Jennie Graves, 35, died after alleged push from moving truck on St. Mary’s Road in Winnipeg
The 35-year-old was killed this week after her common law husband allegedly pushed her out of a moving truck.
Graves' daughter Julie La Porte was touched by the number of people who came out to remember her mom Friday.
“She thought she was alone at times,” said La Porte. “She was like, 'I have no friends,' but look, I know she's going to be looking down and seeing how many friends she had waiting for her.”
Graves’ sister Kala MacDonald was also touched by all the people who came out last night.
“Anybody she met, you instantly liked her,” said MacDonald.”She was just an amazing person and kind and caring and such a strong mother for these girls and her son.
Graves leaves behind two baby girls and a teenage son and daughter.
