THE family of Natalie McNally say they are "determined to keep alive her legacy" as they made a donation to a diabetes charity in her memory.
Ms McNally (32) had lived with Type 1 Diabetes from she was three-years-old and her relatives recently handed over a cheque for £5,000 to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF).
The money had been donated in lieu of flowers for her funeral.
Her family said it was "a charity very close to Natalie’s heart".
"Natalie previously completed a sponsored swim to raise money for this great charity", they said in a statement to NI World.
"Natalie had lived with type 1 diabetes from the age of three. Typical of Natalie’s personality, as an adult she set herself a goal to raise money to help others, in this case children and young people diagnosed with diabetes. Upon Natalie’s death we asked people to donate to JDRF in lieu of flowers. We are overwhelmed with the generosity of the entire community which has raised £5,000 to assist this brilliant charity as it continues to do brilliant work on behalf of people Natalie cared about so passionately."
In a post on Twitter, Ms McNally's brother Brendan also thanked "everyone who helped by making a donation" to the charity following her death.
He added: "We're determined to keep alive Natalie's legacy of activism and fundraising for worthy causes".
Ms McNally was 15 weeks pregnant when she was murdered at Silverwood Green in Lurgan on December 18.
A man has been charged with her murder.
