Google honored a British politician killed last week by featuring her on its U.K. homepage. 

The tribute to member of Parliament Jo Cox, allegedly targeted for her opposition to Britain's leaving the European Union, was unveiled on Wednesday -- the day before the referendum on whether the country should leave the EU, known as the "Brexit." Cox was a Brexit opponent and a staunch supporter of immigration.

The mother of two would have celebrated her 42nd birthday on Jun. 22.

The phrase "In remembrance of Jo Cox MP" appeared under the search bar, linking to a Google+ page that promoted a GoFundMe campaign raising money for various causes she supported.

"Today, on what what would have been her birthday, we’d like to honour and remember Jo Cox MP, who dedicated her life to the belief that there is more that unites us than divides us. Help honour Jo by making a donation to her memorial fund:"

Thomas Mair, the 52-year-old man charged with Cox's murder, told a court on Saturday that his name was "death to traitors, freedom for Britain."

Polls taken in the days leading up to the EU referendum showed the two sides in dead heat.
