Residents are invited to share photos and memories of Kuo online prior to the vigil.

"Some people can change an entire city, because their love knows no bounds, and has no measure, we believe today, Catherine is that person. She was the Super Mom of all super moms, the one to inspire us to love our children, to hug them a little longer, to organize that campout for our best friends, to bring the neighborhood together, and to fight for the oppressed, all while wearing the latest fashions and bringing my daughter birthday cake when we were moving," Kuo's obituary read.

Kuo died when she was pinned between two vehicles while helping distribute food available to residents in need through the federal "Farmers to Families" program on Wednesday. She was 48.
