Posted: Updated:

CAIRO, Ill. (KFVS/AP) - A southern Illinois city where two bank workers were killed during a botched robbery is planning to memorialize the victims.

The city's public library is looking for donations to build a memorial honoring the victims of a deadly armed robbery at First National Bank.

Anita Grace and Nita Smith died in the attack. A third woman was severely injured.

The memorial would be built in Halliday Park, with two marble benches and a marked tree.
