The Grand Island community is reeling after the loss of a beloved member of their community. Ashley Schmidt was killed in a motorcycle accident this past weekend and friends and relatives are doing what they can for Ashley’s two children left without their mother.

A Gofundme page has been set up which reads,

“On Sunday we lost a loving family member. Ashley Schmidt died in a motorcycle accident.” “She was the loving mother of Elijah (12) and Raeven (6). We would love to raise funds for her children. Showing our support during this difficult time and in the future will mean the world to Ashley’s family.”

 

Here is a link to the fundraising page. https://www.gofundme.com/ashley039s-kids

    I’m a Grand Islander, and I survived a motorcycle accident. I feel very lucky, and would love to help. What can I do?
