Many in White County are grieving the loss of 18-year-old Emilie Jo Turrentine.
Her body was recovered from Rend Lake after she apparently drowned while swimming with friends on Monday.
"Sweet, sweet person. She was always real friendly, very bubbly silly, very silly girl. You never knew what she was going to say or do. She was just a down to earth teenager. She was just a very sweet girl. Everybody is just so heartbroken," Burnett said.
Visitation for Emilie will be held on Friday from 3:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m. at receiving in God Ministry in Carmi. The funeral is at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday morning followed by burial at Kingdom Cemetery. All of the services are open to the public.
The football game at Eldorado has been moved back until 7:30 p.m. to accommodate those going to the visitation.
