Friends and family of 36-year-old Rienna Nagel are gathering in Spruce Grove on Saturday to celebrate the womans life.
The body of Nagel, a mother of five, was found by police at her Spruce Grove home after they received a 911 call early last Saturday morning. Nagel's husband, Christopher Ray Nagel, 36, was taken into police custody and has been charged with first-degree murder.
The memorial is being held at the Spruce Grove Alliance Church. Family are asking that, in lieu of flowers, donations are made to a trust fund for Nagel's children.
Nagel's family said in a statement that the five children "are very well and are being cared for by friends and family at this time."
