MILLBURY, Ohio (AP) – A mother and her young son are among the seven people killed in a weekend tornado in Ohio, along with the father of a high school valedictorian whose graduation was postponed because of storm damage.
Amy Sigler says her sister, 36-year-old Mary Walters, died along with her son, 4-year-old Hayden. Only the foundation remains from the Walters’ home in Millbury, the northwest Ohio community devastated by the Tornado Saturday night.
The Wood County Coroner also has identified three other victims: 56-year-old Kathleen Hammit of Wauseon, 21-year-old Bailey Bowman of Walbridge and 46-year-old Ted Kranz of Millbury.
Kranz was the father of Katie Kranz, the Valedictorian from Lake High School, which was destroyed before Sunday’s planned graduation. It has been rescheduled for Tuesday.
