A memorial service is set for Thursday for a rural Keyesport couple who died in a car accident in rural Bond County on Saturday, May 21.
Micheal, 36, and Shelly Marshall, 38, were both killed when the vehicle they were traveling in, along with their daughter, was struck by another vehicle on Illinois Route 127 at Tamalco Avenue in Bond County. Although brave citizens were able to remove Toni from the wreckage, Micheal and Shelly could not be saved.
