PHOENIX — A full-honors funeral for a former Phoenix Fire Department captain was scheduled for Tuesday morning at a suburban church, authorities said.
The funeral procession of Crystal Rezzonico will close two freeways, Loop 101 East and Interstate 17, starting around noon.
Loop 101 East will shut down between 75th Avenue and I-17, while I-17 south will be closed between Loop 101 and McDowell Road.
Rezzonico died Feb. 17 from injuries she suffered in a 2009 wreck while she was on duty.
Her injuries included a skull fracture that led to multiple brain surgeries, and both legs and both shoulders were broken. Rezzonico spent months in rehabilitation relearning how to walk and talk.
But Rezzonico, 56, went back to work about a year after the accident and eventually retired in 2014.
She is survived by her sons, Cutter Pleasant and Austin Rezzonico.
The procession will begin after the 10:30 a.m. services at Christ’s Church of the Valley in Peoria, near 67th Avenue and Happy Valley Road. The procession will end at Greenwood Memory Lawn Cemetery in Phoenix near 23rd Avenue and Van Buren Street.
