Magda and Willa died in the fatal accident on 15 July.
GEORGE NEWS Well-known local property rental agent Magda Kruger (62) and her husband, Willa Pretorius (73), a retired church minister, were killed in a car crash on Tuesday 15 July.
They were travelling to Polokwane to visit family, and then on to a holiday resort in Limpopo for their honeymoon, when the accident happened.
Their grandson, Adriaan Pretorius (30), who was with them in the car, survived the accident and escaped with minor injuries.
They were married just 11 days after her birthday on 4 July. Both were fatally injured when Willa lost control of his car at the Noupoort turn-off near Hanover on the N1. According to Adriaan, his grandfather swerved to avoid hitting a stationary car.
He tried to recover and steer back onto the tarmac, but the car skidded sideways and then rolled over into the veld. Both Magda and Willa died on the scene.
A memorial service was held in George on Saturday 19 July at the Pinkster Protestant Church in Heather Park.
The funeral was held in Roodepoort at the Pinkster Protestant Church in Horison on Tuesday 22 July.
