NASHVILLE, Ill. — Services are set for three southern Illinois family members and another relative killed in a Kentucky plane crash that a 7-year-old girl survived.

Forty-eight-year-old Marty Gutzler, 46-year-old wife Kimberly Gutzler and their 9-year-old daughter Piper Gutzler died at the scene of the crash of the small plane on Friday. A 14-year-old cousin of Piper’s, Sierra Wilder, also was killed.

The Gutzlers’ other daughter, Sailor Gutzler, crawled from the wreckage and managed to walk roughly a mile while injured and barefoot to a home, telling the resident of the crash.

Wilder’s services will be at 10 a.m. Wednesday at Campagna Funeral Home.
