According to Mayci Breaux’s first cousin, her funeral will be at Church of the Assumption in Franklin at 11 a.m.

Funeral services for Jillian Johnson will be held in the Delhomme Chapel of the Flowers in Lafayette at 12:30 p.m. Visitation hours will begin at 9 a.m. and last until the service begins.
