BRENTON - Many attended the funeral held on Sunday for Elaine Birchfield of Brenton, who was murdered in her house last week.

Birchfield was killed Tuesday evening at her house on Shannon Mill Creek Road.

Funeral services were held at 11 a.m. Sunday at the Brenton Church of God. Birchfield was laid to rest in Shannon Cemetary in Baileysville.

Those close to Birchfield said she was a compassionate woman.

Birchfield worked as a bus driver for Wyoming County Schools for more than three years. A school bus decorated with a black ribbon on the front was parked outside of the church.

Superintendent Frank Blackwell told WOAY last week that Birchfield will be missed by many people at the schools. "Our thoughts and prayers...[are] of course with her and her family," he said. "And anything we can do to help them, we will try to do that as well."
