BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — A woman who died with four of her children in an attack in Mexico is being remembered in North Dakota for her kindness and faith.

where she often attended the Mormon Sunday school class he taught in Stanley, in northwestern North Dakota.

Kannianen says she was kind and “very earnest about her faith.” The Kannianens say the family left North Dakota several months ago and before their twins were born.

Elizabeth Kannianen says she can’t tell her own children about the murders.
She says she fears “it’s too much.”
