Sturgis Woman Killed in Union Co. Wreck

A Sturgis woman killed in a single-vehicle wreck in Union County Monday morning will be laid to rest Thursday.

According to the obituary, 29 year old Delacee Raven Markham was a 2005 Union County High School graduate who was attending Henderson Community College. She worked part-time at Redbanks Nursing Home.

Union County Sheriff’s Detective Kyle Dame told WMSK News that he and emergency personnel responded to the scene of the accident on KY 360 near John Hite Road around 7:30 a.m. Monday. He says a Union County resident, who was not wearing a seatbelt, was fatally ejected from a vehicle after it dropped off the road and the driver over-corrected causing the vehicle to rollover multiple times and come to rest in a field.

The sheriff’s office was assisted at the scene by the Union County Coroner’s Office, Union County Ambulance Service, Union County and Morganfield Rescue Squads, and Kentucky State Police.

Funeral services for Delacee will be Thursday afternoon at 1:00 at Whitsell Funeral Home in Morganfield. She is survived by her husband, Kenneth Markham of Sturgis, three children, her parents, and ten siblings.
