McGough Funeral Fundraiser

$2,718 of $4,000 goal

Raised by 92 people in 9 months
Created March 29, 2018
Our Mother and Sister died in a tragic car accident the morning of March 29,2018. My sister only being 29 years old did not have any life insurance. We are asking for any donations to help bury them in the same cemetery and making sure their wishes are met. This is not the first time our family has seen tragedy. We were removed from our mothers care by the state of Michigan and spent ten years in foster care, after which we reunited with our mother and siblings. With that being said we do not have the average American family stature to make sure that our mother and sister are buried. Our mother and sister leave behind Karlos, Alex (AD), and Timothy as well as grandchildren, nieces, and nephews. We lost our family unit once when we were taken into foster care and we have spent the last 8 to 10 years trying to rebuild our broken family. This is devastating to us to not only lose our mother but our sister who raised us and acted as a second mother, essentially losing the two people who taught us to be who we are. If you are able to donate anything it would be greatly appreciated so that we are able to give our mother and sister a proper burial. If you have any questions about what happened, the local news has covered the story and I will attach the link. I will attach my phone number (206-747-3003) as well if you have any further questions. Thank you all and remember to tell your loved ones that you love them.

Hello everyone,

Unfortunately the insurance policy for Mia fell through and we are no longer able to afford a funeral. Meaning the funeral for Tuesday April 10, 2018 has been cancelled. We are, instead, trying to have Mia and Jatia cremated. Once we have more information we will send out another update. Thank you all for all your thoughts and prayers.

Thanks everyone for your donations. We have been able to get the funeral for Mia covered but we are still in need of more donations to bury Jatia. Our goal is to raise $2500 by Friday or her body will go back to the city for them to bury her in a city plot. We want to bury our family together. Any donations will help us with this so please spread the word and share and/or donate.

The funeral for my sister and mother will be held at 18957 W Warren Detroit. The service will be at 12:30pm on Tuesday April 10th.
