PALMER TWP., Pa. -

Friends and family gathered Tuesday to remember a Northampton County woman.

Tracylyn Heller was hit by a car and killed Sunday in Palmer Township.

A candlelight vigil was held Tuesday night along 25th Street near the spot where the accident happened.

"We're going to miss her very much," said her aunt, Donna Zazulak. "She was kind. She'll do anything for anybody. She'll bend over backwards for people."

"She was a real sweetheart," said her cousin, Thomas Howey. "She's so young and such a great person. It's horrible in every way."

It was an emotional gathering as friends and family came together to remember the 35-year-old.

Heller was hit on South 25th Street in Palmer Township just before 11 p.m. Sunday.

Police say she was trying to cross the street to get to work at the Giant grocery store when a car hit her.

She was pronounced dead at the hospital.

The accident is under investigation.

"It's hard to hear something like that. You're just walking to work, minding your own business and next thing you know this happens; it's a tragedy," said Bartholomew.

"She loved her job and what she liked was her nieces and nephews very much," said her aunt.

Donations to help Heller's family with funeral and other expenses can be made at the Giant grocery store where Heller worked on 25th Street.
