The funeral for Dalton's Brittany Huber will be today (Friday) - the same weekend she had planned to be married to Dalton State assistant basketball coach John Redman.

Ms. Huber, 24, was killed on impact and Coach Redman was critically injured in a wreck near Newman, Ga., on Monday.

Visitation is at Springhill Baptist Church in her native Mobile, Ala., from 5-6 p.m., and the memorial service will follow. The marriage was to have taken place in the same church.

She was a paraprofessional at City Park Elementary school in Dalton.

Her obituary says, "Those who knew her loved her for her warm and giving personality, and her ability to bring joy to all those around her."

Ms. Huber is survived by her mother, Maragaret Ann Hall (Phillip), her father, Dr. Michael Steven Huber (Lori), a sister Gretchen Ann Hall (16), a brother Michael Harrison Huber (16), grandparents Eva Watford (Dwight), Henry Huber Jr., Thomas Michael "Mickey" Harrison (Sharon) and a host of extended family and friends.
