GRAYSON COUNTY, TX -- The investigation continues following the beating death of a Grayson County woman.

Instead of reuniting for Christmas, family members of a senior citizen murdered this week met up on Friday evening at her home prepare for a memorial service.

The service for Marlene Cannon, 70, has been set for 2 p.m. on Saturday at Church of the Resurrection on West Burton Street in Sherman.

Deputies say they got a 9-1-1 call on Monday asking for an ambulance at Scott Hill Road, west of Pottsboro, for a woman who was covered in blood.

They found the retired accountant, who family members describe as kind and compassionate, was severely beaten.

She was taken to a Plano hospital and died from her injuries on Wednesday. Cannon is survived by three siblings, three kids, six grandchildren and six great-grandchildren.

The Texas Rangers and deputies have searched the property, which was a bar that Cannon took over and turned into her home. It was released it back to the family.

If you have any information about who may have committed this crime, you are asked to call the Grayson County Sheriff's Office.
