Memorial set Friday for slain teacher, son

May 05, 2004

A memorial is planned Friday for a Harford County teacher and her son, who were killed last week in Pennsylvania, school officials said yesterday.

North Bend Elementary School in Jarrettsville plans to hold the ceremony for Rita Hofler and Kevin Gehring at 7 p.m. Friday in its gymnasium, schools spokesman Donald R. Morrison said.

Hofler, 48, and Gehring, 17, were fatally shot April 25 at the Shrewsbury Township, Pa., home of her estranged husband, Donald B. Hofler, a retired Loyola College professor, who has been charged in the two killings.

FOR THE RECORD - Memorial service: An article in yesterday's Maryland section incorrectly listed the date of a memorial service for Harford County elementary school teacher Rita Hofler and her son, Kevin Gehring. The service is to be held at 7 p.m. June 4 in the gymnasium of North Bend Elementary School in Jarrettsville. The Sun regrets the error.
