A funeral for Anne Smedinghoff is being held at St. Luke Catholic Church in River Forest.
Family, friends, and neighbors paid their respects at her wake in Oak Park Tuesday.
Smedinghoff was walking with four other Americans when all of them were killed by a suicide bomber on April 6.
The group had gotten lost as they tried to deliver books to school children.
Smedinghoff joined the Foreign Service after college.
She volunteered to go to Afghanistan.
She was 25.
