Her 1 p.m. funeral at the Nyman Funeral Home in Logan will be preceded by a candlelight vigil at 8 p.m. Saturday on the historic Cache County Courthouse's front steps and public viewings from 6-8 p.m. Monday and 11 a.m.-1 p.m. Tuesday at the funeral home.

Interment at Logan City Cemetery will follow the funeral.

Alex Whipple, a 21-year-old uncle of the girl, is charged with killing her.
