The tragedy continues in the Yorkville fire that claimed the life of 7 year-old Taylor Mishlanie. Her mother, Heather Mishlanie, who was in critical condition, has also passed away. "Heather was pronounced dead Friday evening, January 19th, but was kept on a machine to sustain blood flow to the vital organs so they could be donated to save other lives," Eric Stutler, a close friend of the family told us from the hospital Sunday morning.
Eric's wife Debbie set up Go Fund Me to help cover funeral costs. "This tragedy has left their family and friends heartbroken. To know both of them is to love them," writes Debbie. Over 5 thousand dollars was raised towards the 20 thousand dollar goal as of 11 A.M Sunday.
Heather was a registered nurse at Central New York Psychiatric Center. "Heather was one of a kind; a beautiful women who would’ve done anything for anyone," says Debbie.
Taylor was a student at Marcy Elementary school who loved her family and friends. "She had endless energy and an unforgettable smile."
