TACOMA, Wash. (AP) -- A memorial service will be held at 1 p.m. Tuesday at Pacific Lutheran University in Tacoma to celebrate the life of Mount Rainier National Park Ranger Margaret Anderson.

She was shot to death on New Year's Day while working at the park. The gunman was found dead the next day.

Anderson was married to another Rainier ranger and leaves two young children at the home in Eatonville. Family and friends held a candlelight service Sunday evening in Eatonville in her memory.

The park reopened to the public Saturday for the first time since the shooting.
