Ainsley, a second-grader at Cherry Creek Elementary School in Marquette, passed away recently. The 8-year-old had been battling a rare form of cancer — rhabdomyosarcoma — since 2012. All who knew the child or her family were invited to the event. Party activities included a photo booth, bouncy house, dancing, crafts, a picture display of Ainsley, food and refreshments. Attendees were encouraged to dress in purple, Ainsley’s favorite color. (Journal photo by Corey Kelly)
