Thousands of people are expected at Tuesday’s memorial service for Margaret Anderson, the Mount Rainier National Park ranger who was fatally shot on New Year’s Day.

A procession of law enforcement vehicles, ambulances, fire trucks and others will leave Clover Park Technical College in Lakewood Tuesday morning.

A 90-minute service is scheduled at 1 p.m. at Pacific Lutheran University.

Interior Secretary Ken Salazar and National Park Service Director Jon Jarvis are scheduled to speak, along with local ministers.

Anderson, a 34-year-old mother of two young girls, was shot and killed after setting up a roadblock to stop a vehicle that blew through a checkpoint. The driver of that vehicle shot Anderson in her car and fled on foot. Searchers found Benjamin Colton Barnes dead in a snowy creek.
