    A San Jose mother who survived a plane crash in Riverside last month has died, officials said.

    San Bernardino Sheriff spokesperson Jodi Miller on Wednesday confirmed the death of Stacey Pierce.

    "It's a sad day today. God needed another angel," family friend Sheryll Van Gelder wrote on a GoFundMe page for Pierce. "Stacey Joanne Pierce is now at peace with her parents."

    Pierce had been ejected from a twin-engine Cessna 310 that crashed Feb. 27 into a Southern California neighborhood. Silvia Farelas was the only other crash survivor. Farelas' daughter, 22-year-old Adine Farelas, died, as did Pierce's parents, Nouri and Dana Hijazi.
