The family of an 18-year-old woman who was killed the same day her younger sister heard President Barack Obama speak about gun violence in Chicago has set funeral arrangements for her.
Janay McFarlane's family plans to hold visitation 4 to 9 p.m. Thursday at Gatling's Chapel, 10133 S. Halsted St., Chicago. Visitors are asked not to take photographs.
McFarlane's funeral is scheduled for noon Friday at the Greater Tabernacle Missionary Baptist Church, 11240 S. Indiana Ave., Chicago. She will be buried at Mount Hope Cemetery, 11500 S. Fairfield Ave., Worth Township.
Family members are establishing a memorial fund and will announce details soon, said Angela Blakely, McFarlane's mother.
An 18-year-old man and a 20-year-old man are being questioned in the homicide investigation, North Chicago police said. The men were arrested after McFarlane was shot about 11:30 p.m. Friday in the 1300 block of Jackson Avenue in the north suburb.
Blakely said she would insist on a closed coffin for McFarlane's funeral Friday. "I don't want that to be the last memory I have of my daughter," Blakely said Monday.
