Vigil held for Evansville H.S. grad


EVANSVILLE (WKOW) -- Friends and family in Evansville celebrated the life of a woman who died last weekend.

Friday they shared stories and pictures of 23-year-old Neala Frye.

She graduated from Evansville High School in 2007 and was in her senior year at UW-La Crosse.

People who knew her say she was caring, supportive and knew how to brighten your day.

"She had such an outgoing personality. I fell in love with her the day I met her and we were instant best friends. I think that's how a lot of her relations started," says Rachel Unseth.

The group concluded the night with a candlelight vigil.    

Authorities say Frye died of hypothermia Sunday in Onalaska.

Her funeral is Saturday in Beloit.
