OAKVILLE, Mo. – Jennifer Marr, the woman who was hit and killed last week when she got out of her vehicle on Telegraph Road was laid to rest Friday. Her community came out to show their love and support for her.

The 46-year-old mom of three was hit by a car on the morning of Friday, October 9 when she got out of her vehicle. She died from her injuries.

The accident happened at the intersection of Telegraph Road and Greymonte Estates Drive.

People wore red and white, the colors of her favorite team, the St. Louis Cardinals, and lined the streets near her church.

“Jen was the greatest person ever. Never a dull moment. Devoted to her family. Devoted to this parish and devoted to everybody here,” family friend Craig Sanders said.

At this point, it is not clear why she got out of her vehicle, but when she did she was hit by a car driven by a 38-year-old man.

He was treated for minor injuries and cooperated with police.

Students from the Queen of All Saints school lined up between the school and sports fields to honor Jennifer.

“There’s no one in the parish that she didn’t touch in some way or another,” Sanders said. “She’s just a fantastic person.”

Two of her children, a 13 and 10-year-old go to the school. Her 15-year-old son is a freshman at Vianney.

“Those kids were her life,” Sanders said. “We as people from the church and people of faith will be here to help the kids and keep their dreams alive.”

Jen’s prayer:

“Our friends, opening day in heaven, the cardinals played her game, o the stadium she would come, until all the cheering was done, once on earth, but now in heaven.

Give her this day, her friends dressed in red. Who we hope she’ll remember, and who have come to remember her and the memories she’s left us.

And lead us not into denial, but deliver us to celebrate her.

For this was Jen, a mother, a friend, and an avid fan. Amen.”

President Harry Truman said: “It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.” That spirit is alive and well at Fox 2. Our teamwork is on display each and every day.

Our news slogan is: “Coverage You Can Count On.” We quite frankly are too busy to worry about who gets the credit. Our main concern is serving the viewer.

We go where the stories take us. Whether it be Washington, D.C when a Belleville man opened fire during a congressional baseball game practice or to Puerto Rico where local Ameren crews restored power after more than 5 months in the dark.

Coverage You Can Count On means “Waking up your Day” with our top-rated morning show. From 4:00 am-10:00 am we are leading the way with breaking news. But our early morning crew also knows how to have some fun! Our strong commitment to the communities we serve is highlighted with our Friday neighborhood shows.

Our investigative unit consists of three reporters. Elliott Davis focuses on government waste, Chris Hayes is our investigative reporter, and Mike Colombo is our consumer reporter. They work in unison with the news department by sharing resources and ideas.

We continue to cover breaking news aggressively and relied on our seasoned journalists to make a difference with the stories we covered. The shooting of Arnold Police Officer Ryan O’Connor is just one example of that. Jasmine Huda was the only reporter who had exclusive access to the O’Connor family during his amazing rehabilitation in Colorado.

Last, but certainly not least, FOX 2 and KPLR 11 are committed to covering local politics. We host debates among candidates and have the most extensive presidential election coverage.
