aware of a simultaneous fundraiser for the Bonchek family, which is specifically fundraising to provide financial assistance to Ben in the coming days. I have been in contact with the organizer, Kathy, who is committed to providing those funds to Ben's guardian.

If anyone has questions or concerns going forward please feel free to message me through this site and I will get back to you ASAP.

I will share funeral arrangements as soon as they are available.

Thank you again xo
