There is a candlelight vigil scheduled for tomorrow night for Sandra Teichow. The information is below along with the obituary which was posted today…I imagine a full obit will appear at a later date:

The Racine Interfaith Coalition will be leading a prayer vigil for homicide victim Sandra Teichow on Thursday.

The candlelight vigil is planned for 6 p.m. Thursday in the area of West Sixth Street and Mound Avenue west of the railroad bridge, according to the group.

Teichow’s body was found Thursday in a wooded area south of the intersection of West Sixth Street and Mound Avenue.

A memorial service will be held Saturday at 2 p.m. at Horticultural Hall, 330 Broad St., Lake Geneva

Journal Times also printed an article yesterday which was really not surprising after hearing so many wonderful stories about Sandra Teichow. Apparently, last year, a woman gave out cash anonymously to people standing in line for food vouchers here in Racine. After viewing Teichow’s picture in the paper this past week, 2 women came forward to tell the JT that they recognized Teichow as the woman who handed out the money. The charitable stories surrounding this woman seem endless. Maybe there really ARE angels. Maybe she was always a level above the most, hovering here to share goodness for a brief moment before returning to where she belongs…where we will one day all belong. It sounds typical and annoying to say, ‘She is now in a better place.’ But that really isn’t what I mean. What I mean is that maybe she was a conduit FROM that place all along.
