The Minnesota musician who was stabbed to death while studying abroad will be honored at two memorial services happening over the next couple of weekends.
Sarah Papenheim, 21, of Andover, was attending college in Rotterdam, Netherlands, at the time of her apparent murder earlier this month; local authorities say her roommate killed her.
Her funeral is scheduled for 5:00 p.m. next Saturday, Dec. 29, at the Bradshaw Funeral Home in White Bear Lake. This will come directly after a three-hour visitation.
The funeral home says the service will be a "lighthearted ceremony and sharing of remembrances" of Sarah.
The following Saturday, Jan. 6, a "Celebration of Sarah Papenheim" will take place at Cabooze, a music club and bar in Minneapolis. Details about the event can be found on the venue's Facebook page.
"All are invited," the notice from Bradshaw Funeral Home says.
There was a tribute concert for the late drummer at Shaw's in northeast Minneapolis last week, Fox 9 reported.
Sarah was studying studying psychology "with an emphasis in suicide" at Rotterdam's Erasmus University at the time of her death. As a GoFundMe set up in her honor says, she lost her brother to suicide three years ago.

The latest on the homicide case
According to authorities in the Netherlands, the suspected homicide happened during an argument with a 23-year-old man who was arrested after fleeing on a train to Eindhoven, a city located about 70 miles southeast of Rotterdam.
The suspect has since been identified as Joel Schelling, who was Sarah's roommate.
ABC News reports Schelling is believed to have been experiencing some mental health problems, with Papenheim texting a friend in Minnesota that said: "My roommate told me he's gonna kill 3 people. So I'm gonna have to go to the police."
She was killed in her apartment six days after that text was sent.
It appears that no formal charges have been filed against Schelling yet. The Star Tribune reports that he is in jail while police "continue collecting evidence and interviewing witnesses."
