Tara Roe Smith, a model, mother and wife from Canada was one of the 58 killed in the attack on the Route 91 Harvest music festival. She was 34.

Statements from a modeling agency and a school where she worked in Okotoks, Alberta, Canada, mourned Roe Smith. Sophia Models International, where she modeled for 10 years, described her as “a friendly face and had a very caring spirit” in a statement on their Facebook page posted late Tuesday.

Roe Smith was also an educational assistant for the Foothills School Division, according to a statement on their website from superintendent John Bailey.

A GoFundMe has been created to help support Roe Smith’s husband, Zach, and their two young sons. In one day, the campaign raised more than $120,000.
