The troubled singer Mindy McCready will be layed to rest Tuesday, Feb. 26 in her home town of Ft. Myers, Florida.
The funeral for the late country star will be held at Crossroads Church and will be private. A Friday news release says a memorial organized by friends and the music community is tentatively scheduled for March 6 at Cathedral of the Incarnation.
McCready committed suicide at her home in Heber Springs, Ark., days after leaving a court-ordered substance abuse treatment program. The 37-year-old mother of two died from a single gunshot to the head about a month after her longtime record producer boyfriend David Wilson was believed to have killed himself in the same location.
Mindy’s two children have been placed under state care in Ark. until custody issues have been decided.
