The small town of Pine Falls, Man., has been shaken by the deaths of two people, whose motorcycle crashed with a pickup truck on the weekend.
Della Vincent Clark, 50, and her boyfriend Ken Pachkowsky, 61, were pronounced dead at the scene of the Sunday morning crash, near Highways 44 and 11, close to Elma, Man.
Both were from Pine Falls.
"Everyone knows everyone, everyone is really upset. My mom, like she had a lot of friends, she was really well liked," Clark's daughter, Jasmine, told CBC News.
"Everyone [in Pine Falls] is so devastated but I've had so many people do nice things for me already. I've had flowers outside my door, I've had so many calls and Facebook messages."
Della Clark's personality made it easy for her to make friends, her daughter said.
"My mom was just beautiful, beautiful person. She had tons of energy, she was vibrant, she was friendly," Jasmine Clark said.

"She always had a good word to say about everyone. Just a really, really nice lady."
The two people in the truck, an 88-year-old man and a 62-year-old woman from Winnipeg, suffered minor injuries.
RCMP do not believe alcohol was a factor in the crash, and officers said Clark and Pachkowsky were wearing helmets.
Jasmine Clark said her mom and Pachkowsky had been together for about a year.
"They were a perfect match. I know he made her really happy and we all really liked Ken," she said.
"He was so funny and warm and he was a great cook — took care of her."
Jasime Clark said she is still trying to deal with the shock of the crash and of losing her mom.
"You just never think it's going to happen to your mom," she said.
"I've driven with Ken on the motorcycle myself and I knew he was a really cautious driver. It never crossed my mind."
