SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (WCIA) — A girl who gathered a Central Illinois town for a Christmas parade has died.
3-year-old June Peden-Stade of Auburn died Thursday night, her parents said in a Facebook post. Peden-Stade had neuroblastoma.
“She will be so dearly missed but we’re so happy knowing that she’s playing and pain free again,” Ali Peden, Peden-Stade’s mom, wrote. “Mom & dad love you so much.”
Her Make-A-Wish was for a Christmas parade, which the city of Auburn hosted last week.
