Philadelphia, PA – It is with heavy hearts that Delta Phi Epsilon mourns the loss of one of our collegiate sisters. Kendall Douglas (Gamma Alpha Chapter at Southern Illinois University- Edwardsville) passed away early Monday morning from a fatal car accident.

“No parent should ever have to experience the loss of their child. The thoughts and prayers of the entire sisterhood are with Kendall’s family during this very difficult time,” said Nicole L. DeFeo, International Executive Director.

To help ease the financial burden of this tragedy, the chapter has set up a GoFundMe account on behalf of Kendall’s family. You can search “Remembering Kendall Douglas” to assist.

“She was a ray of sunshine and had the biggest heart. She touched so many lives and everybody had nothing but nice things to say about her… We are so devastated to have such an amazing individual taken from us way too soon,” shares Gamma Alpha Chapter President Brooke Williams.
