Michelle Reaves, described as a "mama, wifey and beautiful soul," passed away last week due to complications while giving birth.
"Although the baby made it out safe, Michelle did not," according to the page.

"Michelle has the best, most sarcastic, funny personality and always had you laughing," wrote Jaime Herwehe, a close family friend and the campaign organizer. "Michelle and Chris have two beautiful kids, Gage and Monroe who my heart breaks for, knowing they won't grow old with their mama."

After Reaves and her husband birthed their own children, they decided to help other families have babies, according to the GoFundMe. This was Reaves' second time being a surrogate for the same family.
