TACOMA, Wash. (AP) — The funeral for the two sons of missing Utah woman Susan Powell has been moved to a larger church.
The Curnow Funeral Home in Sumner says the funeral for 7-year-old Charlie and 5-year-old Braden was moved “due to overwhelming response from the community.”
It’s now scheduled for 11:00am Saturday at Life Center Church, 1717 S. Union Ave. in Tacoma.
A private family interment will take place on Monday at Woodbine Cemetery, Puyallup.
The funeral had previously been scheduled at a Puyallup church.
The boys were killed in a fire set by their father, Josh Powell, during a visit Sunday at his home in Graham. Powell was a person of interest in the disappearance of his wife two years ago.
