SUMMERSVILLE - Loved ones gathered Saturday
evening in Summersville to remember a local woman who was killed in a car
accident one month ago.
Family and friends held a memorial for
Savannah Rae-Brooke McKinney, 25, who passed away August 27, following a car
accident in Braxton County. She was two-and-a-half months pregnant.
“This is our way of remembering and cherishing her life, her
beauty, her grace and all the wonderful things that we all have to talk about
and share about her,” explained friend Tawyna Coleman. McKinney was a
bubbly person who was fun to be around, according to Coleman.
The flames of candles burned as loved
ones spoke about McKinney’s life and shared memories.
