Michela Wooldridge will be laid to rest in a burial and memorial service set for next Tuesday in Fortuna and Hydesville.

The young, 24-year-old mother was brutally stabbed to death in Santa Rosa on November 1, as reported in the Humboldt Sentinel.

She lived in Humboldt County for about 5 years where her mother was raised, and had moved to Sonoma County before entering a Christian rehabilitation program there.  She leaves behind a two year son.

Michela will be buried next to her grandfather on Tuesday, November 20, at 10 a.m.  It will be at the Catholic Cemetery at 1715 Main Street in Fortuna, her stepfather, Kevin Wilson, said.

A noon memorial service will follow at the Hydesville Community Church, located at 3296 Highway 36 in Hydesville.

Michela’s family is accepting donations to help pay for her burial.

Donations can be made at any Wells Fargo bank branch to account number 2919021044.
