A Zimmerman mother and her two young children found dead in their home Easter Sunday will be laid to rest Saturday.

Investigators have ruled the deaths of 7-year-old Nolan and 6-year-old Josephine Shields a homicide. The medical examiner says the two drowned, and their mother, 35-year-old Stephanie Shields, likely took her own life.

Police are awaiting lab results to determine how she died.

Funerals for all three will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday at St. Andrew’s Church in Elk River.
