Stacee Etcheber, remembered as a passionate, loving wife and mother "who lights up a room," was attending the country music festival with her husband, San Francisco police Officer Vinnie Etcheber. As gunfire rained down on concertgoers, Vinnie told Stacee to run while he tended to the wounded. On Tuesday, a frantic search for Stacee ended, as family members confirmed she had died.
