MONTGOMERY COUNTY, Ky. (WTVQ) A GoFundMe account has been set up by friends of the woman killed early Monday being a Good Samaritan to others in a traffic accident.
“This beautiful soul gained her angel wings early this morning, 08-03-2020, while doing what she always did best…helping others,” the page established by Jaycee Hurley says of Shana Dawn Cunningham-Terrill, of Pine Ridge. “She was the laughter in any room, always smiling, always trying to do anything possible to make everyone else’s like a little easier and a little brighter. There isn’t a lot we can REALLY do to ‘help’ her daughter and grand babies during this horrific time, but we can keep praying for them and we can all contribute to trying to make their lives a tiny bit easier through losing one of the most important people in their lives.”
The fund has a goal of $10,000.
