A donation account has been established to help cover the burial costs of a 29-year-old Finley woman who died Thursday.
Angela Pendleton was found dead inside her home at Kelley's Estates mobile home park. No cause of death was determined when an autopsy was completed Friday, so officials are waiting for toxicology results.
Pendleton's sister-in-law, Lisa Josten, said Pendleton had some medical conditions for which she was taking medication and just started a new medication the day before she died.
The family has no money to pay for funeral expenses, so they have set up donation cans at stores around the area and opened an account at Gesa Credit Union, Josten said.

She said that they would use any remaining money to help care for Pendleton's three children, Daniel, 11, Nevaeh, 9, and Kylee, 4. They are staying with Pendleton's best friend.
"Her three kids are, wow, they got it rough now," Josten said. "They got a lot of family who loves them, and they're at a good home right now. ... But financially, it's a huge problem. She didn't have money to spare."
