Family and friends of Nicole Lynn Hoffman and Robert Corona Jr., who were killed more than a week ago in a traffic collision, say they are expecting scores of well-wishers at a funeral service scheduled for the couple Tuesday.

The service is expected to begin at 10 a.m. Tuesday at Real Life Church on Newhall Ranch Road.

“It’s open to the public and we’re expecting a lot of people,” Hoffman’s sister, Brittany Lauren Reph, said Monday.

“We’re all holding up well,” she said, referring to the two grieving families.

Corona, 25, of Castaic, and Hoffman, 19, of Valencia, suffered fatal injuries in a crash Nov. 8 on Highway 14. Corona died on Nov. 9 at Antelope Valley Hospital; Hoffman died Nov. 10 at the same hospital.

The couple, who both worked at In-N-Out Burger in Saugus, were popular and well-loved, judging from an outpouring of emotion upon news of their deaths. The two were an inseparable boyfriend-girlfriend team, fellow workers said.

Rita’s restaurant on Seco and Bouquet canyon roads will donate 15 percent to funds set aside for families of the victims from noon to 9 p.m. Tuesday, said Rebecca Barrios, who works at the restaurant.

“We are expecting a lot of people,” she said. Diners must present a fundraising flier for the donation to be made.

On Wednesday, all Jersey Mike’s Subs locations in the Santa Clarita Valley will collect money for each of the families affected by the tragedy. The sandwich shops will donate 20 percent of their proceeds for customers who show fliers when they order, said spokeswoman Amy Sandberg.
