An Illinois trooper killed in the line of duty has been honored on a memorial wall in the Illinois State Police Memorial Park in Springfield.

The State Journal-Register reports that friends, family members and colleagues of Trooper Brooke Jones-Story gathered Saturday to add her name. The 34-year-old was killed in March when a semitrailer struck her while she was conducting a traffic stop near Freeport.

Attendees also included U.S. Sen. Tammy Duckworth.
