A GoFundMe campaign to help a pair of Lavington sisters who have lost both parents to sudden deaths raised more than double the target on the campaign’s opening day.
That’s a strong indication of just how the Roine family is well thought of.
Norm Roine, a father, brother, uncle, friend and well-known Lavington community member, died suddenly June 29. His death comes almost four years to the day his wife Brenda died in a water skiing accident on Sugar Lake near Cherryville July 1, 2014.
“This GoFundMe page is set up to honour the Roine Family, and to assist Norm and Brenda’s two daughters, Ali and Emma, with whatever they may need in their future moving forward,” states the campaign page.
As of Wednesday morning, the campaign had raised $12,725. The original goal was $5,000. A check before noon Thursday showed the campaign had reached $17,395.
