Staff Reports

A memorial service for Mark and Jeanne Hounsell Saturday at LifePoint Church was attended by nearly 1,000 people.

An honor guard consisting of both Douglas County and South Lake Tahoe officers escorted the caskets into the church.

Mark Hounsell is a former Douglas deputy and a South Lake Tahoe police officer.

"They loved each other well, and loved us well," Pastor Bill McCready said on Saturday.

The couple and a friend were killed Oct. 17. The four Hounsell children are Tyler, 14, Lance, 11, Emma, 6, and Corbin, 4, who were in the wreck. Jeanne was Emma and Corbin's mother. More that $84,000 has been raised as of Saturday to help support the children.
