In a statement, her family wrote, “It is with profound and unexpected sadness, as well as heavy hearts, that we share the devastating news of the passing of our beloved sister, daughter, aunt, and friend this morning. She valiantly battled brain cancer with astonishing strength, grace, and resilience until her very last moments, leaving us all deeply shaken by the abruptness of her departure.”

They go on to say that they are in a state of disbelief but as they “grapple with the overwhelming sadness of her loss,” they “simultaneously celebrate the extraordinary life she led, the countless battles she conquered, and the enduring impact she made on this world.”
