Lantern Project: Since October 2013, Hope House has joined with other domestic violence programs around the state by implementing the Lantern Project. For our part in this statewide project, we added to the lamppost in front of Hope House a purple wreath. We will turn on the light for a week every time there is a death related to domestic violence in Wisconsin. We will post information online about the person(s) that was killed. If you drive by our building and see our lamppost on, please reflect on the deadly impact that domestic violence has on our communities. We know the list of stories we post here is incomplete. We strive to learn about and share these stories but know that there are some that we and the media miss. If you see a news story of a death in WI related to domestic violence and don't see it posted here, please feel free to let us know about it here. Thank you.
Obituary: "Christina Ashley Hatcher, 24, of Madison, WI and formerly of Marysville passed away Wednesday, February 24, 2016 at her residence.
To say that Christina was a social butterfly would be an understatement. She truly loved her time spent with her family and friends and they truly loved her. Her playful nature and bubbly personality was sure to bring a smile to their faces, no matter how she felt at the time. She enjoyed listening to music and was not afraid to show it by dancing and singing for her daughters, even if not the most fleet of foot.
A 2009 graduate of Fairbanks High School and Tolles Technical School, she participated in Marching Band, Concert Band and Pep Band. While in Madison, she worked at Applebee’s, having just been promoted to manager.
Born May 15, 1991, she was the daughter of Brad and Angela (Blevins) Hatcher and they survive in Sun Prairie, WI. Also surviving are her pride and joy, her daughters, Aubree Lynn and Brooklyn Joye Pool"...Read more
News Story: "The young daughters of homicide victim Christina Hatcher were supposed to move into her new North Side apartment this week, according to Hatcher’s mother.
Hatcher’s daughters, 5-year-old Aubree and 3-year-old Brooklyn Pool, had been living in Sun Prairie with her parents, Angela and Brad Hatcher. Hatcher moved to Wisconsin from her native Ohio 2½ years ago — when her father got a job in the area — so that her parents could help her with the girls.
'She loved her girls,' Hatcher’s mother said.
Hatcher, 24, of Madison was found dead in her apartment at 2501 Calypso Road on Wednesday after a concerned family member asked police to check on her around 9 a.m.
Hatcher’s boyfriend, 39-year-old Jose Vasquez, is the suspect in custody, according to Hatcher’s mother.
Vasquez was under guard at UW Hospital, where he was being treated for burn wounds police said he suffered when he set Hatcher’s car on fire on Tuesday afternoon in a possible suicide attempt"...Read more

I stumbled across this page when I saw my own name. I feel a connection after reading Christina's story as it sounds Iike we may have a lot in common. I am a single mother of two small children myself, and in school full time, just trying to make it. I feel so sorry that the opportunities she had been creating for herself and her girls were taken away. No words to express how unfair that is. Wish there was something I could do to help. I will pray for her family and sweet babies. They should be reminded how wonderful they made the little time she had here, and also that she will always be with them in their hearts and their souls. Our time on earth is short. We all join those we love some day in heaven where we are together for eternity... But for now, we have lessons to learn, even if they don't make sense sometimes.
