GAINESVILLE - A joint funeral service will be held Thursday for a woman and two of her children who were among the victims of Monday's wreck south of Gainesville that killed five people.<br />
The service for Amanda Lynn Pardue, 34; Kaleigh Lynn Emfinger, 8; and Eli Lamar Emfinger, 2, all of Gainesville, will be held at 3:00 at Ward's Funeral Home Chapel in Gainesville. <br />
The children were passengers in the back seat of an SUV that Pardue was driving, which veered across the median and into the path of a tractor-trailer on Athens Highway south of town.<br />
Meanwhile, an account has been set up for the family through BB&T Bank on Jesse Jewell Parkway in Gainesville.<br />
