Public Funeral Held in Florida for Mindy McCready

Music City MediaThe late Mindy McCready was remembered by friends, family and supporters at a public funeral in Fort Myers, Florida, on Tuesday.

During the service at Crossroads Baptist Church, the singer's mother, Gayle Inge, alluded to her daughter's well-documented personal problems. According to Fort Myers' WZVN-TV, Inge remarked, "She battled things in her flesh. Her spirit may finally find healing."

McCready's music was played before the service.

A funeral director says a burial date and location have yet to be determined.  A separate memorial service is tentatively scheduled in Nashville at Cathedral of the Incarnation on Wednesday, March 6.

McCready took her own life February 17 in Heber Springs, Arkansas, after several difficult weeks, during which her partner, David Wilson, committed suicide and her two sons were taken from her by authorities.  McCready was 37.
