"It is obviously a terrible loss for the family and friends."
Reverend Manette Crossman, from the Parish Church of Stratford St Mary, said: "I am absolutely shocked, our thoughts and prayers are with the family.
"It is such a horrible thing and a young life has been cut short, we will try and make contact and if we can help in anyway then we will do that.
"Our church is also open if people want to go in and spend some private time and to think, remember and reflect."
Her death comes after it was announced another woman died on the southbound A12 near Galleywood, Essex, following a collision in the early hours of Tuesday morning.
Suffolk police are appealing for any witnesses or anyone with dash-cam footage that captured the collision to call the Serious Collision Investigation Unit on 101, quoting CAD 343 of August 2.
