SUTHERLAND SPRINGS, Texas - Originally from Harrison, Michigan, Shani Corrigan, 51, had moved to Texas, where she became part of the praise team at the Sutherland Springs church.
Shani and her husband Robert were high school sweethearts who married in 1985 after graduation.
Their son, Forrest, died last year, and the pastor at First Baptist officiated the funeral. Two other sons are on active duty, Haley said in a statement.
As members of the Harrison community gathered to remember the victims, Robert's mother, Jean-Anne Corrigan, told CNN affiliate WDIV that she believes both her son and his wife are in heaven.
"God is in control, and I know that my son and my daughter-in-law are in the arms of Jesus," she said. "I know that."
