The East Flatbush community held a candlelight vigil Friday for a woman who was fatally stabbed on her way to work.
Her sisters tell News 12 that Dorothy Clarke-Rozier that she was killed Wednesday while walking to her second job at Pathmark.
They say their sister had a passion for cooking, dancing and was described as being a hard-working person. Clarke-Rozier was an accountant but worked at Pathmark as a cashier on her days off.
Police say they've arrested a man in connection to her death. Her family is calling on the NYPD and community to honor Clarke-Rozier's memory by making sure people can shop and go to work safely.
Many different community organizations showed up Friday night offering support. 
Dorothy’s family says there will be a memorial service for her in about 2 weeks and then she will be laid to rest in the country she grew up in, Jamaica. 
Their family says in Dorothy’s honor, they pledge to push elected officials to have more resources available for those in need of mental health treatment.
