A relative of some of the six victims killed in a Kentucky interstate crash says the Wisconsin couple who died was dedicated to raising foster children.

 

Barbara and James Gollnow, their daughter, two foster children and family friend died March 2 when their SUV was struck by a semi near Glendale, Ky.

 

Pat Pelkey checked for mail at the Gollnow's house in Pella, a small town in Shawano (SHAW'-noh) County. Pelkey says her sister and James were adamant that their foster children have a great life. She tells The Post-Crescent the couple wanted their foster children to have a family and wanted them to feel loved.

 

Two other foster children in the Gollnow's vehicle survived the crash on Interstate 65. A combined memorial service for the family will be held Saturday in the Marion Elementary School gym.

 

Today is Gayle Berry Day!!!  Gayle is retiring July 31 from the South Central Kentucky Cultural Center.  A reception is being held today from 1-3.
