Funerals set for 5 of 6 bus crash victims

A sombre week is in store for the city.

Funeral arrangements have been finalized for five out of the six victims of Wednesday’s Barrhaven bus-train crash, including OC Transpo driver David Woodard.

Four passengers will be honoured this week.

A service will be held for Karen Krzyzewski, 53, at Woodvale Pentecostal Church, 205 Greenbank Rd., on Thursday at noon.

Visitation is at Tubman Funeral Homes’ Garden Chapel (3440 Richmond Rd.) on Tuesday 3-7 p.m. and Wednesday 1-3 p.m. and 6-8 p.m.

The mother of two worked as an electronic publications acquisitions assistant at Library and Archives Canada for decades.

Krzyzewski’s family extends from Ottawa to Hamilton.

“She was an exceptional human being with a heart of gold, who loved to laugh and cared for her family and friends unconditionally and with great passion, as she did with all she embraced,” reads the obituary.

Anyone wishing to honour Krzyzewski can donate to Rideauwood Family Services or perform an act of kindness to someone in need.

Mourners are invited to wear green, Woodard’s favourite colour, at his service on Oct. 2

Woodard, 45, is survived by wife Terry and children Rebecca Woodard, Martin, and Marc.
