Soccer games to fund girl's memorial scholarship

CEDAR SPRINGS, Mich. (WOOD) — Outside Cedar View Elementary, painted rocks honor the memory of two students lost: Emma Orr, who died of cancer in September 2017, and Cora Gonzales.

Cora was crossing M-57 in Oakfield Township when she was hit by a vehicle on Oct. 6, 2017. She died in the hospital a few weeks later. She was 11 years old.

"It's (a) devastating loss. … Our hearts just ache," Anna Nozkowski told 24 Hour News 8 Monday. "She was just this sweet girl who was just amazing. Everybody around her loved her."

Anna Nozkowski is head of the youth soccer club in Cedar Springs and also a close friend of the Gonzales family. She knew this month would be especially hard on the family.
