A trust fund has been set up for the family of murder victim Julie Paskall as Newton-area residents in Surrey plan a meeting Monday to discuss safety issues in the wake of her beating death on Dec. 29.
Residents of the neighbourhood are expected at 7 p.m. at the Newton Seniors Centre to discuss the topic.
Paskall, a 53-year-old mother of three, was found badly beaten on Sunday last week in the Newton Arena parking lot, where she was picking up her son from the rink.
She was taken to hospital but died. Police believe robbery was the motive for the attack.
Vancity Credit Union has begun a “Paskall Family Trust” to assist the Surrey resident’s family. She leaves behind a 16-year-old son, two adult daughters and her husband.
Family friend Bill Hoadley is helping collect the donations and can be reached at 778-987-0137.
