I lost my sister in 2016 to Domestic Violence and I am trying to raise funds for a scholarship in her name.
Stacey was taken from our family on October 28, 2016 in Camarillo, California. Her husband brutally beat her resulting in multiple blunt force traumas. Her children slept in the very next room while their father fled the home and was on the run until December 6th, 2016 when he was found dead in a field 2 miles from the California/Mexico border from a self inflicted gun shot wound. Stacey was kind, caring and had a smile that could light up any room. Stacey was 37 years old with a bachelors degree in finance that she earned while raising two sweet boys. She left behind her 8 and 6 year old boys, they were the light of her life and the reason for everything she ever did. Not only was Stacey educated but she also gave 5 years of her life in full time ministry in Colorado and Mexico. She was a fluent Spanish speaker who felt called to missions and served for as long as she could, because of Stacey many people came to know Christ. Her family desperately misses her and feel lost without her. I (her sister) am doing this to raise support for victims of domestic violence, to have an academic Scholarship in her name so that someone else may benefit from Stacey’s tragic loss.
