The Michaela MacVilla Fund Created to Help Grieving St Johnsville Family
A community is coming together to help a grieving family with the Michaela MacVilla Fund, created for the St Johnsville woman found dead a week after going missing.
Police released the tragic news that MacVilla's body was found by someone searching their property off Kringsbush Road in Oppenheim Tuesday, October 3rd. She'd been missing since walking home from work Tuesday, September 25th. Police are continuing to investigate and few details are being released. If you know anything you're asked to call 518-568-2141.
If you want to help cover funeral expenses, you can donate to the GoFundMe Michaela MacVilla Fund.
"The family has endeared so much with losing their 2 daughters and not being able to work. They need to take this time to heal and help their other 3 children heal. The financial burden of Michaela's final expenses and family bills are becoming overwhelming. We are asking to please donate to help Michaela's family in this time of need."
This is the second child the Jump family has had to bury. August 31st, Kimberly Jump passed away unexpectedly at the age of 24.
"I don’t know as a mother how I’ll move on from this," writes MacVilla's mother Samantha Jump on Facebook. "Please light a candle and say a prayer for our angel who was taken much too soon and now watches over us."
