Kenora, NWO to honour Joseph family today

Members of the public are able to show their support to the Joseph family today.

A police-led procession will be leaving Brown’s Funeral Home and headed to Iskatewizaagegan #39 today and residents are able to show their support by safely gathering alongside the route.

Things begin at the Moncrief Construction Sports Centre at 2 p.m. and will head down 1st Avenue South, Matheson Street, 2nd Street South, Main Street South and Highway 17.

The Treaty Three Police Service and OPP will be leading the escort.

The traditional wake for Callie and Evan begins at 3 p.m. and a traditional funeral service will be held at the David Kejick School at 10 a.m. tomorrow.

The Josephs were on their way to a hockey tournament in Thunder Bay on April 21 when they were involved in a three vehicle collision on the TransCanada highway just before 11 a.m., sending four to the hospital.

Sadly, two of the victims were pronounced deceased upon arrival at the hospital. Callie was 15 and Evan was 11.

A fundraiser for the family has reached over $87,000.
