GoFundMe launched to help bring Tewksbury woman killed in Las Vegas home

Las Vegas shooting victim Rhonda LeRocque.

Priscilla Champagne's daughter, Rhonda LeRocque, a 42-year-old Tewksbury native, was one of dozens slain after a gunman opened fire at a crowded country music festival in Las Vegas Sunday night.

The family of Rhonda LeRocque, the Tewksbury mother killed in the Las Vegas massacre, is asking for help with expenses as they prepare to bring their beloved family member home to her final resting place in MA. Murdock explains that any money raised would help pay to fly LeRocque's mother out to Las Vegas "to say her goodbyes" before her body is cremated, in addition to assisting with medical and burial expenses.

LeRocque was a devout Jehovah's Witness and numerous comments on the fundraiser page reference her faith as well as reaching out to her husband and daughter in their local congregation in order to send donations directly there.

She described her daughter as a woman of God. As the music festival went long, her father-in-law took their daughter back to the hotel.
