WASHINGTON BOROUGH, N.J. -

A community in New Jersey is coming together to remember a woman who was a victim of violence.

A memorial was held Wednesday for Margaret Graf-White at the Molloy Center in Washington Borough in Warren County.

Police say Graf-White was found stabbed to death in an apartment on West Steward Street earlier this month.

Investigators say Ralph Atkinson killed her.

We're told the two had a relationship.

At Wednesday's service, Graf-White's brother says he is working to keep her memory alive.

"Anything that we can do to help charitable domestic violence volunteering, stuff like that, we've got to do that through her name now," said Michael Collings

He says his sister was a loving mother of four children.

The family has set up a college fund through Go-Fund-Me in her name for her kids.
