Lynnsey Donald Funeral Expenses
Lynnsey was walking out of the local HyVee when her ex-boyfriend attacked her and took her life. This was all done while her beautiful 7 year old son Ashton was there. Ashton, miraculously, knew to run away and get help. This tragic event occurred in broad daylight in front of many witnesses who were also devastated to see the outcome. Lynnsey was 29 years old and she leaves behind her beautiful son Ashton, her father Steve, her sister Taylor, her step mother Christy, her family in Marion, her grandparents, aunts, uncles, and many cousins and a lot of friends.
Lynnsey was many things to many people. She was a bright light in a dull room. She was the laughter that everyone loved to hear. She was the quiet voice and gentle heart that everyone gravitated towards. She was absolutely gorgeous inside and out. She was a patient and loving mother that any mother would look up to. She was a beautiful soul that loved the Lord.
Lynnsey will be laid to rest by her mother in Fairfield and funeralservices are pending. We however would appreciate any donations to help pay for her burial expenses.
All proceeds left over after funeral expenses will be placed into an account for Ashtons future.
I am filled with so many emotions watching this number raise as quickly as it has! I think i can speak for my entire family on how greatful we are for such loving and caring people willing to help out in this time of need. We will forever be greatfull to each and everyone of you. Thank you and god bless!
I feel so terrible sad for her little boy. I too have a 7 year old son and I can't imagine him seeing that happen to me. No child should witness that and it makes me sick to my stomach he had to witness such a act.
I did not know this family. But this makes me cry for this little boy and his family. I dont understand why some body would be that mean to kill a little boys mother right in front of him. And in front of many other people. My thoughts and prays go out to the little boy and the mom's family
This is terrible! Lynsey was a student of mine at La James. Always so sweet. Very talented and a quick learner. May God comfort all her family and friends during this horrible time.
News of this tragedy breaks my heart! I am thankful that this beautiful young woman knew the Lord and is now rejoicing with the Angels in her heavenly home. I am praying for her precious little boy and all of her family and friends who are devastated by this senseless act. May God be near you all, bringing the comfort, peace and strength that only he can.
Thanks each and every one of you for your thoughts, prayers and kind words. Lynnsey was an amazing person who I know is shining from heaven today watching over her little boy. She would be so appreciative for the outpouring of love from everyone. I know that our family will greatly miss her. Please continue to pray for our sweet Ashton as he will need it for many years to come. He knows mommy is in heaven but it is all a little confusing for a 7 year old.
I can't believe this happened.. I had no clue that things could ever get to this point, I will miss you and I am so sorry.. I can't imagine what Ashton is going through, I am here for the family if anyone needs anything at all.
My prayers and thoughts goes out to this family This is a terrible thing. Why anyone would do such a thing is beyond me. My heart aches for this family
I send my prayers to this beautiful little boy and his family. . may God bless y'all!!! So sorry for your loss and so sorry for her little boy that's just terrible for someone to be so horrible!!! Breaks my heart for you all!!!! God Bless
I'm so very sorry for your loss!!you will be in my prayers and I will donate what I can!
All I can afford to donate right know is my deepest sympathy. This is very tragic and heartbreaking and my thoughts and prayers go out to the family and friends. May angels take her safely "Home".
I was one of the many witnesses at hyvee and my prayers and thoughts go out to you and your family.
I didn't personally know Lynnsey but it is so amazing to see everyone pull together to help this family and sweet Ashton. It's so hard to understand how a person could do this to another human being for any reason. Just know that so many people are thinking of everyone involved and praying for you. We all should do an act kindness everyday for someone in Lynnseys honor. Even saying hello to a stranger that may be having a bad day or opening a door for someone. Lynnseys life was taken by a coward with no respect for life. It will never be understood. Hoping these donations will help ease some of the families pain by not adding extra worry.
This was so sad and unbelievable. Praying for the family.
She was so young I am so sorry for your loss she will be very missed
