Funeral arrangements have been set for a Chesterfield Township teen who died Tuesday.

Ashlee Sokalski sustained massive injuries in a motocross race in Tennessee Thursday, Aug. 5. On Tuesday, her family made the difficult decision to pull her off of life-support after doctors at Vanderbilt University Hospital informed them there was nothing more they could do to save her.

Viewing arrangements for Sokalski are from 2 p.m. to 9 p.m. Saturday and Sunday at Wujek-Cacaterra and Sons Funeral Home at 16 Mile Road and Schoenherr in Sterling Heights. Funeral services will be at noon Monday at Christian Memorial Cemetery on Hamlin Road in Rochester Hills. A luncheon for family and friends will follow at Rivercrest Banquet Hall, 900 West Avon Road in Rochester.

Additionally, a tribute fundraiser will be held Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at L'Anse Creuse North High School. According to a Facebook page announcing the event, friends will be taking memorial T-shirt and decal orders and accepting contributions for Sokalski's family during a pig roast.

I wonder how much money they will make from all the swagg they sell?........
I don't think that's really appropriate in here and I doubt it'll be enough to cover all the expenses.

Chances are she was way underinsured, not insured, and the family had all of it's
resources in her racing efforts. Then the monumental cost of a funeral, I really feel for them.
 
WOW, heart wrenching for sure, Love and prayers to the surviving members of the family. I know if it was one of mine I would want to be taken instead. God Bless the family.
