Kate Armand Service

Posted on 30th December 2016 at 09:16

Family members now say that a Celebration of Life for Kate Armand will be held from 3 to 5 pm on Saturday, January 7th at the Kelso-Longview Elks Lodge. The 24 year-old Kelso High School graduate was shot and killed by her estranged husband on Christmas Day; 30 year-old James Tylka was killed later, dying in a shootout with police. Oregon State Trooper Nic Cederberg is recovering from critical wounds that he received in that shootout with Tylka. A new website is set up to help Brynn Armand-Tylka, the baby girl that’s left behind after the death of both parents. Funds that were previously donated to a GoFundMe accounts are being transferred to a secure OnPoint Credit Union account, which you can still access through “Brynn Support and Contribution” on Donations to the Brynn Armand-Tylka Contribution Account can be made at any OnPoint Credit Union branch, and the family is asking that donations be made to this account, in lieu of sending flowers.
