CRETE | Visitation and funeral arrangements have been finalized for one of two teens killed in a motorcycle crash in the Crete-Monee High School parking lot Friday night.

Visitation for Kelsey McGill, 18, will take place from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday at Crete Funeral Home, 1182 Main St. in Crete. Funeral services will take place at 11 a.m. at Crete United Methodist Church, 1321 Main St.

Interment will be at Oak Hill Cemetery in Watseka, Ill.

Her funeral is scheduled one day before what would have been her 19th birthday.

According to the funeral home, McGill was attending Paul Mitchell cosmetology school in Tinley Park at the time of her death. She was also actively involved in the Crete United Methodist Church's youth group.

McGill graduated with honors in 2012 from Crete-Monee High School, 1515 W. Exchange Ave.

McGill was riding a motorcycle in the parking lot of her alma mater at 10:56 p.m. Friday along with friend Patrick Boylan, 19, also of Crete, when the motorcycle crashed, killing them both.

Boylan's memorial service will take place from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. Thursday at Crete Funeral Home. The funeral service will start at 6 p.m. Thursday. Funeral officials said the family is asking for donations instead of flowers.

According to the Will County Coroner's office, Boylan died of head injuries and McGill died of multiple injuries suffered in the crash.

The Crete Village Board conducted a moment of silence Monday night for Boylan and McGill, while village Trustee Holly Milburn said her sympathies went out to the families of the two.

"Some extremely young people were lost," she said. "All the families need our support and our prayers. We should keep them in our thoughts."

Their official causes of death are pending full autopsy, toxicology and police reports. A spokeswoman for the coroner's office Monday said the toxicology reports could take weeks.
