A memorial fund has been set up to help support the family of Maren Sanchez and to honor her memory.
The 16-year-old honor student at Jonathan Law High School was killed in a stabbing at school on Friday. It was just hours before she was supposed to go to her junior prom.
Donations can be made to:
The Maren Sanchez Memorial Trust
Victoria J. Koch, Esq. Trustee
325 Reef Road, Suite 200
Fairfield, CT 06824
You can also make donations online at www.marensanchezmemorialfund.com.
The wake for Sanchez will be held on Thursday, May 1, from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Cody-White Funeral Home, located at 107 North Broad St, Milford, CT 06460.
In honor of the family’s wishes, students should not wear prom attire to the wake.
There will be no funeral service and burial will be private.
Rather than flowers, the family asks anyone who wants to make a donation to donate to the Maren Sanchez Memorial Trust.
Police have arrested a 16-year-old classmate and charged him as an adult with murder.
