The memorial Facebook page set up for the family of Prudence Hockley, the Phinney Ridge woman who died Christmas Day after allegedly being assaulted by her boyfriend the day before, reports that an online donation account is being closed. However, donations can now be made to a fund set up at BECU.
Checks can be made out to the Prudence Hockley Benevolent Account, and mailed to BECU, PO Box 34044, Seattle, WA 98124-1044.
Two days ago, Hockley’s oldest daughter told me that the family would like to use the money to install a memorial bench at Green Lake, where Prudence loved to run, and to pay for 13-year-old Maggie’s future schooling. They also need help with funeral expenses.
Update: A memorial service for Hockley will be held at 6:30 p.m. on Jan. 21, at the Center For Urban Horticulture, at the University of Washington, 3501 NE 41st St. A friend of the family tells us that the family is asking for donations to the memorial fund, instead of flowers at the service.
