BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — The funeral of a 64-year-old woman shot to death with three of her grandchildren in their New Town home is being held in the northwest North Dakota community.

Martha Johnson and the grandchildren — 13-year-old Benjamin Schuster, 10-year-old Julia Schuster and 6-year-old Luke Schuster — were found fatally shot in their home on Nov. 18. A man who killed himself the same day as the shootings has been described as a person of interest.

The funeral for Johnson was scheduled Monday. Services for the children were slated for Thursday in the eastern North Dakota community of Warsaw.

Johnson's obituary says was involved in many community activities, from Girl Scouts to 4-H. She also was the first female president of the New Town Chamber of Commerce.
