SPOKANE-- Friends described Sharlotte McGill as "full of life." Her facebook page alone makes it obvious Sharlotte made an impact on many.   

Sharlotte McGill was stabbed while walking her dog, alone on a walking trail near 1800 E. South Riverton. According to her description of the incident, a man jumped out of the bushes, stabbed her several times and fled. Sharlotte later died as a result of her injuries.

On Sharlotte Facebook page you can see she was an animal lover and close to her daughter.

Her facebook page reveals she was a woman who was thankful for each breath of life.

Sharlotte often posted inspirational thoughts on her facebook page.

On December 6th, she wrote "I’m so in love with life and all it has to give to me."

Sharlotte recently moved from Wenatchee, and talked about her new life in Spokane.

In February Sharlotte and her daughter Billie were in a bad car wreck. She writes "Reality today and gone tomorrow." Sharlotte said she was "glad to still be around." One friend wrote "Thankful you're both ok, things are replaceable, but people aren't."

Friends and family know Sharlotte is irreplaceable, but they take heart in knowing she embraced every day as if it could be her last.

One of the most powerful things she wrote was, "Every day I have the chance to make great things happen in my life. Every day is exactly what I make it. Life is grand, I love all the moments of it."

Sharlotte worked at Costco in Spokane Valley. There was a grief counselor on hand Friday to speak with staff.

Sharlotte's daughter Billie told KREM 2 she was making funeral arrangements.

A memorial fund to help Billie has been set up at Numerica Credit Union.
