DONATIONS SOUGHT FOR FAMILY OF MOTORCYCLE CRASH VICTIM
On Sunday, October 5, Rebecca (Becki) Dempsey was tragically killed in a motorcycle crash in Mammoth Lakes. Becki was visiting Mammoth Lakes from London, England on a work visa and scheduled to return home on October 13.
There have been some informal fund raising efforts to assist Becki’s family with funeral arrangements. A secure fundraising site has been established in Becki’s name by Sarah Gibbons, her friend and former roommate. Donations can be made by going to “Gofundme.com” and going to the link to “For the family of Becki Dempsey.” Becki’s mother, Karen Dempsey, has confirmed that this site was established to support Becki’s family.
Karen said, “As you can imagine we had not planned for this to happen to someone so young. We have been overwhelmed by the support of her friends, Becki had only just graduated and most of our savings were spent funding that part of her education. Becki was liked by everyone she met. She was a very talented and positive person. Who, given the opportunity, would have had a bright future.
