A Rochester Police officer who died unexpectedly will be laid to rest Thursday. The funeral for Felicia Gilchrist is scheduled for 11 a.m. at the Browncroft Community Church in Penfield.

The family of Felicia Gilchrist says the medical examiner says she died of natural causes after a car crash last week. News10NBC was told Gilchrist's father was taking her to Unity Hospital because she was sick. Police say her father ran a red light at the intersection of Long Pond and Latta Road in Greece and collided with another car.

No one else was seriously hurt and Gilchrist's father was not ticketed.
