TURNER CO., GA (WALB) -

Tonight people gathered together at the Christian Union Church of God in Ashburn to honor Jayme Barbree, who died of cancer earlier this week.

Several dozen people came together to worship and donate funds to help the family of Barbree with expenses. She was 34 years old, and a mother of three children.

Her funeral was held earlier today. Family and friends say she was a fighter, and battled Cancer for three years

"Our son is married to her sister and its just been a long hard fight, its been hard on the family and she passed away this past Thursday morning somewhere around four or five and a good kid, a fighter," says Rodney Brown, a family friend.

Trinity Baptist Church sponsored the event.
