A memorial is being held for a Pennsylvania soccer mom who symbolized the national gun-rights debate before being killed in a murder-suicide.

Family and friends will remember Meleanie Hain on Tuesday during a service at a funeral home in Lancaster.

The 31-year-old suburban mother made headlines last year for carrying a loaded handgun to her young daughter's soccer game.

Authorities say Hain's husband, Scott, fatally shot her last week at their home before killing himself. The couple had three children.

Meleanie Hain's burial will be private. Instead of flowers, her family requests donations be made to the Pennsylvania Firearm Owners Association.
