Melody Ahlstrom Card said her older sister Meagan was so funny that even their fights were hilarious.
“She always knew how to make you laugh about anything,” the 19-year-old Nashville resident said.
Meagan Ahlstrom, 24, of St. Charles was killed in an alcohol-related car crash early Sunday in Morris. Ahlstrom and her mother were returning from a trip to visit Card, who lives in Nashville with her husband, Lee.
Ahlstrom was driving north on Route 47 near the Grundy County Fairgrounds shortly after 4 a.m. when a car crossed the center line from the southbound lane and collided with her car head on, according to the Grundy County coroner’s office.
Joe Olvera, 32, of Oak Lawn has been charged with felony aggravated driving under the influence of alcohol in connection with the crash, Grundy County State’s Attorney Sheldon Sobol said.
