Vigil planned for Berea teen who died days after carrying out Easter wish

MADISON COUNTY, Ky. (WKYT) - A young woman who worked to make others happy while fighting for her own life has died.

The pastor of Victory Life Church in Georgetown tells WKYT that Jordyn Conner passed away at Kentucky Children's Hospital late Monday night. The 19-year old, who was a member at the church, lost her battle with bone cancer.

On Saturday, Conner was able to carry out one last wish. She gave out 100 Easter baskets to other children at the hospital through a program she started called 'Jordyn's Jems.'

A candle-light prayer is scheduled for Tuesday night in memory of Jordyn at Lake Reba park in Richmond at 8:30 p.m. Organizers say if you plan on coming, bring a candle and a balloon.
