Priscilla Champagne on Tuesday described 42-year-old Rhonda LeRocque to reporters as a kindhearted woman with a “beautiful life.”
LeRocque had attended the concert Sunday with her husband and their 6-year-old daughter. LeRocque’s daughter was taken back to their hotel before the shooting occurred.
Champagne, who is LeRocque’s mother, says LeRocque’s husband, Jason, was next to her when she fell. He had thought she was ducking but she did not get up.
Champagne says LeRocque loved cooking, music and her family. She worked at the Cambridge, Massachusetts, office of the design company IDEO.
LeRocque was from Tewksbury, Massachusetts, a town located about 24 miles northwest of Boston.
