LOGANSPORT, Ind. (WSBT) - The mother of three children killed in a bus stop crash is celebrating what would have been her daughter's 11th birthday with a fundraiser in Logansport, WSBT reports. 

Her family is honoring her memory with a Frozen 2 movie event that will also raise money for school bus safety awareness. The family says Frozen was one of Alivia Stahl’s favorite movies.

Alivia’s mom, Brittany, tells WSBT you could often hear Alivia singing songs from the first Frozen movie throughout their home, so when the second movie came out, they knew they needed to plan something.”

“Her last birthday party that I had actually was donuts,” said Brittany.

Donuts now hang on what Brittany Ingle calls a “Memorial tree” as she prepares to celebrate another holiday season without three of her children.

“I can’t believe this is going to be her second birthday in heaven,” said Brittany. “It’s really hard.”

Brittany says that when she heard Frozen 2 was coming out near the time of Alivia’s birthday, it was the perfect way to honor her.

“In a way, it’s still that nurturing feeling,” said Brittany. “I’m not able to plan her a birthday party anymore and celebrate with her. But I feel that having this event is something she would have loved.”

The event will honor her daughter and also raise funds to increase the family’s goal of improving school bus safety.

“You hear more about bus stop violations now, like bus safety really is a thing now,” said Brittany, “And to know that that’s a topic and we’re saving lives and we’ve got the cameras on the buses, it makes everything so much worth it.”

It’s something Brittany hopes to expand outside of Rochester.

“People are still blowing through the buses,” said Brittany. “Hopefully get them in a bigger city on billboards. I would love to see them everywhere.”

The sentencing for Alyssa Shepherd, the woman who hit and killed Brittany’s children, is coming up next week.

The birthday fundraiser this weekend gives Brittany something else to focus on and gather people together to honor her daughter in a fun way.

“It’s still doing something for her,” said Brittany. “It’s planning a party for her in a different way, and I know she’s going to be there with me in spirit.”

The family has more than 100 tickets available. Tickets are $12 and include popcorn and a drink.

The movie will take place at 10 a.m. at Merry Max Cinemas in Logansport.

Shepherd was found guilty of five counts, including Reckless Homicide. She will be sentenced next Wednesday and faces a maximum of 21 and a half years behind bars.
