Deceased Canal Attack Victim Planned on Moving to Venice, GoFundMe for Memorial Aims to Raise $150K

Venice Was Her Favorite Part of the U.S., according to the post

By Zach Armstrong

A GoFundMe for the memorial, funeral and medical expenses of the recently deceased canal attack victim, along with the costs of college for her sons, has raised nearly $40,000 of its $150,000 goal. 

Sarah Alden, one of the women brutally attacked last month while walking along the Venice Canals, was taken off life support Friday night. 

According to the GFM post, Alden felt excitement around the time of the attack, because she had just signed a one-year lease in what the post described as “her favorite part of the United States”: Venice Beach. 

On April 6, Alden planned on meeting friends the next morning to announce her eminent L.A. move. That meeting never happened. On that night, at around 10:30 p.m., she was viciously  attacked along the Canals. She sustained multiple brain injuries which resulted in a coma, the post states. 

On Monday, May 20, in the late afternoon, Alden was declared brain dead. 

“She was a lover of sunrises on the east coast and sunsets on the west coast.” stated the GFM post. “Sarah homeschooled her two sons, adored her animals, and was blessed with a refined eye for vintage jewelry which she sold on roseark.com. At 53 years old, Sarah was looking to start a new chapter in her journey; to walk a new road. Instead, her life was violently taken from her.”

Following the tragic death, Alden’s sons will donate her organs, according to the post. “They hope the love of their mother can live on through the gift of life to others. Her final chapter will help others live on and continue on their road. Tragically, her two sons – young men that need your support – now look to create a memorial service and future without their mother.” it states.
