Funeral services set for doctor, pharmacy student
Memorials held for two women killed in mass shooting last week
Funeral services have been set for two Northwest Indiana women who were killed in a mass shooting at a Chicago hospital late Monday afternoon.
Visitation for Dayna Less, a pharmacy student from Dyer, Indiana, will be from 2-8 p.m. Sunday at Lincoln Ridge Funeral Home, 7607 W. Lincoln Hwy., Crown Point.
Her funeral will be at 9 a.m. Monday, Nov. 26, at St. Archangel Michael Church, 1500 186th St., Lansing, Ill., with burial at St. Sava Monastery, 32377 N. Milwaukee Ave., Libertyville, Ill., immediately following.
Visitation for Tamera O’Neal, the doctor and original victim, will be from 4-8 p.m. Friday at Haverstock Funeral Home, 602 Maple Ave., LaPorte.
A second visitation will be held prior to funeral services at 10 a.m. Dec. 1 at First Church of God, 2020 E. Lincolnway, LaPorte; with church services starting at 11 a.m. Interment will immediate follow at Pine Lake Cemetery, 1367 Pine Lake Road, LaPorte.
O’Neal was shot to death Nov. 19 in front of Mercy Hospital & Medical Center after her former fiance, Juan Lopez, confronted her about returning her engagement ring. O’Neal had broken off the engagement weeks before she was to marry Lopez for reasons unclear to her family, it was reported.
Less, a 2012 Lake Central graduate who endured mi- graine headaches as a teenager before surgery helped her, was exiting an elevator when she was killed.
A Chicago police officer, Samuel Jimenez, also died in the shooting.
Lopez, who died in the shooting, had a history of domestic violence.
