EGG HARBOR TOWNSHIP — The employer of an Atlantic City woman who was killed in a fatal pedestrian crash Wednesday night has set up an online fundraiser in her memory.

Hawkes Janitorial Contractors set up a GoFundMe account Friday to assist the family of 35-year-old Yoriana Alonso-Guzman.

According to the fundraising page, Alonso-Guzman, nicknamed “Yury,” was an employee of Hawkes Janitorial assigned to the AtlantiCare Health Park on English Creek Avenue for the past year. Alonso-Guzman worked for the company for eight years.

The GoFundMe page said Alonso-Guzman was married with three children. As of Saturday night, the site had raised $2,510 toward a goal of $10,000.

“Yury was an exceptional worker with an exceptional spirit and attitude, always willing to go above and beyond. She will be sorely missed,” the fundraising page said.

At 9:29 p.m., Wednesday, Alonso-Guzman was struck while crossing the westbound lane of the Black Horse Pike between Ivins and English Creek avenues, police said.

The driver of the vehicle that struck Alonso-Guzman was identified as township resident Mary Beal, 82. Police said Thursday an investigation into the crash is ongoing.
