Cheri Saupp may be gone, but she will not be forgotten. That was evident with the amount of people who came to her memorial service Friday night.
The Ukrainian Catholic Church was packed on Friday as family and friends came together to remember Cheri Saupp.
There was a beautiful prayer service followed by a reception.
This memorial service was all about celebrating Cheri's life and what she meant to her loved ones rather than focusing on how she died.
Cheri's niece got emotional during the service as she vowed to fight for her aunt.
"We will walk for you until we can't feel out feet and we will speak for you until your story has been heard by everyone," said Madelynn Maiolo. "I don't wanna just take this tragedy that happened and just think that it was a death or a loss. Its something, we can do something about this. We're gonna walk, we're gonna get t-shirts, we're gonna start a team of people for my Aunt Cheri and were gonna walk for her. We're not gonna let the message die, we're not gonna let her life just die."
Brian Brewcynski is accused of beating Cheri to death and is being charged with second degree murder.
