A wake was scheduled Wednesday for the 911 dispatcher killed in a crash with a stolen SUV driven by a 16-year-old.

Marciea Adkins had just left work Sunday morning when her car was struck near Hoyne and Armitage in Bucktown.

Police were pursuing the 16-year-old boy driving the stolen Range Rover at the time of the crash. He was arrested after witnesses say he tried to run away.

Adkins wake was planned at St. Josaphat Church at Southport and Belden. Her funeral was set for Thursday.
