RUSSIAVILLE, Ind. (WISH) - Hundreds attended a solemn memorial service Wednesday night for a Kokomo couple, killed by a suspected drunken driver in Seattle last month.
Dennis and Judy Schulte were remembered in a service at Western High School in Russiaville.
They were both retired teachers.
The Schulte's were hit as they crossed the street with their daughter-in-law and newborn grandson. She and her baby are still hospitalized, though both are doing better.
Wednesday, members remembered Dennis and Judy as loving parents and grandparents and pillars of the community.
"So I ask in memory, with purpose, sing your hearts out, pray, move your feet," Judy Schulte's sister Susan Morton said.
Family members thanked supporters as far away as Santiago de Chile. There was even a Skype connection set up with supporters and family in Seattle.
To honor the couple, the "Judy and Dennis Schulte Scholarship for Future Educators" has been established for students at Kokomo, Western and Northwestern High Schools.
Food Finders unveiled a new online fundraising challenge that could raise an additional $40,000 towards feeding the hungry.
