Rev. Mary-Marguerite Kohn died at the age of 62 on Saturday.

Family and friends of a slain Episcopal priest are gathering in Baltimore to mourn her passing. The funeral service for the Rev. Mary-Marguerite Kohn is being held this afternoon at the Cathedral of the Incarnation on East University Ave.

Kohn, 62, was co-rector of St. Peter's Episcopal Church in Ellicott City. She and her assistant Brenda Brewington were shot in the parish office. Brewington was killed immediately, but Kohn held on until Saturday, before succumbing to her wounds.

Police say the shooter was a homeless man who had been banned from the church food bank because of his aggressive behavior. Investigators say 56-year-old Douglas Franklin Jones then took his own life in the nearby woods, where he lived.
