Krystle Campbell Mourned at Medford Funeral

A firefighter salutes people entering St. Joseph's Church in Medford for the funeral of Boston Marathon bombings victim Krystle Campbell Monday.

A deep sadness permeated downtown Medford Monday for the funeral of Krystle Campbell, a native daughter killed one week ago in the bombings attacks at the Boston Marathon. 

The funeral brought out hundreds, lining both sides of High Street as traffic was shut down near St. Joseph’s Church

So many came out that the church got to capacity with many still lined up past the St. Joseph’s Social Center.

While they came to pay their respects to Campbell, 29, who most recently lived in Arlington and worked as a restaurant manager, many also came to shield the family from a potential protest.

The Westboro Baptist Church had threatened to picket the funeral, as they do at many high-profile events, to espouse their anti-gay views.

Teamster Local 25 members came out in full force to block a potential protest, forming a human shield along the side of High Street near Boynton Road.

No church protesters appeared at the funeral location Monday. read more
