SAN ANTONIO - The first of many funeral services are expected to begin this weekend for the victims killed in this week's church attack.

Scott & Karen Marshall

(AP) More than 500 people have attended a private funeral on a San Antonio-area Air Force base for a husband and wife who were among the more than two dozen killed when a gunman opened fire at a small-town Texas church.

The San Antonio Express-News reports that the service for Scott and Karen Marshall was held Thursday afternoon at Joint Base San Antonio-Randolph.

Randy Martin, spokesman for the 12th Flying Training Wing, says a traditional military funeral was held for the couple, who were killed Sunday at First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs. The service was closed to media and the public at their family's request.

Martin told the newspaper that Karen Marshall was promoted posthumously to senior master sergeant. She had been planning to retire from the military soon. Martin said Scott Marshall, already a military retiree, was a civilian employee at the base.

Richard & Therese Rodriguez

Richard and Therese Rodriguez will be laid to rest on Saturday in Sutherland Springs.

The visitation for the couple will be held at Grace Bible Church in La Vernia, beginning at noon. It will be followed immediately by the funeral service at 2 p.m.

Richard was a retiree of the railroad system. He and Therese were in church every Sunday. They will be laid to rest in the Sutherland Springs cemetery.

Haley Krueger

A visitation for Haley Krueger, 16, will be held on Sunday at the Mission Park Funeral Chapel South at 5 p.m.

A private burial will be held Monday morning.
