Two GoFundMe accounts have been set up to help the family of a Kennewick coffee shop owner who died April 22.
Another account (http://bit.ly/swiftfundme) would pay for a bench to be placed in Erica Kelley’s honor near the Playground of Dreams in Columbia Park in Kennewick. The page, created by her mother-in-law Ruthanne Staley Swift, has a goal of $2,000.
The post says the bench costs $1,350 and any remaining money would go toward expenses to help Kelley’s husband, Anthony Swift, raise their kids. The ironworker can no longer travel for his job and he must find a job locally.
Kelley opened Purple Peaches six years ago and had her wedding ceremony on the TLC show Wedding Island in 2013, though the couple never officially married.
