WAUKESHA — A public memorial gathering will take place Tuesday evening to remember the three Waukesha residents that died in a fiery, wrong-way crash in Minnesota.

On Friday, August 2nd, six people were killed after a vehicle heading eastbound struck another car going westbound near Rochester, Minnesota.

Driver Sheila Eagle, 54, and Tamara Eagle, 29, of Waukesha were in a 2008 Ford Focus and died at the scene. Both were not wearing their seat belts, according to the Olmsted County Sheriff's Department. Nyobee Eagle Richardson, 11, of Waukesha, also died.

The public memorial for the three will take place from 6:30-8:30pm in the upper level Chapel of The Salvation Army Waukesha County. All are welcome to attend. Their funeral will be Thursday in Green Bay.
