Grafton – Family and friends of 22-year-old Lindsey DeMoranville, a Grafton resident who was killed in a motor vehicle accident in Shrewsbury Nov. 27, have united to raise money to help her family pay for her final expenses.

According to the website www.giveforward.com, this is the second time tragedy has struck in the family this year. In July, DeMoranville’s young son Justin passed away from Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS). She was especially close to her younger sister, who has Down syndrome and requires constant care. Her family credits her with helping her sister get through three open heart surgeries.

DeMoranville “was a vibrant, beautiful daughter, mother, sister and friend,” the website reads.

“She was cherished by all she knew and all she touched. Lindsey’s heart was pure as gold.”

Faced with the financial responsibilities for final expenses coupled with the care of their younger daughter, DeMoranville’s family and friends are reaching out to the community of Grafton, as well as the online community, to help in any way possible.

To donate, visit www.giveforward.com and search under “Lindsey DeMoranville.” The family is hoping to raise $15,000 through Tuesday, Dec. 10.
