Residents in Three Rivers and surrounding communities are rallying to raise funds, collect clothing and other items for the survivors of a fatal fire that happened in Fabius Township Tuesday.

Michelle Bixler was a mother of four and a wife of 19 years to James Bixler. She was an active member of Howardsville Gospel Chapel and devoted her life to nurturing her children, she balanced her janitorial work with homeschooling her son Jessie Bixler, taking her children to their extracurriculars, and maintaining a strong family bond.

Cheyenne was just as active in the community as her mother, participating in soccer, tae kwon do, and track, among other activities. She is described as an outstanding student in Three Rivers High School and aspired to one day join the FBI.

Other efforts to help the family include clothing drives at 4 locations:
