WILLMAR -- An estimated 500 people attended the funeral Saturday at Redeemer Lutheran Church for Lila Mae Warwick, the 79-year-old woman murdered one week ago in her home just outside Willmar.


Pastor Greg Enterline said it's hard to believe that someone would take the life of a woman who cared so much about others and about her faith. He said many people are going to miss her. Enterline said Warwick left a positive impression on most people.
