MARION, WI (WTAQ) - A memorial service will be held Saturday afternoon at Marion Elementary School for three members of a Pella family who died in a fiery freeway crash in Kentucky.
James and Barbara Gollnow, both 62, died in the crash along with their adopted daughter Sereena Gollnow who was 18.
The Eberhardt-Stevenson Funeral Home is handling the arrangements for the family, as well as for family friend Marion Chapnoise.
Funeral arrangements for the 92-year-old Chapnoise were still pending at last word.
The funeral home is not involved in services for two foster children who died in the crash.
All six were in an SUV that was rear-ended by a semi-truck last Saturday about 50 miles south of Louisville on Interstate 65. They were coming home from a vacation in Florida at the time.
The Marion school was opened last Saturday to help students and staff members with their grief. District Administrator Mike Gaunt said the school is now gradually returning to normal. And they’ll continue to support the youngsters who need it for as long as necessary.
