The family of a young mother who was fatally struck by a car while walking home is raising funds for her funeral.
Sharmayne Fisher, 22, was allegedly hit by a black BMW hatchback at the intersection of Farrall Rd and Morrison Rd in Midvale, Perth just after 10.30pm on Friday.
She died at the scene, leaving behind her 22-month-old son.
The 32-year-old female driver was not injured, police said at the time.
Angela Roads, who is Ms Fisher’s aunt, has organised a GoFundMe page, seeking to raise $15,000 for the funeral.
“We … are absolutely devastated and can’t believe our beautiful, funny, beloved Sharmayne is gone,” she wrote.
“She leaves behind a beautiful little 22-month-old boy, who so sadly is going to grow up without his mummy.
“We’d like to give her the send-off she deserves and unfortunately no time is a good time to afford an unexpected funeral cost.
“We are asking you, if you knew and loved Sharmayne, if you know her family or friends, and you can find it in your heart to spare any amount, then please, please help us pay for her funeral.
“The whole family appreciates your support at this such sad and difficult time.”
More than $4000 has been raised so far.
Tributes have also been pouring in for Ms Fisher.
“Sharmayne was an amazing person, friend and mother. We will all miss her so much and she deserves the best send-off,” one person wrote.
Ms Fisher’s grandmother, Heather Fisher, said she had an artistic flair and remembered her a “beautiful girl”.
“She did beautiful artwork,” she told the ABC.
