Miranda Schachinger was a 26-year-old mom living in Midvale, Utah. She had a 5-year-old son named Carston from a previous marriage.
Clearly, Miranda was beautiful on the outside, but she was someone that was beautiful on the inside, too.
Miranda was the kind of young woman everyone wanted to be friends with, and she had a lot of people that considered her a best friend.
It’s not surprising she was so well-liked; she was just an all-around caring and gentle person. She was the same way with her son, and he thought the whole world of her.
“She was a great mother, hard-worker, and loving to all who crossed paths with her,” Miranda’s family said in a statement.
Scrolling through Miranda’s Facebook page, you could tell she was motivated and determined.
She frequently posted upbeat quotes and things like, “no grit, no pearl” and “you get what you work for, not what you wish for.”
She worked hard as a care coordinator for an assisted living facility and was a certified nursing assistant. At the same time, she also was putting herself through nursing school.
Miranda just woke up every day wanting to help other people, and she always had a big smile on her face.
On May 1st, at 4:28 in the morning, just hours before her life was cut short, she posted something chilling on Facebook.
