SIOUX FALLS, SD -
Family members, colleagues, dignitaries and South Dakota residents are preparing to say their final goodbyes this week to former Governor Bill Janklow.
Following a public viewing Tuesday morning in Pierre, a special prayer service is planned for 1:00 p.m. CST. KELO TV will carry this special prayer service live on air. It will also be streamed live at KELOLAND.com.
Following the prayer service, Janklow's body will be escorted to Our Savior's Lutheran Church in Sioux Falls. Visitation will resume at 6:00 p.m. with a public prayer service at 6:30.
Final respects will be paid to Janklow on Wednesday. His funeral service is scheduled to begin at 10:30 a.m. at Our Savior's Lutheran Church. Former US Senator Tom Daschle will deliver the eulogy. Governor Dennis Daugaard and Bill's son, Russ Janklow, are both expected to speak at the service.
While the church can hold more than 2,000 people, all of South Dakota will be able to watch the service. KELOLAND News will bring you event live on KELO TV and stream it live on KELOLAND.com.
Janklow will later be buried at the Black Hills National Cemetery in a private, family burial.
The Janklow family has asked that flowers not be sent to any of the services. Instead, they say donations can be made to the Make-A-Wish Foundation, Dougherty Hospice House, or the William J. Janklow Scholarship at the University of South Dakota.
