37 Year old Stephanie Judd of Benton City tragically lost her life last weekend when a tree branch broke off of a tree and landed on her during the Ye Merrie Greenwood Renaissance Faire being held at Columbia Park in Kennewick.

Some of her friends recently shared their thoughts with local television station KEPR 

Her friend and co-worker said Stephanie was a great mom, and she made everyone feel like family.

“She always tried to make life a party,” said Josh Randall, Stephanie’s co-worker. “She was always a happy person… Always building relationships with people. That's why she was so great. Everyone that came into the office she helped them feel comfortable.”

A go fund me account has been set up for Stephanie's family to cover the funeral expenses.

Our heart and prayers go out to her family and friends.
