NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) - A memorial service for the volunteer assistant head coach of Old Dominion University's women's basketball team, who passed away after a 12-year battle with breast cancer Friday, has been set for Monday afternoon.
Sara Jones served as head coach Karen Barefoot's volunteer assistant for the past two seasons and was described as "an incredible motivator" for the Lady Monarchs, in a press release from ODU Sunday.
The memorial service will take place at 2 p.m. at the WAVE Church at 1000 North Great Neck Road in Virginia Beach.
Jones' family is asking that in lieu off flowers and gifts, that donations be made to Beyond Boobs, a local support group that consists of women who have fought or are fighting cancer.
