The Windermere High School community is mourning the death of one of its students.

Madison “Maddy” Trover, 17, died unexpectedly Saturday, Sept. 25.

Maddy’s aunt, Kelly Trover DiGiovanni, has set up a GoFundMe fundraiser to cover funeral and memorial expenses.

“Maddy was such a sweet and compassionate girl who loved race cars (just like her Daddy!), her dogs, crazy family and friends,” DiGiovanni wrote. “We are truly devastated and will forever feel her absence but have faith that she is at peace in heaven with our Lord and Savior.”

School officials acknowledged Maddy on the school’s Facebook page.

“The entire Windermere Community mourns the sudden loss of Maddy Trover,” officials wrote. “For now, we need to respect the family's privacy as they go through this difficult time. … WHS will have grief counselors on campus … to support any student in need. If you feel as if you need additional assistance, please contact the school. Thank you for the love and support you give our students every day.”

DiGiovanni wrote: “We ask that prayers be lifted for our family as we begin this new journey without our beautiful Madison Raven and are sincerely finding it impossible to let her go. Hug them tight, parents.”
