Cameron (WQOW) –  The funeral for James and Denise Closs was held Saturday afternoon at St. Peters Catholic Church in Cameron.

It’s been nearly two weeks since the Barron County community faced a devastating loss. The parking lot was overflowing, as family and friends came together to share their condolences with the Closs family.

News 18 spoke with Missy Ruffin, a friend of the family leaving the funeral; she said the Closs’ were good people.

“Jim [Closs] is the type that he is so much into the Packers that he would take off [work] if the Packers would play on Monday night,” said Ruffin. He would take Tuesday off because he knows he would be too hungover to go to work.”

Ruffin went on to talk about Denise Closs.

“It was all about Jayme, everything,” said Ruffin. “[Denise’s] world revolved around Jayme. When she was younger she had her in beauty pageants, ‘please vote on my daughter’s pictures’, you know, so that she wins the contest. She was all about Jayme.”

Ruffin said she worked with James Closs for about 15 years. The funeral ended at 2 p.m. Media was not allowed inside, or on the church’s property.
