ROANOKE (WSLS) – Though no details about funeral arrangements for Alison Parker have been announced, a celebration of her life will be held at a later date after a private memorial service.

Instead of sending flowers, her family asks that donations be made to the Alison B. Parker Memorial Fund at JMU or to the Valley Stars and Salvation Army of Roanoke.
