A bench dedicated to Sherin Mathews, the Richardson toddler who went missing and was found dead in a culvert, is expected to be unveiled Saturday at a memorial service open to the public.
The community will honor 3-year-old Sherin at 3 p.m. at the Restland Funeral Home and Cemetery at 13005 Greenville Avenue in Dallas. Doves are planned to be released after the hour-long interfaith ceremony.
Stuffed toy animals will be collected to donate in Sherin’s honor.
The latest news from around North Texas.
Sherin was reported missing in October and was later found in a culvert near the family’s home. Her father Wesley Mathews is charged with injury to a child and her mother Sini Mathews is charged with endangering a child.
The Dallas County Medical Examiner’s Office has not released Sherin’s cause of death.
